The Expansion Of A British Dynasty
At first I thought this was purely part of the MSM's silly season, but it has been repeated often enough for me to realise there's no smoke without fire.
The young man pictured is Euan, the 28 year old eldest son of Tony and Cherie Blair.
According to Labour MP Tom Watson, the young Blair has shown commitment to improving his Labour credibility by taking up a public sector post, has even knocked on doors in previous by-elections and is a 'genuine Labour activist'. I do hope he didn't damage his knuckles with all that knocking.
Do genuine Labour activists live in £1.3million homes these days? What does this young man know about the realities of life for most of the population?
He is believed to have quit his job at the investment bank Morgan Stanley and is hoping to follow in his father's footsteps by becoming a Labour MP.
His father is back in the UK touting himself around the television studios in an attempt to ingratiate himself with the public. It's rumoured he would like to return to front line politics but there has been little enthusiasm within the Westminster bubble.
Another excellent reason for Scotland to become independent in 2014.
