Tony Blair will stand down as an MP at the next general election, he has told his family and close political allies.

His move will help avert any charge that he is lingering in the Commons to act as a backseat driver to his expected Labour successor, Gordon Brown. ...

His friends say he is not seeking a frontline political role outside British politics, such as president of the European Commission, or some other big international body, such as the United Nations. ...

Mr Blair has a poor personal voting record in the House of Commons, and his plan to leave parliament may be seen by some as further confirmation that he has never been excessively attracted to Westminster's "club" and its traditions.

Yeah, that was it, Tony never really cared for the job. That's why he
has to disappear.
