It only took one speech

tony-blair-caricature

It only took one speech and the whole British political world suddenly fell apart.   It didn’t matter that the speech was, to say the least, out of step with the current political temperature it was the underlying message that really got an awful lot of politicians worried.   I’m back.

Nothing scares the political class more than a proven winner re – entering the political fray.   Nobody who is active in today’s House of Commons has got anything like Tony Blair’s winning record and they know it.  Three general elections three landslides.   A big shark  is swimming in amongst the minnows.

“IS THIS THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN BRITAIN?” the Sun headline screamed in 1998…I suspect there are many politicians today are thinking just that.   You could almost hear Hello, Hello, I’m Back Again playing in the background.   I’m sure he must be thinking if Trump can do it why not me?  Just when you thought things couldn’t get any crazier.
