Tony Blair
Former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Executive Chairman of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change

"He was a giant of European as well as German politics, a true statesman and someone who combined practical politics with genuine vision. Our time in office only coincided for a short time but I found him a source of wisdom and partnership. And he had a real affection for Britain. He will be remembered with gratitude by many all over Europe."
