Blair: Cor­byn’s lead not enough

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

Labour should be 15 to 20 points ahead of the Con­ser­va­tives in the polls given the “mess” the UK Gov­ern­ment is in, Tony Blair has said.

The for­mer PM, a long-stand­ing critic of Jeremy Cor­byn, praised the way the Labour leader had run this year’s Gen­eral Elec­tion cam­paign but warned the party’s pop­u­lar­ity was way be­hind where it should be.

He said: “I pay trib­ute to the cam­paign he ran. I think he showed a lot of char­ac­ter, he’s gen­er­ated a lot of en­thu­si­asm. I buy all of that. But I still say, come on guys, we should be 15 to 20 points ahead at this stage.”
