London (UK): Former British prime minister Tony Blair said on Monday that he is returning to domestic politics to fight against Brexit and is ready to get his “hands dirty”. 

The 63-year-old former Labour party leader, however, made it clear that he will not contest the June 8 general election, according to Daily Mirror. He said he wants to have an influence on the negotiations of Britain’s exit from the 28-member European Union. 

Blair said he does not agree with Prime Minister Theresa May’s intention to leave the single market and seek out a free trade agreement, which would be “relegating” Britain from the top spot. 

Blair, who led the Labour Party from 1994 to 2007 but faced severe criticism over his decision to join the US-led attack on Iraq, said that he knows he would face criticism for plunging back into politics.
