Tony Blair has said that there is ‘an urgent need for progressive politics to recapture its traction’, and that ‘I am really serious about remaking the centre-left in British politics’.
‘Post financial crisis, post 9/11, people want change. The stresses of globalisation are severe, but the change has got to be change that’s sensible and modern’.
‘This populism of the left and right, where the right essentially blame the immigrants and the left go anti-business, I mean this will not produce solutions’.
‘This is riding the anger, not providing the answers’.
‘I am unapologetic, even though it looks like the centre has been marginalised in British politics today, that it is the right solution, and I still think even after this election there are millions of disenfranchised people’.
