So Tony Blair is finally going.
It's strange to be away during such a momentus occasion with only the internet for news. It's hard to gauge the mood back home.
But 'll say thank you to him for one thing only:
Thank you Tony Blair, you made me so ashamed to be British that I left my country and, for the last two and a half years, have had the time of my life overseas.
During that time I have met many other Brits, Americans and Australians who were also part of the "shamed drain".
