Blair The Leaver Plots To Remain

Theresa May accused Tony Blair of undermining the UK national interest as he seeks to subvert the Brexit process. May launched a blistering attack on Blair, who was elected as an MP on his manifesto accusation of the EEC draining natural resources and destroyed jobs. She accused the former Labour PM of insulting the British people with his shifty attempts to thwart the referendum result.

And she bluntly reminded him it was his own open-door immigration policy which spurred millions to vote leave. Mrs May’s patience snapped after an exhausting week of clashes with MPs and Eurocrats blocking her departure deal.

In an astonishing broadside, she lashed out at her predecessor’s treacherous trip to meet EU chiefs in Brussels while Brexit talks were taking place. She raged “There are too many people who want to subvert the process for their own political interests rather than acting in the national interest.

“For Tony Blair to go to Brussels and seek to undermine our negotiations by advocating for a second referendum is an insult to the office he once held and the British people he once served. We cannot, as he would, abdicate responsibility for this decision. Parliament has a democratic duty to deliver what the British people voted for”.

    • How nauseating is it for a deadbeat from long ago takes it on himself to decide that the electorate was wrong to vote as they wanted?
