Comeback: Ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair is to return to British politics

Tony Blair will make a dramatic return to the centre stage of British politics to boost Labour's election hopes.

The former Prime Minister is due to give a speech tomorrow attacking Tory policies and highlighting New Labour's achievements.

It will be the first time Mr Blair has stepped out of the political shadows since standing down from No10.

The speech, in his former constituency of Sedgefield, County Durham, is expected to dismiss claims that David Cameron is his natural successor and has modernised the Tories.

The carefully-planned attack will also attempt to portray the Tories as a far-Right party with extremist policies.

The news came as the latest opinion poll gave the Tories a seven-point lead, a week before the election campaign is expected to start officially.

A Labour source told the Daily Mirror that Mr Blair had been waiting for a long time to be able to campaign.

The source said: 'He's been pencilled in for weeks now and by all accounts he can't wait to get started.'

Mr Blair had been expected to campaign for Labour – but not until after Gordon Brown had officially called the election. Now Labour spin chiefs hope his speech will act as an unofficial head start to their campaign.

Mr Blair's experience at running the country is seen as a strength against the previously untested Mr Cameron and Shadow Chancellor George Osborne.

The former premier is due to make a number of other appearances for Labour before the poll, expected on on May 6. But critics have argued that his intervention is a high-risk gamble as many voters are still angry over his decision to invade Iraq.

Hundreds of campaigners gathered to protest when he gave evidence at the Iraq inquiry.

The Labour source added: 'It's a gamble for Gordon but it's one he must think is worth taking. And he must know just how good Tony can be on the campaign trail.'

Mr Blair has been advising Mr Brown on election strategy for months. He will be joined in planning Labour's campaign by his long-time allies, Business Secretary Peter Mandelson and spin doctor Alastair Campbell.

If the British are unable to see through Tony Blair for the liar and charlatan that he is then I'll eat my hat.

How many decent young men and women have died or been horrifically injured because he lied about Iraq ? How many innocent Iraqi citizens have met the same fate ? He should be on trial at the Hague along with Milosevitc.

Absolutely Gran.

I reckon if a flashmob was set up for this thousands would turn up.

Not that I'm volunteering to organise it, mind. Got to sort out a few things this week

After Iraqgate, who will spare him time of the day?

I am surprised that he's not prosecuted over that.

Ah, but they have Justine McGuinness behind the scenes, don't they? Nick Clegg can expect lots of text messages and bar bills then. Aaaargh!

And Esther "McCanns? Never Heard Of 'Em" McVey standing for the Tories in Wirral. Bleurrgh!

That's it then. I'm off to join the Raving Loonies. Probably the sanest (and least corrupt) bunch of all. onphone daft

You would hv thought someone would have been caught for one of those mischieves or (closet guy or brown paper over head affairs and what not) before now? Isn't that the common trait of all political parties?

My late dad used to say all lawyers and politicians are the worst croaks (sp) in the world.
He also rated bankers as blood suckers.

Blair on Sky this morning
Is it me, or is he now sounding much more 'gay' then ever before.
His speech pattern and pronunciation seems now to be adopting the 'mincing and lisping affectation'
so beloved of certain men.

What I have noticed is the reverential tone adopted by media journalists when 'interviewing' him. The same reverential tone is also afforded to Bill Gates, Peter Mandelson, any Black Lives Matter or transgender spokesman and ANY E.U. dignatory or official
