Catalogue Note

Tony Blair was elected leader of the Labour Party in 1994 following the sudden death of his predecessor, John Smith. Blair was just 41 years old when he became Labour leader, his young age earning him the nickname ‘Bambi’. He would become the youngest Prime Minister in 200 years when he defeated John Major in 1997.
