Another intervention from Anthony Charles Lynton Blair (call me Tony)

Brexit followed by Corbyn in No 10 would put UK flat on its back. says Tony Blair

With monotonous regularity, Tony Blair ventures forth onto the political scene, this time through a lengthy article released by his own political institute, the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.
(Are the mainstream media becoming so fed up with Blair interventions that he has to now rely on his own propaganda machine?)

dedicated to making globalisation work for the many, not the few.  
It never ceases to amaze me that if he is so undoubting of his own interpretation and understanding of this and all the other issues where he consistently makes interventions, why does Blair not have the backbone to formally create and launch his own political party? It is reported that he has substantial finacial backing from anonymous sources, plus his own £ millions accumulated since his time in office. There is also much speculation that Blair has many supporters within the Labour party, though perhaps not as many as Blair would like to believe and certainly fewer than some elements of the media have been suggesting over recent months.
Blair and his regular contrived interventions, are becoming something like a fly managing to avoid the fly swat, more of an irritant than a relief. Interventions which repeatedly only bring into question his motivation and his credibility.
If he so passionately beleives that only he has the solutions to our problems, arguing, as he does, that a deeply divided country needs a fundamental rethink of its political ideas, he should "get off the fence" and do something to put his plans into effect.
Or perhaps it is that Blair is not as popular as Blair thinks he is.
