    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.

    A day in Dundee – “my beloved rebel”

    Dundee has a special place in my heart; it’s where I was born. Historically famous for its jute, jam and journalism this unique trio forged its reputation as a single minded strong willed maverick kind of place. Raised in a politically active family, the DNA runs deep, I’ve maintained a lifelong interest in the political landscape of that community, built beneath an extinct volcano, The Law. Its modern manifestation as the City of Discovery is a homage to its proud […]

    Was the referendum result good for the union, but bad for Labour?

    Was this the high water mark of secessionist sentiment in Scotland? At first it may seem an outlandish idea. Scottish Nationalism has been a riding tide for over thirty years – from fringe cause, to Westminster representation, to a Scottish parliament, minority government and then majority government. But something also broke in the movement this week. The SNP dominated Yes campaign ran to a large extent on the idea that if Scotland voted for independence, the hated Tories would never […]

    Gordon Brown rules out return to frontline politics

    After his spectacular return to prominence in the final weeks of the referendum campaign – with many crediting his interventions as crucial in securing a final swing towards the No campaign – rumours began to circulate that Gordon Brown might make a more permanent return to frontline politics. His barnstorming speech on Wednesday in particular reminded many in the Labour Party of what they once admired so much in the former PM. Yet today – as he spoke publicly about […]

    Miliband outlines housebuilding plans – including “New Homes Corporations” and public sector housing

    Last year Ed Miliband committed Labour to ensuring 200,000 homes are built each year by 2020. Whether or not that target is ambitious enough has been hotly contested over the past year, but as he arrived in Manchester for Labour conference today, Ed Miliband outlined how that target will be met – as the first of a series of “Labour’s plan for Britain’s Future” announcements. The proposals – the first to be revealed from an interim report of the party’s […]
