Andrew Marr to Anthony Blair Esq:
“A lot of people would say, well it’s absolutely clear, your vision is actually of a mostly conservative politician, and your journey has been from somebody who thought he was a Labour politician to someone who realised actually he’s not.”
Blair: “I am not a conservative, I’m a progressive…” (lists various policies, like the minimum wage, devolution and equality for gay people).
Marr: “David Cameron would support these (policies) too.”
Blair: “Why should we then say we’re like him, rather than he’s trying to get on our territory?”
Blair also as good as endorsed David Miliband, which I would guess, has lost young David several thousand votes at a stroke.

Stop Press: Dave (not Miliband) thinks those memoirs sound quite good, and may even buy them.
