    I would imagine he has very good reasons for backing remain, I wouldn't like to speculate if they were illegal or immoral as thats something Blair already has to deal with every day when he looks through the mirror.

    We'll be the toilet of Europe if we don't get those doors closed....

    Australian type immigration is essential.

    But individuals that we need have been and always will be welcomed - it's the millions and millions of the great unwashed that a "open door" policy will attract.

    Anyone......and I mean anyone DO NOT LISTEN TO ME....

    GO TO BOSTON:

    Lincolnshire voters were among the most Eurosceptic in the UK, with more than 75% of voters in Boston voting to leave. The town recorded the highest majority of Brexit voters in Britain.

    GO there and ask why !

    I'm not sure why anyone would want to take notice of what Blair says anyway.

    You can see what he is up to.

    Ends up in disgrace following the Chilcot enquiry and being the unprincipled opportunist that he is, he sees a group of people with an axe to grind and now wants to be the figurehead to try and claw some credibility back.

    The damage this guy has done is enormous.

    Well what Blair proposes isn't going to be a tea party.

    A multimillionaire supposed socialist giving us "oop north" advice on how bad it might be.

    Like getting contraception advice from the Pope.

    Some more fake news jolly? I don't think Blair has ever stated he's a socialist, and as a socialist myself, he's as far from a socialist as you are....

    " I am a Socialist not through reading a textbook that has caught my intellectual fancy, nor through unthinking tradition, but because I believe that, at its best, Socialism corresponds most closely to an existence that is both rational and moral. It stands for co-operation, not confrontation; for fellowship, not fear. It stands for equality, not because it wants people to be the same but because only through equality in our economic circumstances can our individuality develop properly."

    Hansard, House of Commons, 6th Series, vol. 45, col. 316.


    Blair's own words, apologies for the cut and paste old bean

    Ps you can have the last word if you wish.

    A journalist has asked our Prime Minister if she would take Tony Blairs advise. My advice would be to do the exact opposite of what Tony Blair says.

    Haha, nice one old bean, didn't know you had it in you, so he has said it! i take back what was posted previously, i'd take the first 5 words of his speech as the truth, "i am a socialist not"

    Good lord, jolly has checked the factual accuracy of something he read on the Internet! This must be a first.

    "The bast thing she ever did was to invent Tony Blair"

    Or words to that effect.

    As a councilor in the village I live I watch others battle to get noticed. I watch them take credit for something good that has been passed even if they have been to 1 of the many meetings that are needed for something to change.
    It is tiresome watching egos gtting massaged but it's normal in those circles. My favourite book is Animal Farm by George Orwell and I can honestly say that the story is being played out in front of my eyes. Boxer is a friend of mine but he doesn't realise. The Battle of the cow shed is just starting as the district council is taking away the powers of local councils whilst at the same time taing up holiday Gites to house immigrants despersed from the camps at Calais.

    George Orwell said that true socialism cannot exist whilst ever there is communism. Personally I think communism is being more apparent to those in power than they think. In the UK the Pigs are the cabinet but within that there is a smaller circle including some unelected that make decisions to suit their ideals and not ours.
