Tony Blair wants to advise the next British Labor government – ​​POLITICO


Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair wants to advise the next Labor government, he told the New Statesman in an interview excerpts from which were published Thursday.

Asked by actor Michael Sheen if he would consider a fourth term as prime minister, Blair said he hoped the next Labor prime minister would be Keir Starmer, the current leader of the Labor Party.

Blair served as Britain’s prime minister between 1997 and 2007, making him his party’s longest-serving prime minister, but Britain’s role in the Iraq war, which began in 2003, cast a shadow over his legacy .

On whether he considered a return to British politics, Blair said: “Let’s just say I don’t think that path would be open to me even if I wanted to. So it’s not something I think about at all.

However, Blair added that he would like to help a future Labor administration with politics. “What I would like to do is help on the political side with the next Labor government,” he said.

“It has to be a platform that makes people believe the world is going to change, it just has to be the kind of change they’re not afraid of,” he said.

The Labor Party has been out of power in the UK since Gordon Brown’s term as Prime Minister ended in electoral defeat in 2010.
