British Prime Minister's Agenda

— Host Joe Palca talks with NPR's Michael Goldfarb about the agenda of Tony Blair, the newly-elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Blair's Labour government has been racing to follow through on campaign promises like imposing tuition on public higher education and granting Scotland and Wales significant autonomy. The Labour Party has shifted from its position on Great Britain's left...now it occupies Great Britain's so-called 'radical center.'
