So. How did the tabloids respond to the arrival of’ Tony Blair on the Labour Party’s election bandwagon?

 

DAily Mirror Tony Blair

 

You’d think the Mirror would hail the arrival of the Labour Party’s most successful leader (at least in term’s of winning elections). But you need to wait until page 9 for any sign of grinning Tone.

In his ‘The Heckler’ column, Tim Walker mentions Tony Blair’s “crow’s feet” “Quite how sensitive Blair is about the lines around his eyes is clear from newly-released correspondence between his flunkies and the Naitional Portrait Gallery over their official study of him”.

Tony wanted less lines. The artist complied.

And that’s it.

The Daily Star has not a single photo of Tony Blair.

The Daily Mail puts him on its front page. Stood before an orange backdrop and looking tanned, Tony is every inch the vision of toxicity.
