Heir to Blair: Tony and Cherie Called Robinson For Euan

Geoffrey Robinson has responded to Guido’s story about  him standing down at the next election:

 “I’m standing. Period”

A denial of Thraser ineptitude, but it was the Coventry Telegraph that really caught Guido’s eye:

“Senior Labour party sources close to city MP Geoffrey Robinson’s office claim both Tony and Cherie Blair have contacted the MP inquiring about his Coventry North West constituency seat for the next election.”

On the record, Labour spinners have dismissed the idea of Euan Blair going for the seat in three years time, but crucially they did not deny that he had been attending constituency meetings – as Guido exclusively reported – and that he had been delivering in the local area. Apparently it’s because he’s involved in the local party. You have to wonder why that is when he lives in a £1.3 million bachelor pad 95 miles away in Marylebone…

Despite Robinson denying he was helping Euan, the evidence is mounting up. Since quitting his job at Morgan Stanley, Blair junior has recently taken up a part time, and possibly voluntary role, at Sarina Russo Job Access – a company based in Coventry that is part of the government’s Work Programme. That will look better on the local CV than investment banking…

Meanwhile the Telegraph’s deadly rival, the Robinson patsies over at the Coventry Observer, have swallowed old Geoff’s denial hook, line and sinker. The story was right under their noses…

    No. He’s got the best possible connections so will be a shoe-in for a safe seat somewhere sometime. The Morgan job, helped by his dad is to show he is ‘city friendly’, the new one at Sarina Russo Job Access is to appease the lefties of his ‘man of the people. His dad knows what needs to be done to get the top job and his son is following the instructions; Jedi Master and Apprentice if you will

    What are we talking about here?…The Monarchy?

    It’s Revolution in my book if Blair’s privileged offspring comes anywhere near a seat, indefensible on every level and something that you’d never hear the last of if it was tried on by any of the other parties.
    The only plus point is that it would be the final nail in the coffin of the party of the eternal sell-out, ‘New’ Labour.

    It’s quite unbelievable Blair Snr and his scary faced, free-loading bitch of a wife even shows their bloodstained lying faces in public anymore let alone even testing the water with this f**king scam.

    I think you will find

    All the money you made

    And I hope that you die
    And your death’ll come soon
    I will follow your casket
    In the pale afternoon
    And I’ll watch while you’re lowered

    And I’ll stand over your grave
    ‘Til I’m sure that you’re dead.

    I have some advice for Ewan Blair: Piss off, get a real job (without having to rely on your father’s surname), pay your bills (again, without having to rely in Mummy and Daddy), experience life (as us plebeians do IE not surfing through life on Daddy’s coat-tails) and then, once you are a well rounded individual, perhaps then you might (note MIGHT) be ready to represent the people in the mother of all parliaments. Until then, nobody in their right mind will vote for you (which, sadly, means you may well get a sizable chunk of the left wing vote).

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
