Tony Blair betrayed the Labour Party’s core values in a desperate bid to get power. He watered down and devalued socialism in the process of modernising the Labour Party to make it palatable to middle class values. However far from being a hero Tony Blair was in fact a traitor to traditional Labour Party values. He returned a Government that lacked bite and was so similar to the Tories that even the Tories lackey, ‘The Sun’ newspaper , actually endorsed him. He was responsible for a style of Labour Party political decisions that more commonly represented the Conservative Party. He probably did more damage to the Labour Party than Margaret Thatcher managed whilst she was leader of the Tories.
