Only Blair could save Labour now

#2
Maybe, if ,and it would have to be live on the telly, he was to eviscerate all of the labour front bench with a chainsaw or something nice and splattery like that before topping himself then I might forgive the *.
Otherwise, not a chance. :)

The cnut wouldn't go back anyway, he saw the writing on the wall which is why he left. He might be a tw@t but he's not stupid.

Does make you wonder WHAT he could actually do....

Seppu Ku perhaps? (Fcuked if I know how to spell it).

It's possible the poll respondents were only saying it in the hope that the cnut would come back and reap what he had sown. The only alternative its a strikingly convincing argument against universal suffrage. What wouod he do if he came back? Grin, mumble in that faux self-deprecating matter that he was a 'pretty decent sort of guy' in the face of ten years of evidence to the contrary? Try to climb up the arrses of the Obama camp the same way he did the Bush camp?

I strongly doubt that even Merlin could save New New Labour. A charlatan like Blair stands no chance.

No, and he's making untold millions on the lecture circuit and faffing around in the Middle East. If ever he does consider a comeback it'll be after NL self-destructs and the Tories have had a decent chance - eight years, say - to drop a few clangers themselves. He wouldn't yet be 65, and there'd be more than enough fools around to hail him as one the world's senior statesmen, so don't write him off altogether. Oh, the horror!

Tony Blair is the only senior Labour figure who would transform Labour's prospects at the next general election, according to a ComRes poll for The Independent.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/only-blair-could-save-labour-now-920805.html
The most telling part of the article!

For the poll, ComRes interviewed 1,013 British adults on 3-4 September. Data was weighted by past vote recall. ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. Full tables can be viewed at www.comres.co.uk

I'm inclined to agree meself.

Only Bliar coming back could truly finish what he started, and what Broon has so ably continued. This being the saving of Great Britain through the total wiping out of ZANU NL.

Bring him back I say!

Has anyone ever voted labour here?

I have yet to meet anyone who has openly admitted to voting labour...same was as I have not yet anyone who has openly admitted to voting Ken Livingstone.

I have voted Labour in the past. Prior to that I tended to vote Conservative up till they started to act so badly under Major. I did not vote in the last election as I could find no political party that touted policies that I liked.

Next election it will be Conservative again, not because I now have confidence in them. I just see no other way of booting this mob out. I do believe I am more disgusted with them than I was with the tories back in the lat 90's.

I doubt if anyone could save Labour single handed, they need an entire new front bench that has a grasp of their departments and in-touch with the public while doing what is in the best interests of the UK. Who have they got?

I think you have more chance of getting people to admit child molestation (smudge67 springs to mind) than voting for labour, even Sven was a lib dem.

Well looks like Labour is completely****ed, Credit crunch to last another 18 months.

The credit crunch could last another 18 months, with the property market to remain stagnant until 2010, a leading British mortgage provider warned today. Andy Hornby, chief executive of HBOS, said house prices were not likely to rise again until 2010 while lenders waited "to give the confidence back into the system for banks to start lending again".
The economy in the doldrums and house prices still massively depressed when the general election is finally forced to happen? Unless they manage to pull off a minor sodding miracle they're going to get slaughtered and the prospect of them having to fight the Liberal Democrats for the position of Loyal Opposition might actually be a possibility.

No.

Blair dismembered the party's traditional links between the left in order to promulgate centrism, i.e. New Labour. There are few lefties in the Labour party now for it to survive self-sufficiently when it loses the next election.

We will see the rise of a new centre-left socialist party or the eventual dissolving of socialism in Britain altogether, and once again the Liberals may finally take centre stage again.

No one can save Labour now.

I've often thought it would make a magnificent backing track for a YouTube video. As the song played, we could watch:-

Gordon picking his nose in Parliament
John Prescott groping his secretary in public
Throw in a few families having their homes reposessed
Abu Hamza telling his supporters to kill us
Chavs happy slapping their way through London
Same chavs exiting the police station after getting off with a caution
New corporate HQs being opened - in Dublin as business bails out of the UK

I think people don't understand the reasons for what is happening in Britain. It's got nothing to do with Gordon's charisma vacum. It doesn't even have much to do with the cabinet's incompetence.

We're in the Brown stuff (pun intended) because the government has been spending more than it earns for years. It's as simple as that. They've now got debts that they can't repay and the bailiffs are knocking on the door.

Even a Tory government wont be able fix this quickly. We'll be in the same state as we were in during the early 1980s with economic chaos as the government tries to get a grip of the mess Labour has left behind.

Brown is doomed and always has been from the moment he decided he wanted to step out of the dark shadows of the Treasury where he could bully and exercise his many OC disorders unseen.

Decided he was such a great gift to nation he had to be front man rather than just an evil back room plotter running a bonkers tax and spend socialist dreamland.

So he stepped into the light. And was very soon seen by the nation for what he is and always has been: a total cnut not fit to run a whelk stall. Oh his "friends" tried to prop him up but it was useless. Everybody apart from his toerags down in the bunker have admitted that for some time now.

But this is the line had had to be publicly crossed and now the Great Queen Toynbee has delivered the final verdict:

Unseating Gordon Brown may be Labour's last chance

Getting rid of the prime minister is a very high risk strategy, but a dying party should be ready to take dangerous medicine


"The smell of death around this government is so overpowering it seems to have anaesthetised them all. One bungle follows another and yet those about to die sit silently by. So is that it - the great September relaunch, the great economic recovery plan?

The problem is not lack of substance but absurdly grandiose expectations, raised mostly by briefings from No10 suggesting that there were magic answers. The ineptitude of Brown's Downing Street worsens by the week. The shrinking band of those he trusts are now his old rottweilers, who shred what's left of their leader's reputation. This week when they mauled Alistair Darling for telling an obvious truth (his actual words much exaggerated in the reporting), they attacked one of Brown's few truly loyal friends and a decent man. This is the sign of an inner cabal out of control. Brown apparently denies he orders these attacks on others, but fails to sack those who carry them out."

The good news in the poll is that Labour will loose no matter who is in charge. Even with Tony Blair in charge, the best they could hope for is a hung parliament with the possibility of Labour forming a ruling coalition.

The bad news is the large number of people who still intend to vote Labour. What on earth is wrong with them?
