Tony Blair says stopping Brexit more important than Labour winning next election | The Independent

‘I think this principle’s too important … I would put it above everything else right now for the country’

Labour should prioritise stopping Brexit ahead of winning the next election, Tony Blair has said.

The former Prime Minister said the party would “be saying what’s right” if it came out in opposition to the UK leaving the EU, and suggested the stance would also expose divisions within Conservative ranks.

He added he believed that “stopping Brexit is the route to win power” for Labour, and rejected the idea that accepting the referendum result was necessary to avoid the risk of losing support in former industrial heartlands.

When asked in The Guardian whether he agreed support for Brexit was a sacrifice worth making to win, he replied: “I don’t actually. No. I think this principle’s too important.”

He added: “I’d like to see a Labour government in power. But I think the key national priority right now is stopping Brexit. I would put it above everything else right now for the country.”
