Crowther – ‘Blair Taking Us All For Fools’
UKIP Interim Leader Steve Crowther (pictured above) has accused former Prime Minister Tony Blair of taking the British public for fools today, after his latest intervention claiming that Britain could now prevent freedom of movement without having to leave the EU. Speaking earlier this afternoon Mr. Crowther said
“Tony Blair’s latest intervention into the Brexit debate proves two things: that he is absolutely unaware of his own reputation in the country; and that he simply cannot stop taking the British people for fools.
“Talk of a ‘reformed EU’ being prepared to ‘meet us halfway’ is precisely the same nonsense that David Cameron was spouting before the Referendum. The EU had a chance to offer reform and meet us halfway before we voted, but they were too arrogant and complacent to do so.
“The signals they are now sending through Mr Blair and Mr Clegg show that the EU are not nearly as bullish about their strength in these negotiations as they have been pretending. Too little, too late – insultingly so.
“Which side in these negotiations is Mr Blair working for?”
