[Marxism] A blast from the Past - Blair returns

So Tony is taking time out from his consultancies for tyrants and fellow
war criminals to rescue the Centre in UK and world politics.

Pause to puke.

What the Smarm does not grasp is the Centre which he  cavorted his way
through to great personal wealth and luxury was defined by neoliberalism.
With the crisis in the neoliberal paradigm that particular centre no longer
exists.  It is over.   To try and occupy it is to condemn one to political
irrelevance.

Having said that, I have full confidence in Blair's ability to make a buck
out of his latest scheme. But Blairism belongs to the high point of
neoliberalism and that is long over now.  He can of course make mischief
for the Corbyn team and certainly he will endeavor to do that, but there is
no going back the the so-called Third Way.


Final pause for another puke and a chance to think about Brecht's great
lyric as an apt description of Blair's smirk.


Und der Haifisch, der hat Zähne
Und die trägt er im Gesicht...

comradely
