dc.description.abstractTony Blair served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2 May 1997 until 27 June 2007, having been elected the youngest leader of the Labour Party on 21 July 1994. In office he had the distinction of winning three consecutive general election victories and being the Party’s longest-serving Prime Minister to date. As Prime Minister he proved to be a divisive leader through moving the Labour Party to the centre of British politics and establishing important social and constitutional changes, while at the same time supporting US foreign policy by committing the UK to participate in the invasions of Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003. The catastrophe of the Iraq War has overshadowed by his significant domestic and foreign policy achievements.en
