Only on 5: Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair visits South Florida

Discusses world affairs, leadership

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and founder of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, discussed world affairs and leadership at the inaugural World Leaders Conference in West Palm Beach on Wednesday.

Blair, who in recent years has led peace efforts as the Quartet Representative to the Middle East, addressed an audience of nearly 400 at DeSantis Family Chapel on the campus of Palm Beach Atlantic University.

The sold-out conference, according to organizers, set out to "change hearts and engage minds."

NewsChannel 5 was the only television station cleared by Scotland Yard to record Blair's appearance at the conference.

Scotland Yard did not allow NewsChannel 5 to broadcast the audio of Blair's address.
