Yeah, that's right. I mean an ex Prime Minister saying something fairly contentious isn't news at all - they should stick to asking Nigel Farage's opinion on absolutely everything

War criminal? All I see here is a man bravely standing up for the interests of the people of the UK.

it's Tony f**king Blair. Everyone thinks he's an idiot, he has no credence at all, anywhere, despite being an ex PM.

And yet Nigel Farage still gets an incredible amount of airtime on the BBC.

People in both constituencies are loudly (and, in my opinion, foolishly, given how they voted in the referendum and what it was they actually did vote for) complaining about Brexit being the topic of discussion. I can easily see it being rendered largely irrelevant.

It's a pretty easy touchstone to establish whether somebody's worth conversing with though. Similar to "MSM" and "Neo-Liberal" in that respect.

I think you may be surprised. Nothing seems to stick to UKIP and he isn't running in Liverpool.

Besides, the Tories winning Copeland would be huge.

Indeed, but between Iraq, immigration and public spending he's managed to alienate voters from all angles and has been seen as political poison since his resignation.

A divisive former Prime Minister weighs in on the single most important topic of the last god knows how many years (and for many years in the future) with a contentious point of view and you're upset that the BBC are covering it on their morning shows which notoriously repeat stories relentlessly. Gosh.

What news are we missing as a result? Looking at iPlayer it seems like the most recent news show on BBC2 seems to have covered quite a lot of things. Even the football. I fear you're exaggerating quite badly.

He's asking people to "rise up"

I suggest you watch the report.

I'm well aware what he's saying. You seem to think that the BBC, who repeat all the major news stories throughout the day, are attempting to back Blair's comments by repeating them.

Not surprised to find the Brexiters trying to suppress freedom of speech & information.

Fits the profile well.

If Blair called for a popular uprising there'd a be a risk of dozens - dozens of people in the streets.

Funny seeing people try and defend the indefensible.

The BBC have an agenda in place.
