TONY Blair has privately admitted that he wants Democrat John Kerry to win tomorrow’s US election.
The Prime Minister has acknowledged to at least two confidantes that a Kerry win would be a ‘lifeline’ for his own political future.
If Kerry does triumph, the result will undoubtedly help draw the poison out of the Iraq debate in Britain in the run up to a general election It would mean Blair could focus on the future of Iraq – not the disasters of the past.
And it may also soothe fractured relations within the Labour Party.
