Tony Blair 'applauds' Renzi reforms

Hails Italy premier as 'brave new European leader'

(ANSA) - Rome, November 26 - Former British prime minister Tony Blair on Wednesday praised Premier Matteo Renzi on the day after his signature Jobs Act cleared a major hurdle towards becoming law after it was approved by Italy's Lower House.
    "Renzi is one of the new European leaders that has the courage to change," the former Labour leader told Sky TG24 in an interview.
    "I applaud what he is doing, which is absolutely right for Italy and for Europe. It's hell when you first make the changes, but afterwards you wish you'd made more of them".
