Blair said: "The French and Germans share some of the British worries, notably around immigration, and would compromise on freedom of movement".

"European leaders, after discussions that I have had, are willing to consider changes to go in the direction of the United Kingdom, including the freedom of movement". On freedom of movement, the principle is indivisible. Shortly after last year's referendum, Blair said Britain should keep its options open because the will of the people could change over time.

"The Corbyn enthusiasm, especially amongst the young, is real, but I would hesitate before saying that all those who voted Labour voted to make him prime minister, or that they supported the body of the programme rather than its tone".
