Labour usurper Tony Blair gets schooled on what the party REALLY stands for

Tight-lipped: Tony Blair probably wishes he’d been like this during his Nick Robinson interview.

If he had any sense, Tony Blair would be wishing he had kept his mouth shut.

The right-wing former Labour leader took part in a radio interview with former Young Conservatives chairman Nick Robinson in which he moaned about the current direction of Labour.

His question: “Can it be taken back?” is nonsense.

The fact is, the Labour Party has been retaken after Blair turned it away from its socialist background and forced its members to put up with an elitist, centrally-led hierarchy in which our wishes were steamrolled and leader-approved yes-people were parachuted into safe seats, to provide a cushy livelihood for the favourites, no matter what the rest of us may have been suffering.

The backlash was immediate, and severe:

Current Labour backbencher Chris Williamson told the BBC about the current Labour Party in no uncertain terms:

Reporter Paul Mason took a stronger line:

And Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had this to say:

Others, including high-profile figures, were far less compromising:

The fact is that Blair’s politics was regressive, not progressive.

I’m giving the last word to Evolve Politics, who provided the following perceptive analysis of Mr Blair’s mistake:

    Blair has the exact blind spot as May. They can not ( or refuse to ) accept that the electorate are holding them account for their “anti-people” policies. It is an affliction commonly known as Humus which blocks any criticism from their mind.

    I voted Green for many years because of Blair & Mandelson. I now support Labour again because of Corbyn & McDonnel.

    “If he had any sense, Tony Blair would be wishing he had kept his mouth shut.” If he had any sense he’d KEEP his mouth shut! Why doesn’t he just be quiet? Be quiet and go away, Mr. Blair! You’re not in the job, any longer. We don’t want to hear from you! Why should we be subjected to your opinions ad infinitum? What makes your opinions any more valid than mine? You have said absolutely NOTHING constructive, since Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of OUR Party, not yours! If you have nothing good to say, say nothing!

    I think the more war criminal blair prattles on the way he is, it will cause the leadership to get larger!!! So come on blair give it some welly!!

    Socialist I might be but I never cast a single vote for Blair and Co. I used to have to vote Lib Dem to try and keep the Torys out: it worked for a while but it’s not an option now. I vote Labour now to get Corbyn, McDonnell and their Team into Government. Because of who they are and what they stand for! The poisonous media lies, the vicious jibes and anti-semitic slurs all help to keep me focused!
