Tony Blair and Jeremy Corbyn - UK POLITICS TODAY

“People talk about how you have to avoid those who feel strongly pro-Brexit, you have to avoid them rioting on the streets and this outburst of populism.”

“Okay, I understand that. And that’s why you’ve got to handle this issue, I agree, very, very carefully.”

“But let me just tell you this: if we go ahead and tumble out of the European Union with a no-deal Brexit of the sort that Farage and Boris Johnson and these people want, you are going to get a silent revolution in this country as well.”

“There are people who are going to feel so strongly about this, that I just say this to both main political parties – they’re going to sweep them away.”

“Nigel Farage and the people associated with him are not the people to drain the swamp – they are the people who created the swamp.”

“They have created this as if it’s the answer to our problems and it is literally the problem.”

“Brexit was “literally the answer to nothing” and “based on myth”.”

“It’s a fallacy because the soft Brexit Theresa May has tried to articulate and the Labour position won’t work.”

“That soft Brexit is never going to command anything other than a tiny amount of support.”

“The people who want Brexit will say it’s a betrayal and the people who want to remain will say it’s completely pointless.”

“I do come across people who cannot vote for Labour, in which case I say, ‘don’t stay at home – vote for any of the other parties’.”

“At the end of this there’s going to be a totting up and… it’s important that the Remain side comes out because MPs will be making decisions based on that. Important the anti-Brexit side is larger and stronger than the Farage side.”
