Where is the love?

Part I Foreign Policy Centre director Mark Leonard says: “Pro-Europeans cannot afford to let the constitution vote become a referendum on Blair. Two thirds of the public are ready to be swayed but a campaign focusing on the prime minister will lose as many votes as it will gain.” Translation: “Everybody hates Blair and he’s a bloody liability”. I fear the propellor-hat is coming off this wonk, and I don’t think Lord Levy will be pleased with the young Mark, author of “Why Europe will run the 21st Century” [Look in the fiction dept.]

Part II Shagger Norris on Howard’s summer policy blitz “Some of them have hit the spot, most of them have been perfectly sensible but fewer if any have caught the public imagination.” Translation: “I nearly won against Ken. Howard hasn’t a hope at this rate.”

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
