The people of the United Kingdom still have to endure the consequences of former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s

Administration. Questions over Blair rewards remain open as to the motivations, stakeholders, and beneficiaries. If it were not clear during Tony’s reign, then it is becoming abundantly clear as a result of the state of the economy. The Blair rewards program was designed to benefit Tony regardless of the repercussions to the general population. While in power, Tony Blair maintained sympathy from the people and obtained the benefit of the doubt concerning Blairrewards. It is often the case that the populous will choose to support individuals in power by assuming that they have access to information unknown by the public. This assumption excuses puzzling practices and suspicious actions of their political leaders. The Blair rewards program is a good example of how unchecked passivity can result in considerable consequences. It is a natural assumption that political leaders in an ideal sense should act in accordance to the country’s best interest. What is best for the country is oftentimes not too far out of line to what is best for the people. The fallacy of individuals capable of making the right decisions has been proven time and time again throughout history. Blair rewards is merely a modern example of politicians exhibiting the worst of human traits. It can be argued that self-interest is a major driving factor in politics. It fails to be included in political speeches and is oftentimes spun and sold as something that is good for each individual. The fact that Blair rewards was conducted so openly and without consequence is a prime example of individuals not thinking for themselves and trusting that politicians are not primarily self motivated. The difficulty in determining whether a Blairrewards program is of benefit to the individual or the people should not be that difficult to discern. For some reason, political leaders are considered somewhat above that of a normal human. Although time and again this proves not to be the case, the stigma remains. Perhaps it is a result of individuals not simply looking at the stakeholders of basic actions. By its very nature the Blair rewards program would have to benefit Tony Blair is some way otherwise there is no reason to reward. It is somewhat puzzling how Blair rewards could not have been realigned so that it would benefit Tony as well as the country as a whole. There simply must have been choices that could have been made that could have contributed to both Tony’s and the country’s future prosperity. The inability of political leaders to uncover win-win solutions to political and socio-economic problems is no doubt due to blind spots created by self interest. Author: Marley Masters
