Former prime minister, and current wide-eyed maniac Tony Blair has been sticking his filthy rich, oily oar in yet again…

This time he’s hit out Jeremy Corbyn (yawn), warning the public that Corbs is not the right person to run the country.

In an ill-advised bout of hypocrisy Blair claimed that Corbyn is actually part of a ‘dangerous experiment,’ reports the indy100.

Blair, who was Labour leader from 1994 to 2007 and UK prime minister for ten years and – it’s important to state – did not appear to be joking, also said that Corbyn’s rise to the leadership did not represent a rejection of his brand of centrist politics in the party.

Choosing not to concern himself with either fact or opinion, Blair also said that people disliked him not for the Iraq War, but for winning three consecutive elections:

There are people who disagree with me for reasons that they say are to do with, say, Iraq, but actually are to do with the fact I won three elections for the Labour Party and they didn’t like it.

To be fair to Tony, he is right about the fact that people don’t like him or want to be associated with him.

The Independent have even provided this helpful chart to illustrate the point:

So that’s a pretty clear message then.

As for Blair’s suggestion that his unpopularity is down to the fact that he was popular enough to win three of the biggest popularity contests in the UK…

This second chart tells a different story:

So, while the biggest reason people dislike him is due to his stance on immigration, the second is – you got it – the Iraq war.

It’s almost as if ol’ Tony doesn’t really have a grip on reality anymore…
