If Blair Returned..... Shock horror!

Guardian reports today indicate that if Blair (T) were to return as leader then the Labour Party would lose support. Presumably the next headline will be that the Pope is a Catholic or that bears treat the woods as toilet facilities.

Only the most right wing of Labour supporters could believe that the war monger has anything to offer. His blind allegiance to Bush cost Labour the last election. And his neo liberal economic philosophy has no place in a world where only the alternative economic strategy offers a hope of escaping from a world of increasing inequality and unemployment.

Progress supporters are allowed to dream but not to drag the Labour Party back up an alley toward electoral destruction. Times have changed and even the Labour right need to realise that.
