Blair to go 'on and on' and to stop Gordon's succession
Firstly Tony Blair intends to stay-God knows, it's bitter enough already- to the bitter end. He will ignore any calls to go early. Gordon can go stuff himself. Secondly, and related to this sentiment, is the intention of Blair to frustrate Brown's sucession if he possibly can. The elevation of John Reid to Home Secretary is evidence that he intends to back the combative excommunist Scot as his chosen successor. Those who say there is real emnity between the two men appear to be right: as far as Tony is concerned, Gordon can go stuff himself.
The Tories would like nothing better than for him to go now or very soon.
The MPs in our party who are plotting against the PM, with letters circulating etc, should shut up.
We won a third term only a year ago on the manifesto on which all of them were elected.
TB will likely step down shortly before the next election which will give Gordon (or whoever it is) a honeymoon period.
The Tories would just love it for Tony to go now and people on our own side should put a sock in it and support the government and party.
Time to renew.
They want Labour to give Gordon the PMship now so the bubble on his honeymoon bursts long before the next election.
Say what you like about TB but he won a third term a year ago and these last local elections, whilst not good, were not a meltdown.
The Tories fear Blair as he can sock it to them in Parliament and still has a job to do.
Like it or not, and I like it personally, he was elected as PM only a year ago.
You should stop being Daily Mail leader writers and back your party not do the Tories work for them.
What Mr Cameron and his pals fear is Mr Brown still being a fresh PM at the next election.....
