says it: 'Blair: with enemies like these...'. UKIP's marked increase in coverage lately is getting a further boost: what could be better than ex PM arch-vampire Tony Blair on the other side spouting hyperbole: in a speech last night to pro-EU Business for New Europe group he said that Euroscepticism was spreading "like a virus". "If ever there is anything that should convince the Conservatives to push for the exit [of the E.U.] it is that. Anything Blair is promoting has to be wholly wrong. That he thinks of the cause as a "virus" tells you more about him than eurosceptics" [sic]. Iain Watson (BBC News Political correspondent) asks if UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage believes [Blair's] influence will be negligible, Farage's assessment: was that Blair - like his promises - is "past his 'use-by date' and that voters would not listen to a man who put 'snake oil rather than milk on his cornflakes'".
By the way: THIS may scare you.
