    Tony Blair became "obsessed" with creating a British football league as a way of bringing the UK together, the former prime minister has revealed.


    Mr Blair said he believed merging the Scottish and English leagues would strengthen the bonds between the two nations after devolution.

    But he said a British national football team would have been a "step too far".

    Mr Blair was speaking to BBC Scotland to mark the 20th anniversary of the devolution referendum.

    Bring Britain together?

    Fucking idiot, I can see Leeds, Dippers etc all having a great time standing side by side on the terracing.

    Always been out of touch with the real world. The euphoria of him taking power from the Tories lasted about 2 weeks.
