TONY Blair has given his unequivocal, 14 per cent backing to Ed Miliband.
The ex-Labour leader said his successor was ‘everything he expected him to be’ and that ‘only some parts of Britain would be totally destroyed’ if Miliband was in charge.
Speaking in his former Sedgefield constituency Blair said: “I like the name Miliband. That part of his name is good.
“At some point there may have been some confusion about the rest of the name and a mistake was made, but here we are.”
He added: “The part of me that vaguely believes in the NHS and tackling climate change is fully behind Ed, which I think is, at most, about 14 per cent, but probably closer to nine.”
Blair then launched a scathing attack on prime minister David Cameron, saying: “If it wasn’t for Europe, I’d vote for you.”
