Although I’m on holiday in New Zealand, my wife and I debated this theme over dinner. Of course, we’re both biased, having been passionate Remain advocates.

Simply, Tony Blair makes good sense and he’s an extremely eloquent orator. But as the Economist argues, he’s had his day and brings a lot of baggage to the table. Nevertheless, if Blair has the drive and stamina to redeem himself publicly, I would support him on Brexit (and I’ve voted Conservative all my life). Sadly, I fear Blair’s had his day and we must still watch the Brexit pantomime unfold, knowing the result.
