We're told that, whatever you say about Tony Blair, he did make Labour electable. But he didn't.  There isn't even that.

Making Labour electable again was the work of Neil Kinnock and John Smith.  Blair was the beneficiary.

And as for his claim that Brown lost the last election, does anyone remember what the polls looked like at the start of the last Parliament?  Labour was doomed under Blair, because of Iraq. The only small chance the Party had was to find a new leader.  Almost any new leader.
