This is what Blair had to say

Tony Blair has said he feels motivated to return to frontline politics, he has refused to rule out standing again as a Labour MP.

Blair believes Prime Minister Theresa May is not being reasonable when it comes to Brexit.

Blair said he “almost feels motivated to go right back into it” as a politician, he also said how Britain is being “hijacked” by Brexit backers.

The ex-Labour leader told BBC Radio 4’s The World This Weekend: “I feel for the first time since I first came into politics, I look at the British political scene at the moment and I actually almost feel motivated to go right back into it.

“I just feel we’re allowing ourselves to be hijacked by what is actually quite a small group of people with a very strong ideology.

“Someone like Theresa May, you look at her and she’s very sensible, very solid, she’s a perfectly decent person, I agree with a lot of what she says – what she says about energy costs today, most people would say ‘fair enough’.

“But on this issue, which is the biggest issue of our time and which will have a dramatic impact on our future, on our economy, on our living standards and on the younger people of this country, on this issue she’s not reasonable.”
