People are saying the same thing after that final Peaky Blinders scene
Now, this would certainly change things.
Here's a spoiler alert...by order of the Peaky Blinders.
You know, just in case you haven't seen the season finale.
Season 4 of Peaky Blinders started with Tommy Selby blackmailing his way into receiving an OBE. It ended with him being elected as Labour M.P for Birmingham.
You could argue that he has more integrity, ambition, and brains than most of the people in Westminster, but everyone's entitled to their own opinion (Cough, cough)
All things considered, Tommy would make a pretty popular M.P. After all, he's a decorated war hero that saved lives during WWI. After coming home, he oversaw the remarkable growth and expansion of his business empire that includes pubs, bookies, restaurants, factories, distilleries and more.
In terms of local values, he's still a Brummie at heart and retains the love of the people in Small Heath.
Then again, he does have a few 'marks' on his record - people tend to frown on gangsters and murders - but he'd still get our vote!
In fact, plenty of people think the same. With the likelihood of a meeting with Al Capone on the cards, can Tommy commit to his new role as an M.P? We wouldn't put it past him!
The campaign to make Tommy the Prime Minister starts here.
After that final scene was aired, it's clear that Tommy has already got plenty of support.
Vote for Tommy.
If Labour win the next Genreral Election it will be down to Tommy Shelby. #PeakyBlinders

I wish Peaky Blinders had released that episode earlier in the year. Jezza would be PM by now.
‘So why did you vote Labour?’
‘Tommy Shelby has boss hair and fucks people up with a razor blade on his hat, and I feel that’s what this country needs’.

Oh my god. Tommy Shelby has turned into a left winger & a trade unionist. He's the dream man. Never has a TV show ever had such a pleasing last episode. The only way this could get any better is if ended with a topless Tommy singing the red flag waving around a Labour Party card.

On the other side of things...
Genuinely wondering if the people I’ve seen on twitter raving about Tommy Shelby becoming a Labour MP have actually understood the plot properly.. 🤔 #PeakyBlinders

Going by searching the #PeakyBlinders hashtag the irony seems to be lost on quite a few Corbynites that Tommy Shelby's reward for infiltrating the socialist movement to betray the workers and prevent proletarian revolution is a seat as a Labour MP.
