Blair criticises Brown

#1
So Tony Blair feels Mr Brown's speech was 'empty' and wonders what there is of substance in New Labour.

I am torn between posting "Cheeky cnut" or that old classic, "Hello tea-kettle, this is pot, verify colour setting over..."

Mr Blair. You are far too recently resigned to criticise your successor for the conduct and indeed results of government, without getting a pretty comprehensive back-splatter as the solids hit the air conditioning system. I would ask, what exactly have YOU achieved since volunteering for a Nobel Peace Prize in, oh say 2009?

It was only a matter of time before the "special relationship" unravelled and let's be honest, Bliar needs to keep himself in the public eye to support the mortgages.
I'm surprised he has noticed Broons recent performances though, as I thought he was far too busy bringing peace to the Middle East?
Tw*ts the pair of them. :x

Some chap named Blair you say? Who's he then?
I believe Blair was one of the first great liars of the 21st century, he went on to destroy the fabric of British life. I think he and his wife, a freeloader in her own right, now sell rugs out in the Middle East.

Brown and Bliar are two of the most noxious people I have ever had the sadness to be affected by. The third of the club is the 'Traitor' Heath. I'm not interested or particularly impressed by the 'Heath defenders', he was a disaster as a prime minister, only to be equalled by Bliar and shortly to be overtaken by the oik 'Bottler' Brown as the WORST EVER PRIME MINISTER!

Blair is finding it easier to criticise from the cheap seats :D

Chubby Falconer has another agenda other than simply acting as His Master's Voice.

Broon is not paying him the pension he feels he deserves.

Bliar will have to make himself look better than he does now to flog his memoirs. One way of doing this is to put the boot into Broon, who was the beneficiary of a substantial "he's not Bliar" bounce in the opinion polls. This may backfire in at least two ways.

The cash-for-honours inquiry is now being scrutinised by a Parliamentary committee. They may decide to take a different view than the DPP/CPS, that there wasn't enough evidence, in their conclusion. It is impossible to imagine that No 10 are watching this closely, with the occasionan nudge.

An Iraq inquiry has been promised. This will be delivered when Broon decides it is time (and what the conclusion should be). A lot of blame could suddenly be directed in a certain direction. Hopefully, enough blame to make a prosecution in the Hague a possibility!

What fun times! :twisted:

Don't know what you are complaining about Cuddles. Blair's only following in the footsteps of your heroine the Mad Thatch of Finch who started in b'itchin' about Major from day one.

Tea kettles? Pots? Black?...do me a favour.

There are a lot of homing chickens out there, seeking landing instructions.., and plenty of roosts to fill...

Ah, joy!

I raise a glass in anticipation of amusing times ahead! :D

I think I read that story differently to you. My impression was that the "Blairites" complaint was that G. Brown is more concerned as presenting himself as different to Blair than he is about being different from the Tories or Lib-Dems. TBH, I agree. Brown does seem to be trying to play the "I am new and different" card. He did it again this morning broadcasting from a school about exercise and nutrition.

So, IMO Blair isn't criticising brown over policy/results but image (and we all know image is far more important than substance to new-labour).

Goodkurtz, you make the assumption that Cuddles wasn't annoyed when Thatcher did same to Major. Your evidence of this is..?

Any conspiracy theories to add at this point?

In short: Tw@t thinks Tw@t is a Tw@t. Hardly news is it?

I don't think Brown will be losing too much sleep over comment by the 'Discredited Former Leader', he hasn't exactly been pandering to the Bliarites has he?

Bring on the coup and a military Junta based on meritocracy.

Edited because the swear filter doesn't like the word twat.

To be fair Maggie was right to critcise John Major.

Notwithstanding everything else - Edwina Currie for gawd's sake!!
