The Prime Minister's popularity has taken a nosedive since the end of the war in Iraq, according to a new opinion poll.

An ICM poll commissioned by the Guardian gives him a personal rating of minus 13, compared to plus 8 during the hostilities.

The failure to provide evidence of Iraq's weapons, the controversial Cabinet reshuffle and the recent row over taxes are all given as factors.

I hate to say this, because I really admired Blair's courage in the leadup to the Iraq War, but this is not necessarily a bad thing. His next move seems to be an attempt to put Britain on the Euro, which is a really, really bad idea. Britain's greatness always came from its independence from the barbarians - sorry, "Europe" - and they should protect it now more than ever. Blair seems irredeemably dedicated to the EU monster state, so as much as it pains me to say it, I wont be sorry to see him go.
