    Fabian and Jesuit Tony Blair wants to 're-engage' with British politics.

    A spokesman for Miliband said: "Tony Blair is a very big, successful Labour figure who won three general elections. He talks to Ed regularly and we would be delighted to see him re-engaging in British politics."

    For what?

    The Iraq war?

    Do remember the HOC unanimously voted for them to invade; it wasn't his decision alone.

    And yet the current Labourites have been trying so hard to distance themselves from him and any association with him. Especially Ed Milliband and Ed Balls.

    That's as may be, but can you honestly call him a true socialist? In my opinion, he gives socialism a bad name and the fact that he continues to tie himself to it makes me want to castrate him with a meat cleaver.

    Tony Blair was a lot more likeable better than Cameron. I'd swap for Blair any day.

    Who ever voted for Ed Milliband to be the leader needs their heads checking. His brother would have been a much better choice for Labour. They deserve to not win the next election due to their own stupidity.

    Hindsight ftw :rolleyes:.

    The politicians who you vote for, who were in the HOC at the time of the war, are equally responsible; they could've abstained.

    Agreed.

    Socialism gives itself a bad name. Mainly because it is a broken ideology.

    Blair inherited an economy that was booming during a time that a new industry (the internet) was blooming. He then stripped away our civil liberties and was implicit in providing false evidence to the HoC which led to us being involved in a war that the majority of the international community told us to stay out of.

    Cameron has inherited an economy with an enormous budget deficit, a banking system rotten to the core (admittedly he isn't going to change that), a struggling housing market (in part the fault of Blair whose government's policies encouraged the speculative buying of property) in a world economy that's going down the ****ter. Cameron is far from perfect but to say Blair would be doing any better is ludicrous.

    I agree (but this swaying away from the point I made originally).

    I agree, Ed is a right twonk.

    David would have some real credibility (in the eyes of the public), Ed looks like a joker.
