Tony Blair Says EU Could Be Flexible Over Movement

Some EU leaders may be prepared to be flexible on the free movement of people to help Britain stay in the single market, Tony Blair has said.
He told the Today programme one option was for Britain “staying within a reformed EU”.
The ex-PM said he would not disclose conversations he had had in Europe but that he was not speaking “on a whim”.
The government insists Brexit will give the UK greater control of its borders.
Mr Blair spoke to the BBC after he argued there was room for compromise on free movement of people in an article for his own institute.
