The Sunday Telegraph says that Labour are intending to wheel out Tony Blair in the election campaign.

Is this a joke?

During the last election, post Iraq, Brown was trundled around with Blair in order to shore up his image with Labour faithful. Now we are to believe that a discredited Blair is Labours new secret weapon.

As one Labour MP is alleged to have told the Telegraph, “I can’t see how wheeling Tony out is going to help us win the election,”

In fact, as ever the Telegraph headline is not quite up to the content of the story below it as they confirm, “Mr Blair is not expected to go “out on the stump” during the election campaign but he is expected to make at least one major speech and give at least one interview in the run up to polling day in which he will attack Mr Cameron”

‘Blair attacks Cameron’ – hardly news is it?
