“To do this just days away from crucial local elections and five weeks out from a general election is totally unacceptable. Anything else would be a betrayal and let down the millions of people who need Labour back in power to save our NHS, our schools and our future.
So Tony. Stop complaining and start campaigning. For Labour. Not against it.”
Tony Blair’s former hatchet man, right hand man & former Deputy Prime Minister, John Prescott, has made a not too veiled threat that the former Prime Minister might be expelled from the Labour Party for his increasingly erratic antics. Prescott has firmly reminded the former Prime Minister of The Labour Party rules with regards to supporting other parties, as well as admonishing him on his betrayal of current Labour candidates.
They say people get more conservative with age, and in Tony Blair’s case that seems to be true. Not content with talking, walking and acting like a Tory, in his messianic quest to continue to be relevant, Tony Blair is now asking people to vote Tory to stop Brexit – despite the fact Theresa May is having a General Election so that she can have Brexit with no scrutiny.
One thing is certain – tired old Tony is passed it. As former Deputy Prime Minister Prescott said:
“BLAIR’S LIKE A FADED STRIKER SHOUTING FROM THE SIDELINES AS A SPECTATOR, DESPERATE TO GET ON THE PITCH TO SCORE A GOAL AND HEAR THE ROAR OF THE CROWDS. I CAN’T SEE WHAT HE IS DOING IS ANY DIFFERENT, SO CAN I TELL LABOUR GRANDEES LIKE BLAIR, [PETER] MANDELSON AND [ROY] HATTERSLEY TO SHUT UP AND GET BEHIND US.”
If someone is in a seat where the Liberals are the main challenger to the Labour Party, for the sake of keeping the Tories out, a Red might vote against the Tories. But traditionally under no circumstances could any Labour supporter ever vote for the tories. The Labour Party is divided on many things, but not that. The very suggestion is an outrage.
With his latest outburst it’s official, his critics were right on at least one of two counts. Either Blair genuinely supports the Tories, or Tony is absolutely insane.
By the rules used against the membership in last summers leadership election, he should be suspended from The Labour Party.
“On 9 June, we will either have a Labour government or a Tory one. If you want Brexit to be used to turn Britain into a low-wage tax haven, vote Tory. If you want a Britain for the many not the few after Brexit, vote Labour. The choice is clear.”
