A BORIS Johnson-led Tory Government would beat Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour in an election, Tony Blair has declared.

The former Labour PM said the ex-Foreign Secretary was a “formidable campaigner”. And he predicted victory for the Tories under him if Labour retains Jeremy Corbyn’s “revolutionary” politics.

Speaking to left-leaning website Huffington Post, he said: “If you have a Boris Johnson led Conservative Party, he’s a formidable campaigner, he’s an interesting personality, he can get out there and do his stuff, for sure.

“I have absolutely no doubt if you have a right wing populism against a left wing populism in this country, the right wing will win.”

But he added any Tory would have to be “certifiable” to fight an election under the “shadow of Brexit”.

The ex-PM added that he believed Chuka Umunna’s new Independent Group could do well in any European Elections because so many votes “don’t feel very satisfied by either political party”.


“If I was in the Tory party today I would really worry at the degree to which the Tory party is being defined as a narrow, nationalist party.”

Mr Blair also expects that if it came to it, the right wing would win against left wing populism in the UK
