Tony Blair

Presented by Kirsty Wark


Tony Blair's "legacy list" grew longer today after it became clear that he's supporting efforts for Britain to host a key element of the American "Son of Star Wars" missile defence system.

Plans to site so called "interceptors" in the Czech Republic and Poland have already sent the Russians thermo nuclear.

So what chance has Tony Blair of pulling this off in his few remaining months at Number 10 - and would it be in the teeth of opposition from many of his Labour colleagues?

And, if he is successful, where would the interceptors be installed?

In 2002 they paid 18,000 to fund a study to see whether certain people had extraordinary powers to enable them to "see" invisible objects.

They had some success, but not enough to put their plan into action. However Newsnight is having another go - tune in tonight to see if we made a breakthrough.
