Breakfast with Frost
The Prime Minister Tony Blair
The Prime Minister Tony Blair
Sunday 13th January on BBC One

Sir David Frost was joined this week by the Prime Minister, the Chief Constable of the Northern Ireland Police Service, Sir Ronnie Flanagan, and by David Davies, Executive Director of the Football Association.

In his interview the Prime Minister defended his international mission to India and Pakistan while hundreds of thousands of passengers were left stranded by rail strikes in Britain.
Tony Blair said that money was not put into the railways in 1997 because the economy needed to be sorted out and education and health were top priorities. He said that if his Government had tried to tackle the privatised railways when it came to power in 1997 there would have been outcry that it was "Old Labour back".
The Prime Minister also praised the Prince of Wales for the way he had handled the revelations about Prince Harry's underage drinking and cannabis smoking.

Sir Ronnie Flanagan condemned the sectarian murder of a Catholic postman in Belfast as a "cowardly" act. He said the recent surge of violence was "barbaric".

David Davies said that the FA and the Government are working to build a new national stadium on the Wembley site. He also said that Cardiff must brace themselves for a stiff penalty following crowd trouble which blighted their FA Cup win over Leeds
