Bill Clinton and Tony Blair plan to team up, and instruct the British people together to vote to remain inside to European Union (EU).
The former Democratic president of the United States and once Labour Prime Minister of Britain were close allies when in office, both strong proponents of a corporatist, pro-globalisation new brand of “third way” centre-left politics.
Mr. Clinton’s visit is intended to reinforce the message delivered by President Obama two weeks ago. He claimed the UK would go to the “back of the queue” for future trade deals if it left the EU.
Mr. Clinton’s itinerary cannot be confirmed until his wife, Hillary Clinton, is certain she has secured the Democratic nomination for the presidential election in November. One source said, however, told the Times: “We expect this will happen”.
