Now it seems that David Cameron is in regular contact and Blair has actually visited Chequers, a meeting that has previously not been disclosed but then politics is a funny game and didn’t Cameron open himself to ridicule by stating I am the heir to Blair, heaven help us!
Politics used to be a cut and thrust business with men and women of beliefs and principle, we knew where we were, love or hate Margaret Thatcher you knew where she stood and then Tony Blair came along who did change the face of British Politics, not for the better. Further reading
Let us remember the Blair years, Tony Blair did win 3 elections, mainly by lies, smoke and mirrors, he also presided over:
Put simply the Blair years were the years of greed and ego which of course led to failure, apart from winning elections practically their only achievement was failure but of course by the next general election the smoke and mirrors will have worked again and all of the Labour Parties failures will be the fault of the Conservatives!
There are also rumours that Cameron has not ruled out giving Lord Adonis, who is supposed to be running the Labour industrial strategey, a job but it is Lord Adonis who is the middle man in secret negotiations currently going on between the Lib Dem’s and the Labour Party, talk about double agents, betrayal and deceit!
It was also reported recently that Tony Blair and Peter Mandelson are trying to make a comeback into British National Politics having regular meetings with senior Labour figures and MP’s, does Cameron really think Blair will help him win the next election?
Whilst I am not a fan of Cameron the thought of Labour back in power does not bear thinking about, it will take two parliaments to sort out their last mess so Cameron is our only hope but he must take on board that politics is, has always been and always will be a dirty business and, along with the country, his party is basically to the right of centre which is where his policies need to be.
The centre ground is a myth often moved around to suit politicians, the Lib Dem’s say that they represent the middle ground but if that is right the politics of the middle ground is actually way to the far left, the best way the describe the middle ground of politics is the muddle ground!
David Cameron has to get his head straight, he is not in any partnership with the failure party(Labour) or any of its previous leaders, he is coalition with a small minority left-wing party(Lib Dem’s) but most importantly he is in coalition with the rest of the Conservative Party and the British people!
