Useless, totally useless. He didn't do a thing for locals, used it as a platform and only stood originally to oust a high profile Labour MP (Oona King) who was actually a pretty good local MP.
King was one of the original Blairs' babes, and it was ultimately her support of the Iraq war which cost her her seat. You have to question that judgement given the huge Bangladeshi Muslim community which she represented, not to mention some of the poorest constituents in the country. If you remember the mood of the country back then, newspaper polls were showing 70% against the war, a million people marched against it and Blair received a standing, slow clap ovation from the Women's Institute

As an MP you would have had to have been mad, bad or deluded to have voted for that war.
