  • Tony Blair: EU leaders are willing to 'accommodate' Britain in Brexit talks

Setting out the huge difficulties ahead, Mr Barnier said: "How do you build a relationship based on trade and security to last with a country where you don't have trust?"

The CBI, which represents 190,000 United Kingdom businesses, has been emboldened in its calls for a softer Brexit since Prime Minister Theresa May lost her parliamentary majority in June's general election, which many saw as a loss of her mandate for a hard Brexit. It is also a Brexit that a majority of the young professional people who rejected us the ballot box last month might be willing to live with. On Thursday afternoon, Davis and Barnier should hold a news conference, to fix publicly what has been agreed so far.

And Jeremy Corbyn said: "It seems quite extraordinary that we're having varying accounts coming out of every Cabinet meeting about who said what to who and at what point in the meeting they said it, and everybody saying nothing actually happened".

Britain's Brexit secretary, David Davis, will be in Brussels on July 17 with his European Union counterpart, Michel Barnier, for four days of talks.

Mr. Blair says he feels sorry for Prime Minister May, who he described as somebody who is now surrounded by politicians eager to 'throw her off the ledge'.

Hard to say. Britain has always been an island power, off the coast, but European by geography. It is also unhappy at Britain's refusal to accept European Union judges as ultimate arbiters of disputes - an issue that could get an early airing as London seeks a quick fix to prevent its withdrawal from the Euratom pact disrupting its nuclear industry and medical imaging.

Now the Brexiteers have turned on the government they forced into a situation it did not want and are demanding the impossible.

Tony Blair argues that the election of the French president Emmanuel Macron has changed the european dynamic. But British diplomats will try to exploit divergent interests among the 27, using Britain's hefty economic clout.

"I haven't heard too much about strong and stable since June 8, and the only coalition of chaos I see is when I sit on our front bench and look across the aisle". Nearly all these consequences have, to a lesser or greater degree, materialised at this early stage in the Brexit negotiations.

Blair, a committed Christian who since leaving office has advocated for faith around the world, says in an interview with Sky News to be broadcast tomorrow that it is has insisted it is "absolutely necessary" that Brexit does not happen. "I think they thought that the likelihood was that the Tories would be the government, but were determined to neuter the mandate".
