British Prime Minister Tony Blair won his third term in the General Elections last Thursday, even though the party's majority in Parliament was significantly reduced. Today, according to CNN.com, Members of Parliament are calling for Blair to step down instead of serving his third term:

Labour MPs: Blair must go soon

QUOTE
LONDON, England -- Labour MPs have begun to call on Tony Blair to quit Downing Street long before he completes a full third term, although his allies dismissed them as isolated mavericks.

Speculation has been mounting that Blair would face pressure to step down as prime minister since he won Thursday's election with a significantly reduced parliamentary majority.

Blair has said he would serve a full third term but not take the Labour Party into another election. Thursday's victory marked the first time a Labour leader had won a third straight election.

Defeated UK Conservatives Look to Thriving GOP

QUOTE
With a third straight election defeat behind them, a group of prominent Conservative Party lawmakers and activists in Britain are calling for their party to adopt the successful image of the Republican Party in the U.S.


Personally, I am sure that if the Conservative Party would just focus on conservative issues, personal liberty, lower taxes, smaller government, more free markets, and disassociation from the EU, that they would sweep the elections.

They need to take those large issues, and show how they affect the people at the local level.

Of course they are going to lose much of London, Birmingham, and other Liberal strongholds, but they can win in the countryside.

They don't need to adopt the "image" of the US Republican Party, they need to define themselves as conservatives, both fiscally and socially.

I think that most people can see this for what it really is. I am not a Tory supporter by any means,(unlike my Son) but this is something that has been dragged up repeatedly to help along a smear campaign on David Cameron, with the elections not too far off!
It's something that is supposed to have happened years ago before he became an MP, and whilst he was still at school. Whilst I don't condone drugs by any means, I do feel that this should have remained private and in his past.

Interestingly, out of random interviews with the general public, many people's response is "so what". Whilst this isn't exactly my opinion, I do feel that everybody can make a mistake, it was allegedly dealt with at the time, and I feel that he should get the opportunity to put it behind him and be able to move on.
