Recent history in newspaper: May 2, 1997 Tony Blair becomes PM after a Labour landslide

Recent history in newspaper: May 2, 1997 Tony Blair becomes PM after a Labour landslide
I didn't have a television at that time, so I didn't see Michael Portillo losing his seat. I listened to the radio, and I remember one commentator saying: "This is the biggest loss for the Tories since...since...since...the Duke of Wellington". I'm not a great fan of socialists, but it was a breath of fresh air after the scandal-ridden Tories. And I always liked Tony Blair's eloquence.
Soon after Labour came to power the BBC made a documentary about Robin Cook, who became Foreign Secretary. He removed a portrait of an Indian prince from the Foreign Office building because it was "to politically incorrect". No sense of history these socialists.
