It was hardly suprising that Tony Blair's valediction was full of boasts - nine years of achievement in government.
Just a few examples:
"We have had the longest period of sustained growth in British History."
"We should get a few facts straight. Crime has fallen not risen. We are the only Government since the war to do it."
"Mortgage repossession, like mass unemployment, are terms we have to be reminded of."
"Ten years ago energy wasn't on the agenda. The environment an also-ran."
"In 1997, we faced daunting challenges…social division, with millions living in poverty, including over 3 million children."
But how many of these claims check out? We've fact checked Blair's speech... so you don't have to.
