Tony Blair told Sky News that the dispute between the UK and European Union was an irresolvable problem. The former Prime Minister added that the UK being out of the single market and maintaining the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland without friction was a complete inconstancy. 

Mr Blair said: “On one level, it is an irresolvable problem.

“I think the only way they are going to resolve it is to get down to real brace tax on the practical issues.

“And to see whether Northern Ireland can in any way keep aligned with European regulation.

“There may be areas where it really does not matter so much for Britain also to be in line with European regulation in order to protect that border.

“But you cannot resolve that matter, it is just not possible because there is a complete inconsistency between taking the UK out of the single market and keeping the border without friction between north and south Ireland.

“So you have to look at practical solutions instead.”
