I've always blamed Blair.

Not for the crash itself but for not implementing the checks and balances they talked about doing, eg separating clearing from gambling part of banks.

Blair was too worried about nanny state accusations and upsetting the vested interests in the Murdoch and other elite press that mostly supported (tolerated) a centre right labour government.
