Martin Kettle and Matthew Parris think so.
Blair's timing in leaving was brilliant, as ever. The economic good times for capital, a product of the credit boom, cheap Chinese goods and low cost-inflation (partly thanks to mass immigration), seem to be over. He stepped off the deck just as the rising water was at a comfortable level.
If only his political genius could have been used in a good cause ! Think what he could have done if, say, he'd been Prime Minister for ten years !
As ever, the great glory is reading the comments by demoralised Labour supporters. If one's country is going to be ruined, one may as well extract such sour amusement as offers itself.
