Ex- Prime Minister of Britain
Tony Blair Institute
Tony Blair served as the Labour Party’s leader from 1994 to 2007 and was elected as the Prime Minister of the UK in 2007. While he was the leader of the Labour Party the group used the term “New Labour” to disassociate the party from previous and traditional labour policies. What this essentially did was move the party further away from its left-wing past and closer to the centre of the political spectrum. Before ascending to the role of prime minister Blair served as a Labour MP for Sedgefield.
Since resigning as prime-minister Blair has been in the limelight for the part he played in the 2003 invasion of Iraq which as it turns out was an illegal war. Many think he should’ve been and still should be charged with war crimes. He held the position of official Special Envoy to the Quartet on the Middle East until 2015. In December 2016 he set up the non-profit organisation Tony Blair Institute for Global Change, which aims to promote a global viewpoint.
Ex-Prime Minister of the UK and once the star of British Politics, Tony Blair came out in support of the Remain campaign in 2017. He warned through several platforms about the potential perils of leaving the European Union, although some political analysts say his involvement might have actually harmed the cause.
His national image has not been the same since the Iraq war and that could alledgedly could have alienated younger voters, who in turn refrained from voting in the referendum.
He has publically stated that he is working to reverse Brexit. He called out for European leaders during the Brexit campaign to speak up for the Remain campaign, arguing that Brexit will will harmful for Europe as well.
