Tony Blair Thinks 'Jeremy Corbyn Is a Nutter' So He's Returning To Politics

Tony Blair Thinks 'Jeremy Corbyn Is a Nutter' So He's Returning To Politicsby

WHY BLAIR’S COMEBACK IS LOOKING EVER-MORE LIKELY

Love him or hate him, former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair arguably altered the Western political climate during his ten-year run as the head of state for Great Britain – and new headlines have recently capitalized on supposed movements surrounding the statesman making a return to British politics, at a time when the Labour Party is arguably at its most fractious. Under Jeremy Corbyn, while the party has seen a surge in support from the liberal and left wings, MPs have voiced their lack of confidence in their leader in the form of renewed leadership elections and cabinet walk-outs – and yet, thanks to immense support from members of the party and the public who put him there in 2015, Corbyn is hanging on – despite the cracks in Labour that have been widely reported in the media.

Blair is pro-Europe, and was previously thought to be eyeing a return to the political epicenter of the UK to be able to offer his stance on the issues that have been dividing the country in recent months – namely, Brexit. The Independent quotes an alleged source (via The Sunday Times) advising that Blair is in fact looking to ‘fill a hole’ in British politics, and that he is therefore allegedly eyeing a move back to Westminster. The source further alleges that Blair thinks Corbyn ‘is a nutter’ – while a representative for the ex-Prime Minister refuted such claims that he will be moving his company nearer to parliament.

It’s not the first time that rumors have rumbled regarding Blair’s possible return to frontline politics even in recent months – the statesman has reappeared in the news various times this year not only giving his direct thoughts on Brexit (and that a second referendum to honor the will of the people should be launched), but also as a result of a damning verdict from the Chilcott Enquiry – where Blair’s decisions surrounding the Iraq war were publicly criticized. Despite this, he has advised that he maintains he acted in what he believed to be good faith.

It’s been a rather busy year for politics on both sides of the Atlantic – but is there truth behind the rumors that Blair might be aiming to rebuild Labour from scratch? Stranger things have happened – this year, certainly – but whether or not he will be accepted back into the political fray by the voting public will certainly remain to be seen.
