A spectre rises over Blair
A spectre may be about the haunt the Blairites: the spectre of the families of British soldiers killed in Iraq who are forming a new political party. The party - called Spectre - will contest up to 70 seats at the next election with the aim of unseating as many warmongers as possible. It is unlikely to win any seats, but if it can only eat into the Labour vote it may achieve its aim, which is to help destroy Blairism.
