Blair warns that general election would be an elephant trap
Former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair has dished out warnings to the leader of the Labor Party, Jeremy Corbyn and his team to vote against a general election if the current Prime Minister, Boris Johnson calls for one. In a major speech delivered on Monday, the former Prime Minister said that a second referendum would be the best way to prevent the UK from leaving the EU without a deal.
According to Mr. Blair, a general election would be an elephant trap for Labor because the Conservatives are actively preparing for such. Mr. Blair explained that Brexit is an issue on its own, originally decided on its own and should be reconsidered on its own, that if the government tries to force an election, Labor should kick against it.
