Tony Blair has branded the Tory plan to deliver Brexit a daydream and said he wouldn’t trust Boris Johnson with a blank cheque and the former prime minister is to deliver a speech and is expected to describe the plight of British politics as completely dysfunctional.
Tony Blair, will say that the voters should look at this election seat by seat, defining the General Election as 650 mini elections and he’s expected to say that the Conservative Party say vote Tory and Brexit will be done, it will be over.
They’ll even add, do it and then we can get back to dealing with the important issues, so obviously they don’t believe that Brexit is that important.
And what a cheek they have and in some ways it’s breath-taking, having visited this catastrophe upon us, which has diverted us from those important issues over three years, they’re now using that diversion as a reason for doing Brexit, not for abandoning it.
And even though Brexit is appealing for some but not for others, it doesn’t seem that Brexit is over, on the 12 December or at any other time, it’s simply a fantasy of being over and the Conservatives have calculated that they can force people to elect them, despite the apprehension over Brexit, because Jeremy Corbyn is the alternative.
The Labour Party leadership calculate they can combine traditional Labour support around issues like the NHS, with Remain voters who hate Brexit, despite fear about the Labour leader.
In other words, both parties want to win on the premise that whatever your hatred of what they’re offering, the alternative is worse and even though Brexit is a diversion, it’s also the essential determinant of the nation’s future.
Yet it remains the single most important decision since 1945 because of the impact it will have on our economy and how it’s done matters and a no-deal Brexit isn’t off the table and we are as a nation are slap bang in the middle of it.
When people hear the phrase no deal, they frequently think we just mean failure to agree, what it means is that we’re launching our economy off a cliff and hoping it finds a parachute on the way down.
And it’s a risk no rational leader would take, yet we may be about to allow a leader, Boris Johnson in taking such a gamble and it promises a revolution, and if achieved it would certainly amount to one but the problem with revolutions is never how they started but how they end.
But then why would we take advice from a warmongering car salesman? Because Tony Blair dirtied his reputation forever as a War Criminal and entered us into an illegal war which annihilated a million people, nearly destabilised the Middle East, left thousands of our forces dead, wounded or suffering from PTSD and also jumped ship when the economy was starting to disintegrate, so does his opinion really matter? But then psychotic disorders are severe mental disorders that cause abnormal thought and perception and who lose touch with reality.
But then people will vote for who they want to vote for without someone telling them who to vote for, especially Tony Blair.
And remember this is the same Tony Blair who began the war on the sick and disabled by hiring ATOS and don’t forget how these people have been treated.
Tony Blair should stay out of it, he’s had his time and should have had to answer for taking Britain to war with the Middle East over weapons of mass destruction, that didn’t exist and Tony Blair has no credibility whatsoever.
