Tony Blair: Brexit Vote Was Over Immigration ‘Anxiety’

Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” discussing the people of Great Britain voting to leave the European Union,  former Prime Minister Tony Blair said the vote was, in part, a “popular revolt” because of “anxiety and concern” about immigration.

Blair said, “We believe it’s important economically and politically, once we separate ourselves out that’s going to be very difficult. But yes, you’re right. You know, particularly on the issue of immigration, there was a huge amount of anxiety and concern about that. I personally don’t think we will deal with that concern by leaving Europe. But undoubtedly, it was a popular revolt against those who have taken this common position across the political spectrum for many years.”
