Tony Blair an ID supporter?

On the occasion that the above right honourable gentleman may next be found here would he mind leaving a comment about the above subject... I just happened to read in the New York Times (you have to log in) that he was an ID fan:

"President George W. Bush, a vocal Christian, has stated he believes that intelligent design should be taught in classrooms alongside evolution, as has British Prime Minister Tony Blair."
The report was from Reuters but I certainly was not aware of whether you were keen or not... I might even consider giving you space to do a guest post!

If anyone knows the Reuters source I would be very grateful to have it.

I can't find a source claiming that Blair has called for including ID in science classes. I think this may have originated in Prime Minsiter's Questions a few years ago when Blair was asked whether he thought that charter schools teaching creationism (such as the one in Gateshead, I believe) were OK. Blair seemed to be caught unprepared - presumably because he hadn't been briefed on this beforehand - and mumbled something about what mattered were the exam results.

Whether or not Tony Blair supports ID does not change the fact that there is, as of yet, no scientific theory of ID to be taught.
