Blair Backs Heir

Just when Ed thought the onslaught against his leadership was dying down, guess who sticks an oar in?

Mr Blair said embattled Mr Miliband would be WRONG to pull back from his own forward-looking philosophy, WRONG to shift from the centre ground of politics and is WRONG to declare the days of New Labour were over.

And in another move that will infuriate the rookie Labour leader’s inner team, Mr Blair insisted PM David Cameron’s keystone health and education reforms were RIGHT.

In an interview with the Sun, Blair justifiably takes credit for the coalition’s education and NHS policy, as well as chastising Ed not understanding New Labour: “It is about the Labour party constantly being at the cutting edge, being a modernising party – always being full of creative ideas and isn’t pinned in its ideological past.” PMQs should be fun…
