Tony Blair Knew Gordon Brown Would Be A Disaster
So Tony Blair knew that Gordon Brown was going to be a disaster, or so Blair claims in his book, The Journey published today.
All the major broadsheets are covering the book, which has comfortably beaten whatever crap Gordon Brown is going publish later this year and thus will be taken by future historians as the definitive account of the disaster sometimes known as the New Labour Experiment.
Hat tip to Blair for taking a bankrupt ideology and hoodwinking the electorate by prefixing Labour with New, still if people are dumb enough to believe that a leopard can change it spots then everyone who voted Labour should also be blamed for the state the country is now in.
With such a choice of reviews of Blair’s book Aardvark has gone for the Guardian coverage to see what left of centre quasi intellectuals think of the The Journey
Tony Blair came to the view that Gordon Brown would be a disaster as prime minister and that Labour could not win the 2010 general election, he reveals in his long awaited memoirs.
“It was never going to work,” Blair writes of Brown’s three years in No 10, arguing that the former chancellor had “zero emotional intelligence” and fatally abandoned the New Labour formula.
Brown was always going to be a disaster, he is a true believer in the global socialist crusade, much like the character played by Eric Morely in “The Africa Queen” who cracks up totally when the Germans attack his mission and kill all his “little children”; which is how Brown saw himself leading his “little children” in this case the people of this once great country.
In the book and in his only pre-publication interview, Blair reveals that:
• Brown personally threatened to bring him down over the loans for honours scandal in 2006, before offering to stay his hand in return for the abandonment of Lord Turner’s plans to reform pensions.
• He feels intense “anguish” over the lives lost in the Iraq war and failed to “guess the nightmare that unfolded”.
• He believes Labour was wrong to ban fox hunting and pass the freedom of information act which is “not practical” for good government.
Once again Brown and pensions comes up, what does Gordon Brown have against pensions?
Gordon Browns dull and dreary tome when it finally floats up from the bottom of the pond will doubtless attempt to make the case for his actions as Chancellor and PM.
The big question is will anyone actually give a shit about what Brown has to say?
