Andrew Marr bamboozled into Tony Blair for his love-in meeting with Jean-Claude Juncker while EU officials ridiculed Britain during Brexit talks.
In an astonishing exchange on the BBC Andrew Marr Display, he challenged the former Prime Minister by calling out his «allegiances» to those in Brussels.
The discussion came as Mr Blair called on the British Government to reopen negotiations to stop in the EU after he admitted that the country should «get tough» on migrants.

Marr took distribution with the former leader for his controversial meeting with the European Commission President in Brussels at the end of August.
He verbalized: «You have seen these negotiations and they are not going terribly smoothly spring, and you have gone to Mr Juncker and warmly embraced him.
«I mean, whose side are you on?»
Mr Blair hit abet: «I am on the British side, but the question is what is in the British interest.»
However, when crowded further, the former Labour leader admitted that he had not spoken to the British side of the Brexit talks, but longed them to «enlarge their options» — in particular, by re-negotiating membership inside the bloc.

Whose side are you on?
Mr Blair then happened on to encourage MPs to rebel against the will of the British people.
He said: «This is what each MP should do.
«Look at this decidedness as a different category to any other decision, where you would just meet the party whip.
«This is a decision that will change this motherland’s destiny. If you believe there is a better way through, better ways of bargain with the country’s problems than Brexit, then find the governorship within yourself and explain that to the British people! Make the disagreement.»
Later in the interview, Mr Blair struggled to defend his sudden tough bombast on immigration, after he was the leader who «opened up the doors to mass migration».
