WHAT? Am I seeing things?
Why is Tony Blair signing this BLUE leaflet?
Beside his picture, light blue background left, darker blue on the right it says in white (not red) – “Labour: the future for Britain”.
None of this can be the least bit accidental.
The election leaflet/picture/souvenir/hand-out does seem to have (a version of) the Labour slogan “I want a future fair for all” and something about “…term … deliver it”, in red.
But, nonetheless …
Don’t know if I’ve missed something but nowhere until today have I seen “A Future Fair For All” that looks more like a Conservative leaflet than a Labour one.
If the significance of the colour scheme of the Blair signed leaflet and the reminder of the Middle Britain appeal of the former Prime Minister doesn’t get a few snakes rattling in the undergrowth nothing will. This may also stiffen the resolve of David Miliband to challenge Brown on Friday, if Labour’s most horrifying nightmare is played out on Friday morning.
