Tony Blair could be about to return to politics after reports emerged that he plans to set up a new organisation in the wake of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump.
The former Prime Minister is allegedly planning to restore the integrity of the centre left as a political force by creating the new group next year.
As The Sunday Times reports, Blair was inspired to create the organisation after disagreeing with “weak” Prime Minister Theresa May. He also allegedly branded Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn a “nutter”.
A source told the paper: “He’s not impressed with Theresa May. He thinks she’s a total lightweight.
“He thinks Jeremy Corbyn’s a nutter and the Tories are screwing up Brexit. He thinks there’s a massive hole in British politics that he can fill.”
Blair will allegedly relocate 130 new members of staff to offices in Westminster in 2017 to launch his return to politics.
Tony Blair served as Prime Minister for ten years. He defeated Conservative leader John Major in the 1997 general election and was succeeded by Gordon Brown in 2007.
He recently dismissed talk that he’ll take on an advisory role for President Elect Donald Trump. The former Labour leader quit his formal role as a Middle East envoy in 2015.
