Sorry, what??. Tony Blair has suggested Labour under Ed Miliband may risk being too left-wing to win General Election.

Loving Tony Blair's helpful comments about Ed Miliband. Here's hoping the former PM is proved right!
So Tony Blair proclaims that Ed Miliband is too left wing which will make it hard for Labour win. Well for a start anyone who thinks Ed Miliband is left wing obviously lives on a different plant to the one I'm on. And further, isn't this the most nasty, petulant, calculated, jealous timing - he obviously doesn't want his own party to win, does he.(If the ship can't be Blair-ite I'll sink it - sort of thing.) And thirdly, who asked that ghastly evil little warmongering snurd Bush-poodle what he thinks - and who cares?

It's time to come out of the closet on what Princess Diana was really shot for - she didn't just die in a car accident, which may have fatally wounded her, or it may quite not as she was shot to help her on her way finally. We are just about to choose a new Prime Minister, the man with the most beautiful (Elvis) smile, Ed Miliband. And it was because the Princess had begun an affair the night before she left for Paris with none other than Tony Blair about whom she said "You don't know the draw of that man" that the Secret Service demanded of Prince Charles that his ex-wife's time to depart this life had come. The Blairs, Tony and Cherie, were going to have the princess as Tony's muse letting her come - and go - between them. But when Tony Blair was Prime Minister and had to run the country with a planned much-vaunted war against Iraq imminent, the Princess was not going to be allowed to get in the way by other powers that be.

I feared I would inadvertently break David Cameron's heart, support ISIS, a Russian invasion of Scotland, Kim Jong Un, Waitrose prices at Asda, economic meltdown, increased poverty for pensioners, the Ebola virus, a plague of boils & the death of the first born. On balance...even if Project Fear wins. .. it feels so good.

Please make a suggested donation of £3 to help us win the next election, and you (and a friend) will be automatically entered into a draw to be my guests at Labour's annual gala dinner next month. You'll have a chance to chat with Ed Miliband, and then you'll join me at my table for dinner. We want to give this opportunity to supporters from anywhere in the country, so Labour will cover travel to London and a night's accommodation for you and your guest. There will be many great and inspiring Labour supporters, campaigners and politicians there to celebrate — and I hope you'll be there too. Good luck, and I hope to see you on the night. Doreen Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon OBE P.S. You can fill out this form to enter without donating, but we really do need more funds to beat the Tories next year, and even as little as £3 will h ...

How Labour's man in the middle took the axe to his own speech A febrile atmosphere within the two big parties, with Michael Gove and Theresa May unashamedly taking lumps out of each other over alleged Islamic extremism, and Labour types at sixes and sevens over migration. One wing of the party wants Ed Miliband to take the fight to Ukip; the other calls for a more emollient approach so as not to insult or upset former Labour supporters who have been seduced by the Faragian view of things. Miliband's instinct is the latter, and originally there was quite a lot of it in the speech prepared for his recent visit to the Tory/Ukip heartland of Thurrock. But shortly before he rose to speak, Tony Blair piped up calling for Labour to stand up to Ukip, and so, quite separately, did Diane Abbott. Thus the Labour Leader realised his speech would see him clobbered from the Labour right and the Labour left in unholy unprecedented alliance. So he did the brave, strong thing and dropped the passages that would have lande ...
Observer editorial: Ed Miliband would do well to echo Tony Blair's line that immigration has brought much to this country
31, 2014 - Tony Blair & David Cameron Condemn Sudan’s Plan To Hang Christian Woman, Meriam Ibrahim Meriam Ibrahim’s Execution: British PM David Cameron Blasts Sudan For Planning To Hang Christian Mother Of 2 British Prime Minister David Cameron said Saturday he was “appalled” by the “barbaric” death sentence given to a Sudanese woman for apostasy. Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, 27, was condemned on May 15 under Islamic sharia law, which outlaws conversions on pain of death. “I am absolutely appalled by the decision to sentence Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag to death,” Cameron said in a statement. “The way she is being treated is barbaric and has no place in today’s world. Religious freedom is an absolute, fundamental human right,” the Conservative leader said. “I urge the government of Sudan to overturn the sentence and immediately provide appropriate support and medical care for her and her children. The UK will continue to press the government of Sudan to act.” The Christian Sudanese ...
A woman sentenced to death in Sudan after marrying a Christian could be released within days, according to reports. A senior Khartoum official has told the BBC that Meriam Ibrahim will be freed following worldwide protests about her treatment. David Cameron has joined Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Tony Blair in condemning the "barbaric" punishment of the 27-year-old, who gave birth to a daughter this week while shackled in her cell. Ms Ibrahim was raised a Christian by her mother and has refused to renounce the faith. However, a court ruled earlier this month that she is Muslim because that was her father's faith. Her Christian marriage was annulled and she was sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery and death by hanging for renouncing Islam. Advertisement Sex outside a "lawful relationship" is regarded as adultery under Sudanese law.
Political leaders unite to condemn Meriam's death sentence Did you even know that in 2014 a woman in Sudan could be executed for refusing to be a Muslim and marrying a Christian? British political leaders have condemned the death sentence and imprisonment of Meriam Ibrahim for just that. She has had her execution delayed for two years after giving birth to a baby (in shackles) last week. Sudan's Islamic courts ruled Ms Ibrahim is a Muslim because her father was, and therefore found her guilty of apostasy. David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Tony Blair have all weighed in appealing for religious freedom and the release of the woman. A similar campaign is underway in America, as the woman's Christian husband is a US citizen. It has also unlocked a debate in Britain about international aid, with various politicians saying aid should be conditional on human rights. It has been pointed out by others that the aid does not, on the whole, go to the Sudanese government but to aid agencies operating in the country, so t ...

