He said that President Bashar Assad has shown he cannot take Syria through the process of change and must give up power and is unable to invoke reforms.

Mr Blair stopped short of suggesting Libya-style military intervention in the country but implored the international community to 'do everything it can now to hasten that'.

He said: 'His position is untenable. I was saying even two or three months ago, if he genuinely showed that he was prepared to lead a process of reform, then I would give him the chance to make the evolution work.'

But quote again:

Note the phrase, "then I would give him the chance to make the evolution work."

Break this down even further, "then I would" etc etc.

He doesn't represent anyone anymore. He's speaking from a personal viewpoint.

And bear in mind, the reporter will have asked what HE would do. So 'I' is the natural answer to that.
