Progressive parties win when they're at the cutting edge of the future, when they're modernisers." Blair wants to be EU President
And whose protégé was Ed Miliband, Tony? Might the younger son of the same bloke have been Gordon's chosen heir? And wasn't it you who began booting the old school Labour folk into deep space as soon as you became leader?
'The gene pool... is frighteningly limited' nowadays, Tony, because of the 'changes' imposed by you and Gordon Brown.
"The rationale for Europe today is about power, not peace."Just the same as it was back in 1973 when we joined then. He added:
"People want government that works, that is above all effective in making change. To achieve this, governments have to… embrace new ways of thinking… Progressive parties win when they're at the cutting edge of the future, when they're modernisers."Anyone other than a died-in-the-wool Blairite agree with this?
I thought most British folk hankered after the olden days. You know, back when things hadn’t been modernised out of all recognition? Back when Iraq hadn’t been invaded, we weren’t in the EU and the Blair/Brown combo wasn’t a thousand light years up the behinds of cooperate fat cats and hedge fund managers. Back when the immigrant hordes were elsewhere on the planet and Britain still belonged to the British.
Oh no, Tony, most of us long for thetime when the Labour Party represented the British working man and the fat cat, the wallet-stuffing banker, the aggressive, self-serving foreigner and Big Brother were the enemies. As for the 'government that works' thing, wouldn’t most of us want a government that worked on our behalf instead of theirs?
We don’t like change. We particularly dislike change for the worse. But this Prime Minister was never afraid of inverting the truth. It is Blair, after all, who will forever be associated with 'spin' and the lies of Tony B Liar.