EU, BRUTE? May 29, 2014 • 10:17AM The knives are out in London, the heart of the British, or more correctly Brutish Empire. As the aftershocks from the election earthquake—set off by the anti-Euro right-wing UKIP party victory in the European Parliament elections on Sunday —rock the mainstream parties. Lest the impact of the election encourage Labour Party Leaders to change course, the miserable little Queen's hitman & War Criminal, Tony Blair, attacked the UKIP as a threat to British interests in a Monday interview with BBC, and instructed Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband that the party must not deviate from the imperial EU course. Typically thuggish, Blair stated:"the rationale for Europe today is probably stronger than it's ever been... the rationale for Europe today is power." War has broken out within the ranks of the Liberal Democratic party after it came in fifth in the elections, with its presence in the European Parliament reduced from 11 to one. If party leader Nick Clegg goes down, so coul ...

Comedian Matt Forde looked at the relevance of personality and charisma to the voters over the re-election and political careers of Tony Blair and Boris Johnson. He also spoke about the voices of Ed Miliband and William Hague, and the images that they project. Journalist and author Peter Hitchens said the magic of Mr Blair was that he was "so vacuous", and how David Cameron's attempts to be a "second Tony Blair had not worked". And he claimed comedy fed a "childish attitude towards politicians".
Tony Blair was a former Ml5 agent/spy. I love the internet. Should the nation be surprised? and now the Peace Envoy. He could be in Chad/Cameroon or Nigeria having a whisky with Goodluck President.

Pantomime politicians reminds me of the PIE piper, just waiting for who played Prince Charming. Plenty of them about roaming the streets.
David Cameron has waded into the increasingly acrimonious battle over the publication of the report into the war on Iraq according to the Mail. The report by Sir John Chilcot has suffered multiple delays to its publication, and there are rumours Tony Blair is responsible. The central allegation against Blair is that he is deliberately delaying the report until after the General Election to give Ed Miliband the maximum chance of winning. The official reason for the delay is that there is some debate about which confidential intelligence papers can be released. Breitbart London understands that legal teams …read more Source: Breitbart

So, I've done my own version of a Left-Right scale of Labour Leaders since WWII, numbered 1-10, where 1 is Michael Foot and 10 is Margaret Thatcher.

A former Labour health minister has said people should have to pay £10 a month to use the NHS in a major report on the future of the health service. Lord Warner, a minister under Tony Blair, said “our much-beloved, 65-year-old NHS no longer meets the country’s needs” and described it as “outdated, cosseted and unaffordable”. National Health Action – a political party created to oppose any privatisation of the NHS – predicted that such a fee would be as unpopular as the poll tax because the poor would pay the same as the rich. LETS HOPE ED MILIBAND AINT LISTENING TO THIS *** .. who will be exempt ? pensioners , the disabled ,the unemployed, those in receipt of working tax credits/housing benefit/ council tax benefit , war widows , war disabled , children , carers the list is endless the cost to collect this cash will be higher then the monies raised ... just put income tax up by 1p .

