Tony Blair wants to return to British politics because he thinks he is needed, The Sunday Times reported.
The Times make reference to “a source” close to the former Prime Minister who says the former Prime Minister is planning to return to British politics in order to fill in a vacuum.
Blair apparently thinks the current leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, is “a nutter” and the Prime Minister, Theresa May, is “a lightweight.”
To return to Westminster, Blair is planning to rally former members of his cabinet, but it is unclear whether he is planning to split the Labour Party or make a bid for its leadership.
Meanwhile, Blair believes that the Prime Minister is not handling Brexit properly.
The government in his few is not able and does not have a plan to guarantee access to the single market without various obligations that go with that membership. Because that is clear, the government is probably heading for a so-called “hard Brexit,” which means no access to the single market, which entails incalculable economic and social restructuring costs. And he believes he can lead the Remain campaign into a new “revolt.”
