Yes, ex-Prime Minister

The Independent’s Steve Richards recently highlighted the existence of an ‘informal alliance’ between David Cameron and Tony Blair. Richards suggested that this ‘alliance’ is based on a policy agenda embraced by many of those who worked closest with Blair in government as well as some of Cameron’s most trusted Cabinet colleagues.

I reflected on the significance of this ‘alliance’ for Liberal Conspiracy – the UK’s most popular left-of-centre politics blog. I offered some thoughts about what it says both about Blair’s relationship with Labour; and, more generally, about the reasons why certain ex-Prime Ministers now allow themselves to be appropriated by their former rivals.
