With a 37% to 33% margin, looks like Tony Blair will serve another term.He dismisses any resignations rumors that are spreading.It will take the rest of the night for the final toll, but this looks as if it will be a slight majority.
Such an outcome could set the stage for Blair to be replaced in midterm by a party rival such as Treasury chief Gordon Brown (search). Brown is widely credited for the strong economy which appears to have helped clinch Labour's victory, outweighing the bitterness many voters said they felt over Iraq.

This seems to be a process that does not look promising, but at this stage, anything can happen.
Parliament is so different from the American way.
Tony Blair is very popular in the USA, from all indications and polls.

I logged in earlier on AOL to check my mail, and they were doing a poll on how many americans would vote for Blair, or think he should get another term. Last time i saw, around 6 hours ago, around 125,000 people voted, and about 85% voted that he should get a second term. It seems that the majority of the Brittish people also want him in office again.

How is that possible. I didn't vote for him and neither did anyone I know. Must be a conspiracy.....

Iraq must have been a popular war after all. Bush won and so it seems blair is going to win as well.

Not that I really doubted it, but good, I like Blair, even for all his faults.

I really should read up more on his (ex)opponents, most of what I know comes from party descriptions.
