Tony Blair has refused to rule out a return to British politics in an interview in which he predicts that the centre ground will rise again in the Labour party. The former prime minister said he is still trying to find a political role which will help the party to become electable. In an interview with Esquire magazine, he said the centre of British politics will rise again and he does not rule out a role in that rise. “I don’t know if there’s a role for me,” he said. “There’s a limit to what I want to say about my own position at this moment. All I can say is that this is where politics is at. Do I feel strongly about it? Yes, I do. Am I very motivated by that? Yes. Where do I go from here? What exactly do I do? That’s an open question.
