Come on, Peter. If we were to cite instances of Bliar saying one thing then saying another when he deems it expedient we'd be here all night.
See also, for example, Bliar's recent statement that "I am a passionate pro-European. I always have been" and compare it with his speech in Sedgefield in 1983, when he was equally passionately stating "We'll negotiate a withdrawal from the E.E.C. which has drained our natural resources and destroyed jobs."
Then there's the time Bliar says he ran away from home as a teenager and got on a flight from Newcastle Airport to the Bahamas. This is odd, since there have never been flights to the Bahamas from Newcastle Airport...