Tony Blair and Ed Miliband "paying tribute "to Tony Benn is a bit like asking Robbie Savage for his opinion on Pele
Right now, the bottom line on UK politics for me is this: Can Ed Miliband overcome his perceived deficiencies in the mind of the not-particularly-politically engaged voter and reassure them that Labour is a reasonably safe vote. The alternative is the almost unthinkable prospect of another term of Tory vandalism which has combined the worst aspects of Thatcher's ideological fascism with a soviet style manipulation of the media. (yes, started by Tony Blair, before you ask). If Miliband can do this, then we can start scrutinising his own performance.
is very much of a mind to advocate that Ed Miliband ought to be taken gently by the throat and ushered into the Room of Mirrors for a long hard look at himself (and possibly a dry slap). Up to this point, he's been cautiously optimistic about some of the noises the lad has been making; his firm(ish) rhetoric about the Energy Companies, his refusal to leap witlessly into military action in Syria, and his apparent commitment to scrapping the Bedroom Tax have ticked a lot of boxes. Perhaps it would be going too far to call him "The Great Hope" for whatever tattered ruins of the Left remains in mainstream British politics - but one can say with some conviction that he's definitely better than Tony Blair (though that's faint praise, to be honest; one could say much the same about the headless corpse of a cat sodomised by Satanists). His apparent reluctance to call for an "In/Out" referendum on EU membership is a mammoth, steaming political balls-up of weapons-grade magnitude, though; it will do nothing but ...

Trade unions - time to break Labour link is now! Is this the end for the unions and Labour? In response to the Collins Review proposals to 'reform' the link between the unions and Labour, Mirror columnist Kevin Maguire declared: "It is time for the trade unions to march proudly out of Labour's front door instead of being slowly bundled out of the back" (3/2/14). Labour Leader Ed Miliband has said that the Collins Review proposals "complete unfinished business of the last 20 years". They are both right. The process of undermining the voice of the trade unions within Labour began 20 years ago, under John Smith's leadership, and was accelerated under Tony Blair. Today, before the Collins Review, "unions have less influence over selection [of candidates] than they have had in 100 years", as Tom Watson MP put it (Guardian, 16/8/13). However, if implemented, the Collins Review will mean the destruction of the last remnants of the trade unions' organised presence within the Labour Party. Far from letting "people ...

Woolwich Massacre Trial: I Am A ‘Soldier of Allah’ – Michael Adebolajo A man accused of killing a British soldier on a London street told police he was a "soldier of Allah" fighting a war against Britain but that the killing brought him little joy, a court heard on December 4, 2013, Wednesday. Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, are on trial for the brutal murder of Lee Rigby near his barracks in the south London district of Woolwich in May 2013. In recordings of the interviews shown to the jury at the Old Bailey criminal court in London, Adebolajo blamed his actions on "wicked" leaders such as Prime Minister David Cameron and his predecessor Tony Blair. Asked by detectives to describe the killing, during which the two men allegedly hit Rigby with a car before attacking him with knives, Adebolajo said the soldier's head was "almost detached and may Allah forgive me if I acted in a way that is displeasing to him". In another interview, during which he had a blue blanket over his head, A ...
Will Friends please read this post, and my subsequent post. Both David Cameron and Ed Miliband have been provided by me with incontrovertible evidence that Tony Blair misled Parliament on 24 September 2002 and 18 March 2003. On 21 November 2013 I delivered information to the current Attorney General that showed Blair did not comply (as the First Defendant) with his "duty of candour" in Judicial Review proceedings (concerning UNSCR 1441); judgment of which was handed down by the High Court on 17 December 2002. Blair's "failure" led the Court to believe that the then Government was acting in good faith - specifically in respect of the statement made by Blair on 24/9/02 which I have proved was untrue. If the facts had been disclosed for those proceedings, as they should have been, this country would not have participated in the invasion of Iraq. Blair knew when he gave the "order" (his word) to the Chief of the Defence Staff for HM Armed Forces to engage in war he had already acted unlawfully and that, in gi ...
"One of the first things I tried to do when I became leader of this party, is understand where we got things wrong in government, and change them. And one of the things that we didn't get right was immigration. And that's why I've got a new approach. Millions of people in this country are concerned about it, and if they're concerned about it, the Labour Party that I lead is going to be talking about it." -Ed Miliband. It's good to see Ed not dodging the immigrations question, unlike Tony Blair or Gordon Brown.
THE WEEK IN POLITICS (I'm going to re-publish this each Friday from Politics.co.uk as I believe it to be a fair and even look at the week in politics…and easy reading. …Tony.) It was a tough week for Ed Miliband. He was facing questions about his relationship with former Labour councillor and Co-Op boss Paul Flowers throughout. He received an absolute hammering at PMQs. And he was trying to play down reports that his relationship with Ed Balls is nearly as bad as that between Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. And indeed that was how much of the press reported it. But while the bluster over the Co-Op rumbled on, the Tories were displaying all the usual problems which are putting the party in such a precarious position. The week started with Boris Johnson blithely writing in the Telegraph that the rich were an oppressed minority, like homeless people, and deserved a little care and affection. Johnson's columns for the newspaper reveal the tension between his journalist side – always wanting to ruffle feat ...

