Congratulations to Tony Blair on his candidacy at Copeland.
He is believed by Jamie Reed and others to be the most popular and electable politician that has ever lived.
He always did just announce any and everything, thereby making it so, and that was that.
These days, he need to do nothing more than tweet that he was the candidate.
Then we could all see how well he would do.
If he fails to do this, then he needs to shut the hell up and go the hell away, once and for all.
