London: Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s 28-year-old son Euan wants to stand for elections as a Labour MP, following in his father’s footsteps, reveals a report.

According to the Daily Mail, a family friend said: “Euan has been thinking about a career in politics for some time. Cherie is particularly pleased. She likes the idea of a Kennedy-style Blair dynasty.”

Friends have said that Euan is eager to improve his Labour credibility by taking up a public sector post and he is believed to have left his job with investment bank Morgan Stanley.

According to Labour MP Tom Watson, the young Blair has shown commitment to the cause by knocking on doors in previous by-elections and is a ``genuine Labour activist``.

Earlier this month Euan had to walk past anti-war campaigners as he joined his father at a Labour Party fund-raiser with Ed Miliband.

It is not the first time Euan has hit the headlines. Twelve years ago, the police arrested him after he was found vomiting on a pavement in London. he had then been celebrating his GCSE results.

The news broke just days after Tony Blair had announced that he wanted to introduce spot fines for anti-social behaviour.

With Blair’s son planning to stand for elections, is it giving a hint that the Blairs are about to become a political dynasty.
