Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But if you look at who blair talked to, he didn't really talk to the males in Cabinet either. blair din't do Cabinet govt, he surrounded himself with a cabal of like-minded authoritarian appratchiks who sidestepped Cabinet, the Commons, the investigative committees to strongarm their way, their view.

One of the worst aspects of their informal sofa style govt is that there is no audit trail for decisions, nobody to blame, no tracking who said what when. nobody really knows why we went to war, cos nobody ever took minutes of meetings that were informal conversations in corridors. The UK was run like a cheap spiv's business operating from the back of a van.
