The Vicar of Blair

Just tidying up my notebook, and came across a detail about the former PM. In 1983, whilst courting the favour of the good people of Sedgefield, the promise was “we’ll get ourselves out of the (then) EEC, because they’re taking out jobs.” By 2004 the same man is selling out our judiciary to the very organisation he had denigrated 21 years earlier, and woe to those who dared to disagree with him – “these Eurosceptic objectors are just ‘dumb’.” Don’t get me started on WMD. The man is a prime example of that ‘disconnection of the political class from the electorate’ which seems to morph so many who perch on the green benches.
