    Tony Blair v John Humphrys

    Tony Blair, the former Labour prime minister, talks about the importance of accountability in his final interview with John Humphrys. He said that Boris Johnson's absence from the Today programme since he became prime minister "probably means that he is anxious about a sustained and forensic analysis of what he is trying to do." Paying tribute to Mr Humphrys, Mr Blair said: "I’m hesitating to say whether it has been a pleasure. It was often a pleasure. It was occasionally not a pleasure. But it was always worthwhile."
