Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair decide to Return to Politics
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has decided to return to politics as he took a prominent part in efforts against the Brexit.
On the 20th anniversary of his New Labour win on Monday, Blair told The Mirror that he is not intending to earn more from politics he explained that the key motivating factor behind his return to politics is to ensure the return of Britain to European Union.
The former leader, who led Labour to a triumph in 1997, said, “This Brexit thing has given me a direct motivation to get more involved in politics. You need to get your hands dirty and I will… I am going to be taking an active part in trying to shape the policy debate.”
“We don’t know yet what the final deal on Brexit will be. We are advocating a very simple British common sense position, which is to say, let’s see what the Tories come up with first.
“This is not about defying the will of the people. It is saying the will of the people may change when they see the final deal. My prediction is it may take another generation but at some point we will want to be back in the EU — there is a direct link between the number of people and the size of an economy.”
Tony Blair “I know the moment I stick my head out the door I’ll get a bucket of wotsit poured all over me, but I really do feel passionate about this.”
