Tony Blair is one of the most influential statesman in the world and during his time as British prime minister, he helped bring both prosperity and division to his country.

Blair, who was prime minister from 1997 to 2007, helped bring the Labour party back into power after nearly two decades in the political wilderness.
Many Brits may remember Blair for bringing prosperity to their country, but many others will remember him for his decision to send British troops to war in Iraq.
Since Blair left office, the 57-year-old has been keeping busy with a number of important initiatives, including acting as an envoy for the Middle East and consulting for a number of private firms.
Today, as part of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, Blair is working closely with a new project called "Faith Shorts 2010."
The global film competition is an opportunity for young people to express their faith through film - whether it be Christianity, Hinduism or Islam.
The top 50 filmmakers were given camera equipment to showcase religion and the way they believe it breaks down barriers.
"By gaining insights into the lives of young people across the world, this competition has the potential to build bridges across cultural and religious divides," Blair said.
"I hope this competition will provide a platform for creative and talented young people and an opportunity for filmmakers to see their work promoted on the global stage."
