Mr Seddon reasons that it was actually John Smith who rescued the Labour Party. Tony Blair only came after all the hard work had been done and added an adjective to a party name. Mr Seddon would love nothing better than to see Tony Blair have as hard a time as possible in the next few years. And why is that? Because Mr Seddon and his ilk are wedded to sectarianism and old Labour partisanship in a way that the Tory right can only dream of.
