Media in overdrive as Blair resigns


The great British public, however, are more measured in their reaction to the news, ranking it modestly in a list of more pressing current events.

One hour after Tony Blair confirms he is to step down as Prime Minister on 27 June, the most widely e-mailed articles on the BBC website are, in descending order:

  1. Oral sex linked to throat cancer
  2. How do you 'go' in space?
  3. Blair will stand down on 27 June.

I don't know why, but I find this strangely comforting.
