Blair warns Miliband

with 6 comments


“Can you tell the difference between Stork and butter?”

“Tony Blair warns Miliband’s Labour over move to left- BBC News”

“Mr Blair’s article was seized on by the Conservative Party, with chairman Grant Shapps saying the former PM was right to warn that “Labour aren’t a credible party of government under Ed Miliband”.” That, alone should warn Labour to ignore, nay do the opposite of Blair’s recommendations.

Thatcher in an interview, when asked what she thought was her greatest achievement said “New Labour”. That alone should tell us that Old Labour were right for the workers, the poor, the disabled and otherwise disenfranchised population.

To be honest, I don’t think there’s an ounce of difference between Blair and Miliband; puts me in mind of the old Stork margarine advertisement- “Can you tell the difference between Stork and butter?” Well, yes; one’s a cheap, rather tasteless substitute for a rather more expensive option that’s really doing the same job.

At the risk of becoming boring, I’ll say again it is my opinion that Blair, and many of his Blairite co-conspirators were planted into the Labour party to make this change, to ensure no ‘People’s Party’ would remove the protections and advantages handed to the wealthy and powerful at the expense of the poor. This is exactly what we are seeing- no effective opposition, a one party state of capitalists.

Now, with Blair’s attempt to become high profile in British politics again (has the world stage booed him off?) I fear he may make be manoeuvring for leadership, or at least a high profile position in the Labour Party again.
