The article looks at the British agricultural industry under the 10-year governance of Prime Minister Tony Blair. It is said that Blair has promised to deal with the burden of regulation facing the industry but in his 10 years, the onus has worsened and left British farmers at a distinct disadvantage to their European counterparts. The 10 most memorable events of Blair's 10 years and the views of several individuals in the industry on how Blair will be remembered are outlined.
