    New political party 'may be impossible' in British system, says Tony Blair

    A new political party “may be impossible” within the British system, Tony Blair has said as he urged “serious figures” in both Labour and the Conservatives to demand change of their leadership.

    The former Labour prime minister between 1997 and 2007 said the forthcoming party conference season will also “expose in sharp relief the change state” of his former party and the Theresa May’s Tories.

    “They will provide evidence of the driving spirit inhabiting each main party, of the direction of the soul,” he said.

    His remarks follow months of speculation regarding the creation of a breakaway “centrist” party made up of those disillusioned with the leadership of Jeremy Corbyn.

    1. Blair's seeing his faction lose control of Labour and he's crying about it.

    Music to my ears.

      2. Agreed

      Even a Poodle howling at the Moon sounds good.

      “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels

    3. "Thing can only get better!"

    cudoes for those who get the reference.

    "Someone hacks the DNC allowing all of America to see how the DNC operates as one of the most corrupt political machines in national history. Ergo, Hillary Clinton should be installed as President by judicial fiat. And if you do not agree to this scheme you deserve to be brought up on charges of treason because fascism." - NUGrrl, december 2016 “Once a person has been determined to be an UNTRUSTWORTHY LIAR, their pretend stances on important issues are simply not relevant to rational discussion.” – Ida Briggs, September 2016

    4. What a complete waste of protoplasm.

    It ain't the things you don't know that hurts you, it's the things you know that ain't so.

    but God I hate him. If we could bring back the guillotine just once, I’d bring it back for Blair.

      6. much worse than GWB, and a different KIND of evil than Cheney and Rumsfeld

      who planned the war since 1992: Blair heard of it, knew he’d have to fake much of the evidence himself, heard it’d be a quagmire unlike Sierra Leone, dealt with David Kelly’s death, and decided to go along so Labour wouldn’t have a “kneejerk anti-American” reputation any more

      the Clinton campaign created Trump with the Pied Piper strategy (Third Way = Bell Curve)
