Tony Blair Comes to California
Blair on Vacation or Looking for Work?
British Prime Minister Tony Blair's popularity in the UK was already low due to the war in Iraq, but his latest stand with Bush against a ceasefire in Lebanon has caused him to come under more fire than ever before from within his own Labour Party. After meeting with Bush in DC on July 28th, Blair is vacationing in California. He arrived in San Francisco on Friday July 29th, and attended a party with George Shultz Saturday night. He toured the Delancey Street Foundation Sunday morning with Mayor Newsom before heading down to Monterey to attend a party hosted by Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch at the Pebble Beach resort. Blair was in South San Francisco Monday meeting with biotech CEOs at Genentech before he headed to LA for a meeting with Schwarzenegger. Sunday morning he toured the Delancey Street Foundation in SF, before heading to Monterey for a party hosted by Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch at the Pebble Beach resort. Murdoch is expected to offer Blair a senior role in his News Corporation empire when he stands down as Prime Minister.
