Share Politics: The chip shop champ
It's time to talk politics - and today, Tony Blair has made a Brexit-based comeback. Speaking in the City of London, the former Labour Prime Minister has urged pro-Europeans to "rise-up" against Brexit. Blair is arguing that voters didn't know the true cost of leaving. He's also laid the blame at the feet of his own party and said a "debilitated" Labour party has allowed Theresa May to pursue Brexit however she sees fit. What should we make of Blair's return? Can the cross-party, pro-European movement he hopes for really be mobilised? Simon and Ian Silvera, Senior Reporter at the International Business Times look at Blair's comeback, as well as Trump's erratic presser and Paul Nuttall: the chip shop champ.
