Blair talks with Schwarzenegger
"Tony Blair has begun his last full day as British prime minister with a visit from California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger at Downing Street.
Mr Blair, who will resign after prime minister's questions at lunchtime on Wednesday, discussed environmental issues with the former film-star.
The two politicians agreed a deal last year to commit California and the UK to developing low-carbon economies.
Mr Schwarzenegger and Mr Blair will also visit a school...
At a joint press conference, Mr Schwarzenegger said it was crucial to show leadership is getting other countries to commit to lowering carbon emissions, particularly as the US has 5% of the world's population with 25% of greenhouse gas emissions.
On a personal note, Mr Schwarzenegger thanked Mr Blair for his "great leadership and great friendship".
Austrian-born Mr Schwarzenegger - a former Mr Universe and the star of films such as The Terminator and Total Recall - has been Californian governor since 2003.
He is expected to be the last foreign official to visit Mr Blair in Downing Street."
