Blair calls to revese Brexit


Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair will reveal his “mission” to persuade people to “rise up and change their minds” on Brexit on Friday, arguing that the vote to leave the European Union is a threat to the future of the country.

In his first major political intervention since the vote last June, Blair will issue a declaration on Friday to opponents of Brexit, saying there was little clarity over what the vote meant when the referendum took place, and that the government was set on “Brexit At Any Cost”.

“The people voted without knowledge of the true terms of Brexit. As these terms become clear, it is their right to change their mind,” he will say to pro-European group Open Britain.
