THE Labour party is wondering if it should not just cut to the chase and reappoint Tony Blair as leader.
Following the former prime minister’s appearance on Good Morning Britain where he talked just like a human, senior Labour figures believe that given the circumstances it might be their best shot.
An insider said: “Where did it all start going wrong? When Blair left. Has it stopped going wrong since then? It has f**king not.
“We’ve had four leaders since, each a total disaster in their own special way, and gone from the Tories in fragile coalitions to a total Tory landslide. What have we got to lose?
“Yes we hated him, yes Iraq, but can we seriously afford to still be holding that against him in the circumstances? And I know he looks ancient but he’s only 68. That’s ten years younger than Biden.
“We were buggered for years before Blair. We’ve been buggered for years after. Voters like a man they recognise off the telly. Anyone got any better ideas? No? Right then.”
Tony Blair said: “F**king finally.”
