He wrote: "If a rightwing populist punch in the form of Brexit was followed by a leftwing populist punch in the form of unreconstructed hard-left economics, Britain would hit the canvas, flat on our back and be out for a long count".
He said Labour should end its "ambiguity" on Brexit and do more to differentiate its position from that of Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative government.
Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said, "The whole issue to do with Brexit is that we know why we left but we didn't know previous year what the terms of leaving would be".
"The Labour party should be cautious in thinking "one more heave" will deliver victory next time".
However, he also claimed his judgement hasn't changed over the "risks" if the left-wing veteran becomes prime minister, and suggested the "determining factor" in the recent election was the Tory campaign.
Corbyn rejected this. "I think our economy will do very well under a Labour-led government because it will be an investment-led economy that works for all", he told BBC News.

John McDonnell has accused Tony Blair of being out of touch with the "nature of the debate" when it comes to Brexit negotiations.

The survey, done in conjunction with Luntz Global Partners, found British voters ambivalent toward Europe and not wanting a second referendum on whether to stay or leave. But he called Brexit the biggest political decision since World War II.
"But they want a strong relationship with Europe".
The difference between a "hard" and "soft" Brexit comes down to whether the country merely has more autonomy within the Single Market and Customs Union, or makes a clean break from the EU altogether.
Overall, he concludes, the United Kingdom "is deeply divided - between young and old, metropolitan and outside the cities, better off and worse off".
