In a new interview with The Observer, Tony Blair has once more condemned Labour’s current direction as being “hard left”. The same interview sees Blair referring to Theresa May as “sensible”, “reasonable”, and “mainstream centre-right”. And this dismissal of Labour’s current policies, combined with the whitewashing of May’s record, shows just how far ‘mainstream’ politics has swung to the right.
Speaking to The Observer, Blair says:
[May is] in many ways a reasonable, sensible person, mainstream centre-right politician.
The trouble is, she’s a reasonable person delivering an unreasonable policy in the case of Brexit.
And it’s clear that Blair really isn’t on board with May’s stance on Brexit:
Why do you think the Ukip people are folding into the Tory party? Not because they think she’s going to deliver a softer version of Brexit. It’s because they think they’ve won.
Yet it’s difficult to see how any Labour politician could respect May. Her record in politics and government speaks for itself.
