Paper: Blair set to end ten year reign as British PM on May 9th

British Prime Minister Tony Blair will step down on May 9th, reports the Sunday Mail.

The decision, according to the paper, was made to preempt any charges made in the “cash for honors” scandal.

“That will trigger a seven-week leadership election process in the Labour Party and a new PM – probably Gordon Brown – will move into 10 Downing Street at the end of June,” writes Rob Gibson.

The Crown Prosecution Service is unlikely to make a decision about whether to bring criminal charges against some of Blair’s aides for allegedly taking kickbacks, despite ample evidence to do so, until Blair leaves office, according to the paper.
