Blair: I “Recognise” Abuse Claims
Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister under Labour, has said that he “recognises” some of the abuse claims that have been made against MPs, including a number of former and current cabinet ministers.
Mr Blair, widely regarded as a war criminal, has likely done the impossible by making himself even less popular. The sex scandal has engulfed MPs from both sides of the house, destroying careers of all those involved and even leading to the suicide of a Welsh Assembly Member. His comments are leading people to believe that he could have prevented much of the abuse but failed to do so.
Blair said “it wasn’t something I got involved in”, sparking concerns that the former PM turned a blind eye to the abuse to further his agenda.
He also went on in the HuffPost interview to attack Corbyn, saying “I think the problem with (Corbyn’s policies) is they’re not progressive because they’re believing that, for instance, the big challenge in transport is to nationalise the railways. It isn’t”.
Another former Labour Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, has this week called for a second referendum after negotiations have completed, claiming that Britain might not leave the EU if there is a “game-changer”.
Looks like former Labour leaders are just as mad as the current one!
