Tony Blair has revealed he was a student “Trot” and was inspired to enter politics by the extraordinary life of Russian revolutionary Leon Trotsky.

The former Prime Minister – who went on to reject traditional left-wing politics and argue for a “Third Way” – said he briefly held very different views while at Oxford University in the 1970s.

In a BBC Radio 4 interview, Mr Blair said he “toyed with Marxism” after picking up a biography of Trotsky after performing a gig with his student rock band Ugly Rumours.
