Part 1: The Whys and Wherefores as to the failure to invite Blair and Brown to William and Kate’s wedding

Blair shunned as not “one of us” by the royalyou won’t get us we’re part of the unionfamily

Is this why the former Labour Prime Minister, the most successful election winner for his party ever, was not included on the tiny guest list of almost 2,000?

Tony Blair on the morning of Diana’s death: “You know how difficult things were for her from time to time, I’m sure we can only guess at. But, the people everywhere, not just here in Britain, everywhere, they kept faith with Princess Diana. They liked her, they loved her, they regarded her as one of the people. She was the people’s princess. And that’s how she will stay, how she will remain, in our hearts and in our memories, forever.”

This would not have gone down too well with the Royals, especially Prince Charles. Even if most of us saw the paparazzi as the main culprits in her difficulties, and even if that is what Tony Blair meant.

“That bally man! Who does he think he is?”, I can imagine Charles growl at his mother.

But yes, we did know how difficult things were for her.  Memories are short too as to how Blair rescued the royal family from itself in the days following Princess Diana’s death.  Charles also knows that some even reduce his and Diana’s marriage to this –

A pretty, young, innocent virgin had married a man who did not love her and who used her as little more than a trophy wife and the heir-bearing means to an end.

The People’s Prince is a moniker Charles will never have attached to his name, in life or afterwards. Something it seems he will always blame on the People’s Prime Minister.

The Daily Mail has done something I thought I would never witness in my lifetime. Scary. Really. Anyone knows if Paul Dacre is fine?!
Looks like the basis of Part 3 of The Whys & Wherefores of excluding Blair (and Brown) from the royal wedding.

I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)

The greatest and most successful leader the Labour Party has ever had with the courage to fight the Islamist terrorists who really would like to kill us all, and you never hear a good word about him. The herd of independent minds, commentators, activists etc who have never had to make a difficult decision in their lives drown out all debate with their inane chants of war crimes and blood on his hands. Defend him at every chance. I just wish more people would do it. (Glasgow, UK)

Blair was the greatest Labour Prime Minister. It is a disgrace that the party has turned away from his legacy. Shame on Ed Miliband and his so-called ‘new generation’.
