Blair on MTV

Not really, but he does mention it. It's actually a speech calling for expanded free trade under the Doha round of the WTO. But it does include this great passage:
Occasionally we debate globalisation as if it were something imposed by governments or business on unwilling people. Wrong. It is the individual decisions of millions of people that is creating and driving globalisation. Globalisation isn't something done to us. It is something we are, consciously or unconsciously doing to and for ourselves.
Tom Friedman couldn't have said it better himself.
