Regardless of your personal opinion on the man, Tony Blair has changed UK Politics for decades to come. If nothing else, he was and still is a great politician, I would hazard as to say greater than the original Teflon Don - Lord Mandilson.
Across the UK children weren't educated, trash wasn't collected and hospital patients weren't treated (one of the angles of 'socialised medicine' that wasn't covered during the furious Obama-care debates...)
Changes to pensions to make them more affordable are unavoidable. Threats from trade union bosses, made from the comfort of their well-feathered nests, should be challenged because the facts are there for reasonable people to see and debate.
The Government are trying to implement pretty modest reforms which will be fairer for taxpayers but still leave teachers with generous provision. If they are going to enjoy generous pensions it is only fair they should pay a bit more of the cost
