Blair ‘said he would stand down’

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Blair ‘said he would stand down’

Right now, very little could make me happier than to find out for sure that this extended speculation, as well as the attacks from the Tories, are as a result of Tony Blair’s misjudged attempts to manipulate the press. It still seems much more likely to me than the speech timing being a coincidence, particularly under Alistair Campbell’s grid system… And I was disgusted to read that Alistair Campbell is being rehired to play a role in the election campaigning. How can anyone vote for such a dirty party? There’s hardly anyone left who hasn’t spent at least some time on the scrap heap.
