Tony Blair back to battle Brexit

Tony Blair, is to engage wholeheartedly in the debate surrounding Britain’s exit form the European Union.

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.

The former PM refrained from criticising current leader Jeremy Corbyn and said he was unsure if his return to the political fray would be universally popular.
