Speaking to Time, right-wing former PM shows no sense of embarrassment or even self-awareness
Not quite seven months ago, in the aftermath of Labour’s Blairite-engineered general election defeat, the founder of the faux-Labour ‘religion’ mocked the manifesto that Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour presented to the people – reserving particular venom for Labour’s plan to introduce universal broadband to ensure that disadvantaged people and communities were fully enabled to participate in the technological revolution:
But the people weren’t fooled. They know life isn’t like that. And this loading in of free broadband run by government at the last moment was the final confirmation of incredibility.
Today, speaking to Time, Blair… called for universal broadband to ensure that disadvantaged people and communities are fully enabled to participate in the technological revolution:
It would be tempting to say you couldn’t make it up. But the unhesitating willingness of Blair and his acolytes to rewrite history to avoid any blame for the electoral disaster they created shows that such wilful and shameless pivots are entirely imaginable, because they are fully in keeping with their essential nature.
And Mr Blair just put it on video to prove it.
