Blair's uncharacteristic self-restraint

Charles Moore in the Spectator.

One of the minor, but horrible consequences of disasters such as the tsunami is the chance it gives for the self-righteous to accuse others of not caring as much as they. Thus Michael Howard criticised Tony Blair for failing to return from his Egyptian holiday when really the Prime Minister should have been praised for his uncharacteristic self-restraint.

Its a good point, but it still a pretty minor consequence.
