I think Blair's lost it ... he can talk to whoever he wants, but 70% of people want the government to get on with Brexit
– Nigel Farage
This morning Nigel Farage told Piers and Susanna he is unhappy about the way the Brexit talks are progressing, and once more called for a hard Brexit. This comes as the second round of Brexit negotiations resumes today.
Farage criticised Tony Blair's recent comments, proclaiming the former PM has ‘lost it’.
Blair made headlines this weekend after saying in an interview that it is ‘absolutely necessary’ that Brexit does not happen because of the ‘damage’ the Leave vote is already causing the UK. He added that he believes public opinion is ‘moving’ making it ‘possible’ for Brexit to not happen
Farage said ‘Brexit will happen. But what's happened is that it's been redefined. It couldn't have been clearer, we voted for hard Brexit and now we're getting a replay of the debates that happened during the referendum.’
