Tony Blair: if America does not want stem-cell research – we do

From BRITISH Prime Minister Tony Blair’s last speech as Labour leader at the party’s annual conference: How to be the world’s number one place of choice for bio-science – if America does not want stem-cell research – we do. …The Google generation has moved beyond the idea of 9 to 5, closed on weekends and Bank Holidays. Today’s technology is profoundly empowering. … We can only protect liberty by making it relevant to the modern world. That is why Identity Cards using biometric technology are not a breach of our basic rights, they are an essential part of responding to the reality of modern migration and protecting us against identity fraud. I remember when I introduced the DNA database. On it go all those who are arrested. We were told it was a monstrous breach of liberty. Link

  1. Stem cell research must go ahead despite the objections from Bush and his christian radicals. Britain is well placed to continue this work and has the necessary expertise and checks and balances to ensure a safe outcome.
