More Information


Tony Blair came into power with the Labour Party’s landslide election in 1997 at the age of 44. On May 5, 2005, Blair made history by becoming the first Labour leader ever to win a third consecutive term, equaling the record of former Conservative prime minister Margaret Thatcher.

Blair moved the Labour Party to the center of British politics in a move alternatively called “New Labour” and “The Third Way,” abandoning the party’s traditional socialist platform in favor of promoting pro-market policies.

Blair’s government pursued a variety of socially liberal policies, including the introduction of civil partnerships for gays and lesbians, the end of the ban on gays in Britain’s armed forces, and the semi-legalization of marijuana. Blair also sought to reform the House of Lords, reducing the number of hereditary peers. Although under his leadership, his party has supported centrist, pro-market policies, including a freeze on the income tax, Blair supported major increases in spending in British social services, including universal healthcare system and public education.
