So I'm richer than you
Yeah, but you didn't rule a whole Nation
and anyway I'm also a multi-millionaire
But Dad, aren't you a Socialist
Shush sonny, don't even go there
do I look like some envy-ridden
semi-illiterate blinded idiot to you
but Dad I could swear you said you are
No, no, no I am a centrist, you know
the sensible ones, the Realist, we drink champagne
and shop at Harrods and make wealth, and yes we
do tax the rich but also show them how to avoid
paying too much, we are not politicians for nothing
hey Dad, what about all those millions of poor people
thought you are working class and have these peoples
Listen sonny, I am nothing of the sort, how dare you
I am middle-class, went to Oxford, practised Law,
worked hard, aspired, have great leadership qualities
and I amcharming and personable, working class my Rolex

Dad, do you think they will start harassing me and giving me grief

Dad, I don't go to the pub, I go to Nobu or The Ivy!

By quite a way.
According to reports, the Yale graduate and former Morgan Stanley banker has just bought and moved into a £22m, five-storey townhouse in west London, featuring an “iceberg basement” with a swimming pool, 50-foot reception room and a lift for his fleet of expensive cars. The palatial seven-bedroom pad is reportedly more than double the value of his father’s £10m London pad.
In his maiden speech in the House of Commons on 6 July 1983, Blair stated, "I am a socialist not through reading a textbook that has caught my intellectual fancy, nor through unthinking tradition, but because I believe that, at its best, socialism corresponds most closely to an existence that is both rational and moral ...
