Bye Blair, and thank you.

Big day today. Sad and yes, farewell to someone who has effectively been our spiritual
leader  for 13 years.

your feelings and how you will
remember him is not to be judged.

What I do know is that no other government in
history have committed as much resources – yes, money – to the understanding, development
and promotion of creativity as this one.

I doubt if
it will happen again.
