If he really thinks that what the current mess needs right now is him. A war criminal champagne socialist who couldn't lie straight in bed, whose time as PM ended ingloriously - and he thinks HE should make a comeback???

Only someone who helped massively to fuck up the ME and then thought he could be the peace envoy for the region (and trouser a hefty wedge too) could be so blind, surely!

I think it would be amazing to get TB back, it could be the catalyst for the revolution....smile

As soon as I saw him on TV on the day of the Brexit results, I knew this would be his plan. He's right about the dope in charge of Labour, though.

What... He's after making a comeback?? How could he possibly help us? He put us to shits!

OohhThatsMe Sun 20-Nov-16 17:01:31

He's not even an MP. It's like everyone saying Nigel Farage could be PM - it's not like that here and if they're not an MP they can do anything at all.

He can fuck off. And when he gets to the far side of fuck, he can fuck off again. The two-faced twatbag war criminal.

How dare he lecture people about peace whilst taking money from dictatorships? It's a funny kind of socialist that's amassing a huge property empire and whoring himself out for whatever regime has the fattest checkbook.

The Labour govt achieved some really good things but his entire premiership has been tainted by Iraq and his behaviour out of office.

RatherSheepish Sun 20-Nov-16 17:19:46

God, imagine what could happen if he stages a comeback and becomes Labour leader again. They might do something drastic, like win a general election... grin

(All in jest, I'm no fan of the man.)

The one thing I will say for TB was that he was a unifying force. I admire Corbyn's principles - even if I don't agree with all of them - but he is a very divisive figure. The rise of the hard left is concerning; Private Eye has been writing about this for a while.

Temporaryname137 Sun 20-Nov-16 17:26:48

pauldacre has nailed it. Plus I always thought it was - I can't go further than coincidental but hmm - that his big thing was the Human Rights Act. And what kind of law did his wife specialise in? It's almost like she had a heads up to make a fortune out of it!

I wish he would be on another planet....

I read about his plan thins morning and it doesn't surprise me one bit.

I presume God told him his country needs him? That was his excuse for Iraq iirc.

Yes we're all in a mess and he and his govt helped put us there. He can fuck right off.

AmyInTheBoonies Sun 20-Nov-16 17:42:06

It doesn't really surprise me. I think he's a sociopath, he's never seemed sorry at all.

Saying that he did bring some very good policies and changes in when he was pm but the war can't be forgiven - the arrogance was breathtaking.

Ah, Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, on another planet. There's a comforting thought.

RortyCrankle Sun 20-Nov-16 20:14:19

He should be in prison for war crimes, not poncing about Westminster shouting his big mouth off.

orangebird69 Sun 20-Nov-16 20:18:10

The very thought of that man makes me irrationally angry. He's a murderous, evil cunt of a sociopath who should be doing time for war crimes. Disgusting despicable piece of shit. Saddam Hussain had nothing on him. 😠😠😠

PaulDacresConscience Sun 20-Nov-16 20:20:43

He thinks he's above the law. He has a God complex and was determined to throw his weight behind whatever the USA wanted, regardless of whether it was democratically the right thing to do in his own country. Countless people have lost their lives and the rise of IS can be linked to what happened in Iraq. You can't just storm in somewhere, bump off the ruling despot and then magically expect western-style democracy to spring up.

Damn right he should be in prison. Not that this would be likely to be any comfort to the service men and women and countless civilians who were killed in the conflict.

TulipsInAJug Sun 20-Nov-16 20:32:11

He needs a job now as the dictators and their ilk that he cosied up to have finally realised he can't do anything for them, and have given him the boot. So he's trying to re-invent himself as the Saviour of Britain .

He's so arrogant he's deluded himself into thinking he can save Britain. And that - almost even more ludicrously - Britons will welcome him back with open arms.

No way.

His time is over. He needs to shut up and go away.

Tony Blair was one of the best prime ministers we have ever had. Would love him to be PM again.

Twogoats Sun 20-Nov-16 20:37:36

I knew 2016 had another horrible trick up its sleeve! angry

Doobigetta Sun 20-Nov-16 20:41:02

Hated him when he was PM. Would welcome him back with open arms now if he could fix the fucking mess we're in.

PhilODox Sun 20-Nov-16 20:47:06

I don't think we need to worry too much about him.
Either he's right about God- in which case he's going to Hell when he dies.
Or he's wrong about God- in which case he will have been falsely righteous his whole life, and will be condemned to oblivion.

Temporaryname137 Sun 20-Nov-16 20:48:33

best prime ministers we've ever... oh blimey grin

PaulDacresConscience Sun 20-Nov-16 20:49:48

Seven - he took this country into an illegal war. Nobody is above the law. Not least the Prime Minister.

birdsdestiny Sun 20-Nov-16 20:50:12

As a Labour supporter for 20 + years, I would reap Blair for corbyn in a heartbeat.

Or swap even.
