Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm not a Brit, but have my views on this: with a series of internal rule changes from when he gained party leadership in opposition (when his fangs weren't yet obvious), Bliar re-made the party into something very top-down. Candidates were vetted from above. A re-start as you describe it was made practically impossible. However, it may become impossible once the Bliarite and Brownite top dogs self-destruct.
