Tony Blair has been criticised for arranging to visit Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president, in the same week as the next round of Brexit negotiations.
British negotiators will be in Brussels on Monday for the third round of talks, which are expected to end on Thursday. Mr Blair, a former prime minister who supports Britain staying in the EU, will meet Mr Juncker on Thursday in the commission’s Brussels headquarters, where some of the discussions will be held.

The UKIP MEP said: “Blair’s interference and desire to sell out our country never stops.
