      In Tony Blair’s autobiography he claimed that his government was the victim of unforeseen events, but as Tom Bower makes clear, it was a deliberate policy of maximizing immigration. Blair’s interest was solely limited to public perception and how it might affect the next election—not the asylum seeker influx itself. Tony Blair originally formed the Blair ministry in May after being invited by Queen Elizabeth II to form a new government following the resignation of the previous Prime Minister, John Major of the Conservative Party, as a result of the Labour Party's landslide victory at the general election. He would serve as the Prime Minister for three successive ministries and parliamentary terms until his Monarch: Elizabeth II.

      The country, at the time, was being drummed into war by the Blair government, desperate to achieve the United Nations’ sanction for the imminent American-led invasion of Iraq.   Blair was, and is, unapologetic in his defence of the universality of the "western" values of individual freedoms, liberal democracy and free market economy. One of the most entertaining ingredients of this book is Blair's reactions to the challenges of politics in the age of 24/7 media/5().
