Synopsis: Mr Blairs Messiah Politics: Or what happened when Bambi tried to save the world shows how a personal sense of mission led Tony Blair to concentrate power in his own hands as he re-imagined Britain from top to bottom before going on to save the world. In seeking to fight third-world poverty, tackle climate change and topple tyrannies, Blair has framed goals that truly merit the term messianic. Blair's Messiah Politics mixed idealism with ballot-box cunning. Bemused and outwitted, the media became a tool of the PM. New Labour's careerist party ceded power to the great vote-winner. The electorate was charmed by his disingenuous earnestness. The institutions of state became subservient to the whims of Number 10. Along the way, we have seen an actor-manager play the ardent campaigner, the world-weary statesman, the Therapist-in-Chief. Manager, missionary, military leader: these roles have all suited Tony Blair. This book shows us how to avoid a future Tony Blair: the public needs to be sceptical of personal power; MPs need to reassert their authority; Civil Servants need to rediscover their allegiance to the Crown. By these simple measures, we can guard against Messiah Politics, whether Blair's or anyone else's.
