Part of me wants to write some excoriating piece about the arrogance of Tony Blair presuming to lecture the British people about Brexit. But then I realised that we want him and people like him to do that and keep doing that.
Blair personifies the political class - the non listening, arrogant, disdainful, sanctimonious, hypocritical class who run the EU and think they are right about everything. They think this even though, repeatedly, they have been shown to be wrong. The EU is the sort of ridiculous super quango that is created by the Tony Blairs of this world. Its why we voted to leave.
But please, Tony, keep lecturing us about why we are wrong and why you were right when you kept trying to take us into the euro or when you gave away our rebate or didn't bring in interim controls on eastern European immigration.
Blair has no idea about how much he is loathed. He is, in his own way, as delusional as Donald Trump.
