twelve years after Margaret Thatcher left office, she was asked at a
dinner what was her greatest achievement. Thatcher replied: “Tony Blair and New Labour.“
centrists and right-wingers like tony blair and alastair campbell continue to complain about the labour party moving to the left. it’s predictable that the same people who lied about the iraq war and moved the labour party further and further to the right under “new labour” now want to stop jeremy corbyn and the labour left from gaining power.
unfortunately it appears that blairites would rather have the tories remain in government and continue austerity (including having the conservatives negotiate brexit) than have jeremy corbyn become prime minister and support a leftist uk government. their main aim continues to be to undermine the left.
the same centrist/right-wing blairites who undermine jeremy corbyn and
the labour left at every opportunity continue to spread the lie that a
centrist/right-wing labour leader more aligned with tony blair’s
thatcherite politics would somehow win the next general election.