Some of you may think i enjoy attacking the Labour Party, well for your information every attack i make hurts me as well as those who believe in its principals. Labour once had leaders who would fight tooth and nail for those who are vlnerable, now all they do is appease Middle England. Ed Miliband may be seen to be changing the party, but unless he encompasses the ideals of the past Labour will never change that sadly breaks my heart. Ed Miliband has been guided by Tony Blair, i cant forget the picture of the both of them with broad smiles at the Emirates home of my team Arsenal. That picture spoke volumes about the relationship between the two, a relationship that is still as strong today as i always was, how else can you explain his blatant refusal to have Blair tried for war crimes.

Niel Kinnock, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Ed Miliband hold your heads in total shame, for it was you traitors who have wrecked the Labour Party. Neil Kinnock started it off by calling us left wingers trouble makers, you know Militant Tendency those of us who clung to the ideals of the Labour Party. I will never forgive you for your chest beating speech, you know the one where you condemned us so viciously well mate that hurt , neither will the vast amount of hard working party members who gave their souls for the party. Rather than trying to unite the party, that snake in the grass Tony Blair distanced himself even further from those of us who believed in the original ideals of the party. His treason was once in office he had the ideal opportunity to reverse all the Trades Union reforms, yet what did he do yes absolutely nothing, well what did you expect from someone so deep inside the *** of Rupert Murdoch he could see daylight out of Murdoch's mouth. If that was not bad enough he further distanced him ...

The last Labour government encouraged mass immigration "to rub the Right's nose in diversity" according to Tony Blair's adviser Andrew Neather. They also calculated it would boost the number of Labour voters. The scale of migration has been so great that irreversible changes have been made to large areas of the country. Ethnic division is a reality and the problem is getting worse, with 29 million Romanians and Bulgarians potentially to add to the mix next year. Although much of the blame lies with Labour ministers, including Ed Miliband, the Tories are no better. What could David Cameron have been thinking when he said last week that he wants to expand the EU as far as Kazakhstan and the Urals? He must be off his head. If you liked opening our borders to every Romanian and Bulgarian you'll just love the Kazakhs, Moldavians and Azerbaijanis. Not to mention 75 million Turks, whose application to join the EU he also enthusiastically supports.

You watch Ed Miliband on PMQ's then watch Tony Blair on Sky on Adam Boulton and u think - why oh why have we got Ed. Oh yeah the Unions.
Ed Miliband's Fabian Society speech attacks the divisive effects of Conservatives in coalition & policies, but his One Nation responses are lightweight and ineffective. The Labour Party Leader must know that so-called one-nationism has never been a battle cry of his party. Ever since Tory Benjamin Disraeli coined the phrase, it has been appropriated by Stanley Baldwin, Winston Churchill, Anthony Eden, Ted Heath and Boris Johnson to encapsulate concepts of national unity and voluntary efforts to help the poor. Needless to say, Tony Blair had no difficulty in hijacking the term for his administration that accelerated the gap between rich and poor through a freeze on direct taxation of the wealthy. There is a sharp division in Britain between haves and have-nots, encouraged by the pro-rich policies of successive governments, and it will require specific government action to redress a gulf of Victorian-era dimensions. Miliband's remarks about New Labour failure to do enough for ordinary people will be meanin ...
If Michael Foot (Old Lab), was 'thesis', Tony Blair (New Lab) 'antithesis' - how precisely is Ed Miliband defining 'synthesis' ?
FORMER UK Prime Minister BLAIR CRITICISES SUCCESSOR ON IMMIGRATION Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the UK between 1997 and 2007, made a rare visit to the UK parliament at Westminster on Tuesday 18th December 2012 and walked into, or perhaps created, a row about immigration. Mr Blair attended a lunch at Westminster where he spoke and answered journalists' questions. Mr Blair's lunch was held just one day after new Labour Leader Ed Miliband appeared to distance himself from the Labour governments of Mr Blair and Gordon Brown on immigration policy. Mr Miliband gave a speech on Monday in south London in which he said that a Labour government with Mr Miliband as leader would introduce measures to help people deal with the effects of immigration. Among the measures proposed was a plan to bar immigrants with poor English from working in public sector jobs where they would be required to speak to the public. Other proposals included a crackdown on 'criminal landlords so they cannot exploit people in over-crowded, s ...

