Will it be Sir Tony Blair?

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair is campaigning for Labour again and as a result William Hill are offering 10/1 that he will be knighted this year.

Presumably though Blair will only become a knight of the realm if he helps Labour to victory unless of course a newly-elected Conservative government reward their one-time nemesis for "helping" them to win the election.

It is widely known that Blair and Gordon Brown never had a great relationship so perhaps his involvement in the campaign could result in disputes between the current PM and his predecessor which could in turn actually help the Tories!

On the other hand for Labour, Blair can be backed at 25/1 to be in Gordon Brown's first cabinet of the next government, should Labour win.

'Gordon Brown seems to be taking a chance by bringing Tony Blair into the Election campaign, but maybe he wants him to remain involved should they retain power' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.

It is perhaps a sign of desperation from Brown as he seeks help to remain as PM from the man he so often tried to replace at Number 10.
