All the spending on the universities and NHS were basically regeneration funds to expand and spruce them all up to better enable the unis to demand f*** off fees and the hospitals were put on the market / game. Money based on real debts the taxpayer has years to pay off – many of them to be graduates with £30k of tuition fee debt on top of them. It was pure, unadulterated cronyism where New Labour truly trumped the Tories.
It was Labour that started smashing up legal aid – while creating over 3,000 new offences.
Don’t forget how far Blair expanded the surveillance state, oversaw complicity in torture with the US, and enwhored himself to Murdoch. and went a bundle on legislating through the autocratic European Commission, which he still seeks to take over.
Yes peace came to Northern Ireland – most of the groundwork was done under John Major – but peace there doesn’t justify war everywhere else – although it does because he rakes millions as a peace broker in the Middle East that he did so much to bomb the hell out of. Cos he is a war criminal.
Whatever vapid lies can be wheeled out to portray him as a wonderful leader of the left, none of whatever scant ‘good’ he did can justify bombing millions on lies.
