Blair & Brown: The New Labour Revolution – #1

16/10/2021

Watch soon as may disappear

From The Times October 5,2021

What is it about New Labour and one-liners? We all remember Tony Blair saying this was “not a day for soundbites” while the ink was drying on the Good Friday Agreement, before talking about “the hand of history on our shoulder” in the next breath. Older, greyer, their memoirs gathering dust, they’re still at it, with Douglas Alexander chirpily telling this excellent new series that Blair and Gordon Brown were “literally the Lennon and McCartney of Labour politics”, Peter Mandelson opining that “Tony was much more new, Gordon was much more Labour”.
