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.

Quote of the Day

Michael Crick on Safe Seats:

“In effect, new MPs are being elected day by day now, as, amid huge secrecy, small cabals of party bigwigs pick candidates for safe seats.”
