It's clearly over for Tony Blair

Today’s Guardian crossword puzzle, 11 across: “Top man, by not retiring, starts to lack authority, increasing resentment” (4, 5).

For those not accustomed to English cryptic crosswords, here’s how the answer works. Look at “by not” backwards (retiring) and you get Tony B. Then take the first letters (starts to) of “lack”, “authority”, “increasing” and “resentment”. I know, it looks easy once someone has told you how.
