A key theme of this speech was the forthcoming general election. With this in mind, Blair attacked the record of the Major government and outlined ten pledges that a Labour government would fulfil in its first term in office.

These pledges included increased spending on education, the reduction of youth and long-term unemployment, more spending on patient care in the NHS, and the construction of a new relationship with Europe.

Following the Dunblane massacre on 13 March, in which a gunman killed 16 children and their teacher at a primary school, Blair pledged to outlaw the private ownership of handguns.

Applause It is exciting! But it is also a great responsibility. We owe a debt of inspiration to John Smith, and a debt of honour to Neil Kinnock.

Applause I did not begin new Labour; Neil did. I intend to repay them both in full. All I ask is the chance to serve. And at the time of the next election there will be just one thousand days until the new millennium, a thousand days to prepare for a thousand years.

We live in an era of extraordinary, revolutionary change at work, at home, through technology, through the million marvels of modern science. The possibilities are exciting. But its challenge is clear. How do we create in Britain a new age of achievement in which all of the people - not just a few but all of the people - can share?

For all the people or for a few? That is the difference between us and the Conservative Party that governs Britain today. That is the choice before us. That is the challenge of the 21st century. I want to lead Britain into this age of achievement, and today I want to set before you how.

But first we should welcome all the representatives, the ambassadors from round the world. I would want to welcome in particular at this time the Israeli Ambassador and the representative of the Palestinian people.

Applause You are here together and you have our prayers that the tears and the bloodshed of the past few days can once again be ended and peace restored.

Here, too, are those from all the communities in Northern Ireland. I would like to say this personally to the people there. With the Irish government, with the parties in Northern Ireland, I can assure you it will be every much a priority for me as for John Major.

All the force and energy I have will be bent towards it. We have been responsible in our actions over the peace process from the outset; we will continue to be so now. Applause I say this to Sinn Fein and, after events of the last 24 hours, to Loyalist groups as well.

You have your chance to take the path of peace. It is your duty to take it as members of the human race. Honour it and you shall play your part.

Fail in that duty and I swear to you, the search for justice and reconciliation will carry on without you. The choice is yours. Applause My friends, I would like, too, to give apologies for one absentee today. For reasons everyone will understand she cannot be with us. Let us hope to invite her here next year, a free citizen and an example to democrats everywhere.The place for everything in Oprah's world.

GETTING STARTED ON YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY. Most of wedding media focuses on the pretty details, and the things you can spend piles of money on. But the actual wedding isn’t the first dance, or the cute photobooth, or even the emotional first dance.

Manifesto of the Communist Party. A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of communism. All the powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Pope and Tsar, Metternich and Guizot, French Radicals and German police-spies.
