And yet another Blair book signing event canceled




Sounds like Blair can’t run away from his own history. First he was pelted with eggs and shoes in Dublin then he canceled an book signing event in London. Now that protesters discovered he was preparing for a party at the posh Tate Modern in London, he canceled his showing there as well.

A book-launch party for former British Prime Minister Tony Blair at London’s top modern art venue has been postponed following a threat by protesters to picket the event.

Blair spokesman Matthew Doyle said the Wednesday party at the Tate Modern had been pushed back, but would not say until when. He also refused to comment about why the party had been put off.

Blair’s book, “A Journey,” has reawakened the controversy over his decade at the top of British politics, particularly his decision to take the country to war in Iraq.
