Today Tony Blair spoke today about the EU. This, obviously, has nothing to do with his long term ambition to become the first directly elected President of the EU. It is also completely coincidental that he has set up a Twitter account to refer solely to his work on the EU.
What he said today was complete nonsense, after all. He called euroscepticism a ‘virus’ and put up the same straw man arguments we anticipated and cut down one by one on The Commentator website yesterday. You can view the article here.
We say, bring it on Blair. When the Great British Public see you back in politics, they’ll be even more persuaded to leave the EU.
