Letter: Absolutely not a Conservative

IAN AITKEN says Tony Blair is no Tory and, as someone who witnessed the attacks made on Labour voters by the Wilson and Callaghan administrations of the 1960s and 1970s, I am prepared to believe him. The small "c" conservatism of Mr Blair on social issues and the big "C" conservatism on economics makes him an almost classical Old Labour prime minister. The charge against Mr Blair, is that he told us New Labour would be different. It isn't. It's just as much of a let-down as the Labour of old.
