God Bless Tony Blair. He is a wonderful man and an asset to this world. I was in London with a friend on 9/11. We never felt unsafe or unwelcome there. The British people were very good to us, from Tony Blair on down to the average person. I do hope that Mr. Blair is successful and welcomed into his new position.

Tony was a bit of a knob at times, but not as corrupt as some would paint him.

On the other hand, Brown is a complete moron. He's not elected as Prime Minister, he was just given the job by his mate. He's going to use his time in the hotseat to further his own agenda. Its a complete rape of Democracy.

They should have called a General Election when Tony left, they had plenty of advance notice that he was going.

The period that includes Swedish as it is spoken today is termed nusvenska (lit. "Now-Swedish") in linguistic terminology and started in the last decades of the 19th century. The period saw a democratization of the language with a less formal written language that came closer to spoken language. The growth of a public schooling system also led to the evolution of so-called boksvenska (literally "book Swedish"), especially among the working classes, where spelling to some extent influenced pronunciation, particularly in official contexts. With the industrialization and urbanization of Sweden well under way by the last decades of the 19th century, a new breed of authors made their mark on Swedish literature. Many scholars, politicians and other public figures had a great influence on the new national language that was emerging, and among them were prolific authors like the poet Gustaf Fröding, Nobel laureate Selma Lagerlöf, and radical writer and playwright August Strindberg.
