Blair promises yet more of the same

Issue No. 1934

In a BBC interview last Sunday, Tony Blair laid out his plans for a third term.

“The election manifesto for this government will be unhesitatingly, unremittingly New Labour,” he told David Frost.

We can look forward to another five years of “market-based reforms” in the NHS, a “tougher line on law and order that allows us to deal with anti-social behaviour” and legislation to resolve “how you get the benefits of immigration but in a controlled way”.

This is why it is so important to have a strong Respect campaign in the general election. We need to show that the workers of this country are not passive and that we will fight back against these attacks.
