Blair’s Long Goodbye Speech – Liveblog

Thanks Prezza for sticking New Labour down the throats of the party membership.

Class Cherie joke “At least I don’t have to worry about her running off with the bloke next door”.

Starts listing how brilliant things are now and how terrible they were in 1997.

Things are really, really brilliant.

Starts on the history of the Labour party. Points out that Council house sales were first proposed by Labour.

Says gossip is more newsworthy than real news. [Too right, check the traffic figures...]

“It is hard to let go” – legacy will be a fourth term victory.

I love you Gordon, I do.

India, China, Terror, Change, Globalisation, Open yet secure, secure but open, openly secure, securely open. Openness. Security. Partners in progress.

New Labour for ever. Ten more years. Thousand year reich.

Nukes now, biosciences, stem-cell research, global warming, clean technology, clean coal, clean up politics, Kyoto to the max.

Skools are brilliant, loads more teachers, Google generation.

NHS reform SMASH THE UNIONS for a fourth term.

Home Office, Civil liberties, lock em up. ID cards will protect you. PRAISES REID. Ooooh.

Terrorists are everywhere. War for Peace. ID cards for Freedom.

I sorted out Belfast, I’ll sort out Palestine. I love Dubya.

Joke about the Blair boys canvassing, [See Gordon he connects with people, he can be funny, human, a leader]

No rules in politics. Get after David Cameron’s Tories, takes the piss out of non-policies and hug-a-mugger. Accuses Cameron of pandering to anti-Americanism.

Praises Denis Skinner. [Audience ecstatic.] Starts getting misty eyed. Audience silent. We are the world. We saved Africa. Win one more time for me. “You are the future now, make the most of it.”

He is just too good. They’re going to miss him when he’s gone.

Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann on Cameron’s refusal to pay the £1.7 billion EU bill by December 1st:

“Well, then he’s gonna pay on December 2nd”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