In a thinly-veiled warning to party chief Ed Miliband over Labour's position on immigration, ex-British Prime Minister Tony Blair has asked the leader of the Opposition not make migrants a "scapegoat" for problems in Britain. In a highly unusual intervention into British politics, the former prime ...
Tony Blair has defended his immigration policies warning that people who come to Britain have played a positive role and they should not be made a “scapegoat for our problems”. The former Prime Minister suggested that the debate over immigration should be “handled with care” as he indicated it could descend into racism and nationalism. He insisted that he was not “out of touch” with the concerns of ordinary Britons and said, “the Polish community contributes a lot to this country”. In a rare address to journalists in Parliament, Mr Blair delivered the warning just days after Ed Miliband, the Labour Leader, claimed that his party had previously done “too little” to address the impacts of mass immigration. However, the former Prime Minister declined to apologise for his policies and launched a staunch defence of the benefits of immigration. “Of course it has to be controlled, and illegal immigration has to be tackled head on. It's important that we do that,” he said. “But overall I ...

These US debates are something to endure not savour. Stuffy, tense, skethy on facts. Its as if everyone is under police patrol. They shd take a leaf from Britain's Prime Minister's Questions where the Prime Minister and Leader of Opposition face off in the House of Commons every week with facts, memorable quotes, live quotations, pure intelligence, solid figures, sheer energy, raw humour and a little bit of love. No holds barred. David Cameron vs. Ed Miliband is on this morning. Tony Blair vs. David Cameron must have been glorious. PMQs: A great contribution to political civilisation.
Smarter doesn't mean better. Ed Miliband (UK Labour Party Leader) is smarter than Tony Blair.

Thatcher hasn't been able to harm the left for decades. But her acolytes can. And do. Tony Blair supports her. Ed Miliband supports him.
Heaven help us all! The news that Ed Miliband is seeking advice and help from Tony Blair is both appalling and disconcerting. There is not a single redeeming feature from the Blair years of New Labour, the most disastrous time in British politics. Apart from anything else, this move demonstrates a total lack of imagination or talent amongst the current Labour crowd. But then I suppose they have had no foundation on which to build.

Return Of The War Criminal Tony Blair Having devastated millions of lives as co-conspirator in the illegal and immoral Iraq war - and then having raked in millions of pounds through business contacts made during his time as Prime Minister - War Criminal Tony Blair is apparently trying to edge his way back into British politics. According to the London Guardian, Blair - supposedly retired from frontline politics - is to act as an adviser to the Labour Party and will be "contributing ideas and experience to Ed Miliband's policy review". Miliband, the current Labour Leader, revealed that Blair will be giving advice on the 'Olympic legacy' - and in a sickening display of sycophancy, praised the warmonger and thanked him for what he had done for the Labour Party and Britain. Unless you're Ed Miliband, it's difficult to ignore the fact that one of the main things Blair has done for Britain is to cause the country to become widely reviled in the Muslim world. Figures vary, but the Iraq war - illegally launched o ...
Ed Miliband has shown his strength. His praise of Tony Blair's premiership is totally right. The Blair years were winning years for Labour.
At Labour’s big fundraiser last night, Tony Blair told guests: “There is a rulebook in politics that goes something like this: Labour governs. Labour loses. Tories take over. Labour goes crazy. Tories carry on governing. Time to re-write that script. Actually it is being re-written by them and by us...
The return of Tony Blair as an advisor on the Olympic Legacy will cause problems for both the PM and Ed Miliband. Perhaps the Book of Revelation is finally coming true ... For the PM it will cause problems because it will become clear just how similar the two men are in both personality and in their politics. Blair never had any time for the Labour Party and the PM clearly has little if any time for the Tory Party. Blair centralised power away from CLPs. The PM is doing the same with local Tory Associations. I could go on ... More worrying is their approach to politics. Blair was the ultimate pragmatist (apart from on overseas wars and George Bush) and was obsessed by tomorrow's headlines. He wasted most of his first-term (when he could literally have changed the world) because he focus grouped everything. As we have seen since the Budget the PM has no appetite for facing down his critics and we have U-turns on an almost daily basis. The killer for the PM is that Tony Blair is actually the more skilled po ...
