It has been nine years since Blair has withdrawn himself from politics after developing an organization which has got 200 people and had branches in more than 20 countries. Blair announced that he will now concentrate on non-profit organizations. However, in the UK he was criticized for his ways of earning money and slowly his reputation started to degrade.

Blair said to a magazine that problems which are in the party run deeper rather than a single person. He said that it is a problem between 2 different cultures which comes under one organization and as per history labor was formed to represent in the parliament and then to become a government of the country.
