Blair gets digital
British PM Tony Blair spoke with Nicolas Sarkozy soon after his win, congratulating him and getting the first opportunity to talk with Sarkozy's choice of French Prime Minister. But that wasn't enough for Downing Street. Yesterday Blair's official Youtube page posted two video congratulations by the British Prime Minister, one 2:32 minute version in English, and a longer 3:43 minute version in French. Unfortunately, comments are banned, so Blair won't be getting any hints on improving his French (or English for that matter, he seemed to be struggling at certain moments). Ironically, the video looks like it was dreamed up by Segolene Royal's campaign...perhaps her campaign advisors now have some new opportunities on the horizon.
