    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.

    Is Blue Labour the answer to Labour’s woes?

    What can the much-derided Blue Labour offer the party? It is a question worth asking, because the leadership contest has so far largely eschewed big ideas. Surely, losing so badly in England and being flat-out destroyed in Scotland calls for a thorough reckoning with the party’s downward trajectory from 2005 to the present – a soul-searching process which asks: what is Labour now for? Jeremy Corbyn is excelling and inspiring partly because he is the only candidate with a clear […]

    The Calais migrant crisis is a bigger problem than you think

    The crisis in Calais didn’t start overnight. It is a problem that has been allowed to grow in spurts. Last September, the British and French authorities claimed the situation was at crisis point with hundreds desperate to make the dangerous journey of illegally entering the UK. There is a clear pattern. First, the situation is allowed to fester until it becomes too big to handle. Then each side offers one-off additional funding to bring calm. Tensions are relieved temporarily, but then get […]

    Harriet Harman urges Cameron to demand compensation from the French government over Calais crisis

    Harriet Harman has written to the David Cameron to urge him to ask the French government to pay compensation to Britons affected by the chaos at Calais. In a letter to the Prime Minister (the full text of which you can find below), Labour’s interim leader argues that the government has ignored warnings from Labour and hauliers about the growing crisis at Calais. There are thought to be over 3,000 people living in a ‘migrant camp’ in Calais and over […]

    What do final CLP nomination patterns mean for each leadership candidate?

    Two weeks ago I did an initial analysis of the patterns in the CLP nominations for Leader. We now have the final nomination figures: 145 for Jeremy Corbyn (though some sources are saying 147) (38% of those nominating), 110 for Andy Burnham (29%), 109 for Yvette Cooper (29%), 18 for Liz Kendall (5%). This means that 267 CLPs (41%) did not nominate. As I said last week some deliberately don’t bother – the two large Oxford CLPs (where I live) […]
