OUR TORY PRIME MINISTER:

Tony Blair says Labour is too left wing and predicts Miliband will lose election to Tories (Sean Martin, December 31, 2014, IB Times)

Speaking to the Economist, the former PM said: "I am still very much New Labour and Ed would not describe himself that way, so there is obviously a difference there.

"I am convinced the Labour Party succeeds best when it is in the centre ground."

Once he was pushed by the magazine for a winner in the election, Blair conceded that it is likely to be the David Cameron-led Conservatives who will win power.

Blair also questioned Miliband's argument that the economic crisis had realigned the political grounds in the UK towards the left.

"I see no evidence for that. You could argue that it has moved to the right, not left," said Blair.
