TONY Blair has once again popped up out of nowhere to give his highly sought-after political takes. 

In an interview with the Institute for Government think tank, the former PM took aim at Scottish independence supporters, comparing them to Brexiteers.

He said: “I always say that the arguments of the Brexiteers are very similar to the arguments of the Scottish nationalists ultimately. It’s just a misunderstanding of what nationhood really entails in the 21st century.”

Blair also warned a hard Brexit could push Scotland towards independence, but fear not Unionists. He's got the solution to help keep the United Kingdom together. It's amazing nobody has thought of it already! Of course ... it's been league football keeping us all divided this whole time. 

In the interview, Blair said: “People used to think it was a bit trivial when I used to say we should put the football leagues together … it’s just you need to find ways in which people are realising they have a lot in common, as well as space for the diversity of the UK. I’d do a lot more of that.

The National:

“I was very struck by the fact that once you did devolution and then you separated, even institutions like the BBC became separated in a very clear way. You just lost that sense of a common agenda that you are waking up to every day.

"Obviously, that’s now happened. We need to be thinking, we need to be more active and passionate in our defence of the Union. And maybe if one good thing comes out, once we get rid of this Brexit thing, is that we really need to think about what is the place of the UK in the world and why is it sensible for countries to be together in the UK.”

Okay lads. This could be the thing that fixes our broken political system. Who's bringing a ball?
