I'm attracted by the potential for reckless abuse of power.

Taking Mata's point about the probability of a long-term Conservative government next, I think it could be averted if Gordon Brown (or whoever gets the leadership if it's not him) immediately act to reverse some of Blair's more unpopular decisions, most importantly, pulling out of Iraq. Whether or not this will actually happen depends on Brown's willingness to defy the US, which may be optimistic.

Dave: the next Prime Minister will not be chosen by election, but by a vote of the members of the Labour Party, and it will almost certainly be Gordon Brown, the current Chancellor. This is because Blair is resigning half-way through his term. As the Prime Minister can call a general election whenever he wants to, within his 5 years of office, there will be calls from the opposition parties for this to happen, but this rarely happens.
