The UK has no government at the moment.
Blair until now had been running things his way (presidential-type leadership, not parliament). Blair then tells everyone he won't be Prime Minister for the next election, therefore is a lame duck leader just trying create something good before he resigns, hoping to erase the bad press about Iraq. The labour members ditched his proposals for terrorist detention without trial and now feel they can disrupt his leadership. Gordon Brown is starting to make his mark before taking over as leader. It's all a bit of a mess. Conservative opposition is still in complete disarray so no hope there.
