Not So Great Britain

MP tells Blair Blame yourself for parliament’s weakness, not ‘feral’ media | June 19, 2007

A backbencher humiliated Tony Blair when he confronted him with examples of how he had eroded the importance of Parliament during his decade in power.

In a withering attack, Tory MP Peter Luff accused Mr Blair of hypocrisy after he claimed last week that a “feral” media had damaged trust in politics.

He said it was unacceptable for the Prime Minister to blame the Press for the public’s declining respect for Parliament when there were at least nine examples of him treating it with disdain.
