Several times recently I’ve come across suggestions that we may once again see Tony Blair and, more recently David Cameron on the political stage.
You’d think Blair is irredeemable – I did until recently – but his interviews with the likes of Nick Robinson have made me miss politicians with a shred of evidence of thought and belief in something. Now, clearly there is a problem here – many will never forgive him for Iraq. I am of that group. However if it doesn’t matter that the Labour leader mourns the death of the terrorist who masterminded the Munich terror attack, perhaps the man who launched a (just about) legally prosecuted war has a way back. I wouldn’t put money on it but I sense he’s gaining a little toehold in something. Given the choice between whatever nutter runs the Tories and Jeremy Corbyn, well, I’d have to think. Then vote Lib Dem, but we have our own problems. Hmmm.
Cameron I can only see returning due to inconceivable party largesse as for me he is a completely busted flush, calling a referendum to resolve party differences which he then cocked up the campaign and left the party more riven then before. He misses the action and the centre stage and he should have though about that before blowing his opportunity. I did have a period of not really minding him as PM given the alternatives, but surely he’s sunk? I can only regard him with contempt now. Idiot.
