Calls for Blair to go straight?

I see from today’s Grauniad that an unnamed backbencher calls for the Prime Minister to go straight after the May elections.

That seems a little unfair as it seems to assume he will be found guilty of some misdeed and have to go straight upon his subsequent release.

Still at least his mate John will press ahead with privatisation of the criminal justice system so he can enjoy both competitive incarceration and rehabilitation should it come to that.

Of course, if I have misread the punctuation and the comment is simply about the timing of Blair’s departure then I would simply observe that the Labour Party won’t benefit from that unless we also see a change of direction.
