Blair's Public warnings to Miliband

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet. Perhaps the left are hoping Thatcher's death is a "good day to bury bad news"? :)

 

Anyway, Blair has been quite outspoken at the way Miliband is leading the party. He's been out of the Labour spotlight for a while, so it seems odd he's taken this step.

Ed Miliband hits back at criticism from Tony Blair

Although he's done this before, in 2011:

 

Brown wasted my New Labour legacy: Blair savages successor for losing centre ground

 

And he warned the party’s current leader, Ed Miliband, not to allow Labour to retreat into its traditional Left-wing comfort zone.

Lol! Actually you won't see a post from me on the RIP Thatcher thread because she didn't directly affect me. I had no interest in her or her party while they were in power, so I have no opinion to give on her life or death.

 

So once again, you're completely wrong!

 

But will you do more name calling or scuttle away and hide until the thread disappears off the first page, or actually discuss the point I raised?

 

Incidentally, what's "preformance"?

Give the guy a break. He was positive that once thatcher died the spell would be lifted, all the pits would reopen and we could go back to socialism. Remember, in his world everything labour do is good and everything conservatives do is evil.

 

It's all very black and white (well red and blue). It must be very comforting.

I really wouldn't take any notice of what Blair says because this is the man who said " God" told him to start a war in the Gulf .

But that's OK because it was a white god but not OBL whose brown god told him to bomb people too.

More "left" "right" twaddle.

 

The likes of Campbell talk about a party needing to hold the center ground to win, but are people views changing, and is Tony Blair keeping up?

We have the Greens, very much to the laft, gaining their first MP. So a move towards more socialist type policies might be the right move.

There's a crucial distinction to be made between Green left and Labour "left".

 

The Greens place less emphasis on the state and more on decentralised, local institutions. It's a more libertarian type of "left wing".

 

See: http://www.politicalcompass.org/ukparties2010

 

Labour are anything but center outside the linear political spectrum (which is inadequate).
