It’s only acting
There’s no contesting the fact that Blair is an extremely clever individual with as they say, ‘the gift of the gab’. Yesterday, he made his pitch at the Labour Party conference for his ‘reforms’. Measured rhetoric with a low-key theatrical syntax, lots of ‘stroking’ of his opponents – the result of a team of smart scriptwriters – it’s Blair’s hallmark. That ultimately, it’s entirely hollow and devoid of actual content that addresses the issues citizens want answers to, gets lost in the means of delivery and that of course, is the objective.
