Backing Blair – You Have No Choice.

Posted by | February 12, 2005 | Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Now’s the time for a long overdue introduction to Backing Blair – a political project that has been under wraps for a good few weeks, and that wibbler.com has had a hand in. Why, of all things, would I be helping code the pages for a campaign called Backing Blair? Well, it’s a strikingly clever take on the Blair regime, seeing the all-seeing Labour administration for what it is – a party that is veering towards an Orwellian, 1984-style authoritarian regime. As the Backing Blair website puts it, “people involved in this campaign pretty much want to get rid of Blair and bring a halt to his style of government. We hope that includes you.”
Why are we voting Blair in time and again? Because any negative news we might hear about them is skewered by media manipulation. Sure, it’s clever – but it’s not benefiting anyone but the government.
So, Backing Blair was born, a collaboration from Bloggerheads, The UK Today and wibbler.com. It’s a grassroots campaign, so it needs all the support and funding it can get. Pop over to the site and see if it floats your boat. And I leave you with a little note I left a year ago. It still stands, Mr Blair.

    I may have missed something, but I don’t understand the purpose of the Backing Blair site, nor can I see any content on the site to define its mission. And don’t refer me back to youre original post, I’m not stupid…

    The purpose, my good friend, is to ape the tactical voting that occurred in the 80s and early 90s to oust Tory MPs from their seats. Then, LibDems with no hope of election voted Labour, just to get the Tories out. Backing Blair is aiming to get people to vote tactically to oust Labour seats, and damage Blair’s power. Of course, BB is doing other things, but we’ve only just started… 😉

    Oh, and the content thing – we’re working at ways to convey this better. However, think Orwell and 1984 and you’ll get the idea…

  • I kinda agree with the idea, But I know me and you sir stand either end of the political spectrum.
    While I want to see Blair go. I just can’t bring myself to vote Tory, However where I live I think its a Tory strong hold anyway.
