Ex-PM Blair announces comeback to fight BrexitFormer British prime minister Tony Blair on Monday announced a return to domestic politics to fight Brexit, while acknowledging he remains a divisive figure whose contribution may not be welcomed. The former Labour leader will not be standing in the June 8 general election, but said he wanted to get his “hands dirty” and help shape the debate as Britain prepares to enter negotiations on leaving the EU. Blair won a record three elections as Labour prime minister and spent 10 years in Downing Street from May 2, 1997 to 2007.
