The Return of Tony Blair? Yeah?
Some mischievous tabloids are suggesting that Blair might be returning to British politics: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3954246/The-Tories-screwing-Brexit-Jeremy-Corbyn-s-nutter-m-returning-politics-Tony-Blair-hunts-Westminster-office-set-new-Brexit-lobbying-group.html
Here is my 2011 review of Tony Blair's autobiography: https://quadrant.org.au/magazine/2011/01-02/the-great-salesman/
The final paragraph of my review summarises the hurdle Tony Blair would have to jump were he to return to domestic politics: "The dream has soured for the man who once upon a time was as popular as Princess Diana. At this moment, in his book, it seems a little churlish not to feel sorry for him. But maybe our sympathy is better spent on the nation he misruled for ten long years."
