    I am sick of shoveling money into the NHS.

    Most of us are suffering from terminal old age and only God can cure that.

    What I want is a couple of bottles of 15 year old El Dorado rum and half a dozen decent cigars, delivered fortnightly, delivered by a proper nurse in black stockings. The current ones seemed to be dressed for an afternoon serving steak bakes at Greggs.

What the remain side needs is someone like Blair, someone who can go on the offensive against the Brexiters rather than being on the back foot all the time fending off their lies and insults. My message to Blair would be 'go for the low-hanging fruit first - maybe I.D.S. !

    We had an election, a sort of referendum, in 2015 when a Tory government was elected
    Do those Brexiters who resist calls for a second referendum on the EU membership apply the same logic about keeping the present government in perpetuity?

    I for one, welcome unconditionally Mr Blairs comments and hope he will make regular and equally high profile further contributions to the debate for the foreseeable future.

    He did. And they didn't.

    I don't give a damn what Tony Blair thinks.
    He is neither MP, nor Prime Minister, nor government or country.
    17,410,742 British people including Scots said LEAVE!

    actually if you look on 'tinterweb there is a crowfund site to prosecute Blair.

    Now if all those who voted leave rose up,stuck their hands in their pocket and fished out 10p that would raise around 1.6 million
    Being an oldie I thougt I'd adopt millwalls chant "Nobody likes us we don't care" and I certainly don't anymore

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if he decided to form a new centrist party he would gain great support
    Nick Clegg would join, bring loads of LibDems, Ken Clarke would bring similar Tories, Labour centrists, and some Scotish and Welsh Nats,
    A very significant group that would change everything
    Go for it Tony
    A very significant

    Maybe Cherie could handle the case for the prosecution.

    From all accounts the Blairs are a very solidly married couple, but Cherie has always been keen to make a few bob. And I double that Tony is overly bothered if he wins or loses, just as long as he can mainline on the publicity.
