He consistently refused to answer questions about the loans-for-peerages row and again refused to put a timetable for his departure.   He did, however, confirm that he intended to still be Prime Minister at the time of next summer’s G8 summit:

"JON SOPEL: So we come back to the G8 next year, you’ll still be there as Prime Minister?

TONY BLAIR: I’ve made it clear all the way through, I carry on doing the job and so I look forward to next year’s G8 of course, but er, in the end the most important thing is to do the job."
