Blair Warns that Jeremy Corbyn Would be a “Dangerous Experiment”


Tony Blair, the former Labour Prime Minister from 1997 until 2007, has said that Jeremy Corbyn would be “a dangerous experiment” as Prime Minister.

Speaking to the BBC’s This Week’s World Blair said:

“It would be a very dangerous experiment for a major western country to get gripped by this type of populist policy-making, left or right”.

He added:

“I do think the centre ground needs to work out how it recovers, how it gets its mojo back, and gets the initiative back in the political debate because otherwise, these guys aren’t providing answers, not on the economy, not on foreign policy”.

Jeremy Corbyn’s office declined to comment.
