He may be queering the pitch of those just revealed by today's Independent 
newspaper to have been beavering away to set up a campaign for another UK 
referendum on staying in the EU. Blair is itching to get into UK politics with 
some kind of launch already scheduled for January. And he has made statements 
against exiting from the EU.

But Blair is toxic not only for the Labour left, but any association with him is 
seen as a danger throughout the party. Right bureaucrats, who are still in 
charge of party administration despite the left's advances, have been suspending 
(usually leftwing) members for calling opponents within the party 'Blairites' - 
everyone sees this as a derogatory term these days. War criminal Blair is not 
good news for any UK campaign.
