Tony Blair: EU leaders are willing to 'accommodate' Britain in Brexit talks

Blair, who is making a partial comeback to frontline British politics, said it is "possible" Corbyn could sweep into Downing Street following two years of political upsets across the western world, including Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. The ex-prime minister also said he was ready to return to the political arena in the name of preserving British interests and European Union ties with Britain.

'Secondly, I think although significant numbers of people for sure voted for him with enthusiasm, I think there were an bad lot of people who voted for him because they couldn't stomach the Tories and wanted to make a point.

"By calling for the will of the people and Parliament to be overturned, Tony Blair is demonstrating once again that he is out of touch".

On Sunday, finance minister Philip Hammond, an advocate for a transition to Brexit, said most ministers now agreed with him: "Five weeks ago the idea of a transition period was quite a new concept".

However, Blair still reiterated that a "hard-left economic programme" would leave the United Kingdom in "real trouble" after Brexit, and suggested it was the poor Tory campaign more than Labour's actions which delivered the surprise election result. But I now believe I owe it to my constituents to state clearly what I think is the best approach, when a misstep could make the difference between triumph and disaster.

"I understand why she thinks 'Look, the people have spoken, my job is to deliver that verdict". "I'd like to see more leadership and less followership, ' he said".

"[BREXIT is] a disastrous mistake for the country".

"I think it's absolutely necessary that it doesn't happen because I think every day is bringing us fresh evidence that it's doing us damage economically, certainly doing us damage politically".

Mr Barnier, who has made clear that he is not prepared to start talks on a trade deal until there has been sufficient progress on the financial settlement, retorted icily he could not hear any whistling, "just the clock ticking". "Incomes are stagnating. The global reputation of Britain is rapidly losing altitude". We might also want to negotiate a transitional extension of our membership of the Customs Union, to give ourselves time to agree new frictionless customs arrangements for industries with integrated pan-European supply chains.

The former Labour PM said Leave voters in the North were wrong to vote Brexit because it will make them poorer and claimed they lacked the right information during the referendum campaign previous year.
