The former prime minister said he would be“getting out more and reconnecting with voters,” as he fears for the economic well being of the UK post-Brexit.

Blair added that his wish to re-engage in the cut and thrust of national politics was not just his opposition to Brexit, but the rapid changes in the job market, the fragile economy and immigration.
