CaptionTony Blair on the campaign trail: Blair enjoys a rare quiet moment with his wife Cherie. The general election, appropriately held on Europe's Labour Day, brought a landslide victory for Tony Blair's New Labour. With 45 percent of the vote the party scored its largest victory since 1945. Introducing a style of government he promised would be modern and dynamic, Blair waived traditional protocol and insisted that first names be used in his new cabinet.
