Tories want us to see them as "heirs to Blair" again for some reason

In 2005 David Cameron announced "I am the heir to Blair". Then later, I think, he realised this was not a good thing to be and all talk of the Blair legacy project was abandoned.

It seems strange, then, that the Tories now seem to be once again flirting with the idea of being the "heirs to Blair", as evidenced by Dr Strangelove's Michael Gove's interview in the Guardian yesterday when he said: "We are carrying forward the Blair agenda" and added that he was intending to do with primary schools what Lord Adonis wanted to do but was stopped from doing by Gordon Brown (i.e turn about 20% of them into academy schools).
