Tony Blair declares Britain is “in a mess”

Former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair believes Britain is in a mess.

And he believes neither his own party nor the Conservatives deserved to win the General Election on December 12th.

He said: “We’re a mess.

“The buoyancy of the world economy has kept us going up to now, but should that falter, we will be in deep trouble.”

Blair, who ran a centrist pro-business government, said that current party leader Jeremy Corbyn was promising a revolution.

“The problem with revolutions is never how they begin but how they end.

“The truth is: the public aren’t convinced either main Party deserve to win this election outright.”

Blair – who was in Downing Street from 1997 to 2007, has repeatedly called for Brexit to be reversed.
