    Does Mr Price seriously imagine Blair would admit this, even though he knows it to be true?

    Blair is now completely deluded, as he entrance to Levenson showed yesterday: the would-be sauve, debonair, informal manner – he looks what he is – a cheap actor, the “Ken Barlow” of politics.

    Despite the hoity-toity voice and manner he is the epitome of sleaze and vulgarity.. He is a very good example of why politicians are held in such lo esteem in this country.

    I would once again urge Ed Miliband not to get too close to this toxic individual, or to let his MPs be influenced by him, to allow Blair to be rehabilitated to the extent that he could meddle in domestic politics again: if he does then I think you can consider the next election lost already. It is as sensible as allowing Dr Harold Shipman’s name to appear on the letterhead of an old peoples home.

    Sorry if I have upset the great man’s admirers with a dose of reality.

    Blair too close to Rupert Murdoch? If he’d been any closer he would have probably become the mother of Rupert Murdoch’s children rather than simply their godfather! Pucker up Tony and plant a big wet kiss of Murdoch’s gluteus maximus.
