Tony Blair's standing ovation

Unique applause at Blair's last PMQs.
Tony Blair received an unprecedented ovation at the end of his final prime ministers questions today.
It was the first time in living memory that politicians and commentators alike could remember any member - including a sitting prime minister - receiving a round of applause. Clapping is normally verboten in the chamber.
In a largely non-adversarial 30 minute session, Blair finished by paying tribute to the "noble work" of his fellow politicians on all sides of the house.

Although he acknowledged he was never "a great House of Commons man", he said that he could pay the House the greatest tributes by saying "that from first to last I never stopped fearing it".
