Skip to comments.UK's Tony Blair argues voters deserve another say on Brexit
Posted on 01/04/2018 10:50:22 AM PST by Olog-hai
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is pressing his long-held view that voters should be given a chance to re-think Brexit once plans for Britains departure from the European Union are clear.
Blair said Thursday that the Labour Party he led for 13 years should be actively challenging Brexit rather than going along with plans laid out by Prime Minister Theresa May and her Conservative Party allies.
Mays government is negotiating exit plans and the outlines of a new trade relationship with the EU with an eye toward departing the bloc by a March 2019 deadline. Blair and other opponents argue that voters should be able to review these terms and decide whether to go ahead rather than be bound by the 2016 referendum, which saw Britons back Brexit by a four-point margin.

Blair, the only Labour leader to win three consecutive general elections, said Labour leader Jeremy Corbyns pro-Brexit strategy is misguided. He said Corbyn and Labour should instead be branding the withdrawal from the EU which started with a referendum called by Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron to ease party divisions as the Tory Brexit to capitalize on growing public doubts about the process, caused in part by Britains slowing economic growth.

They had their say you twit and the people spoke
How about best two out of three? -— Tony Blair
It’s “settled law”, leftie.
Not the way it works, Tony.
Blair is generally hated in the UK so his support for Remain likely helps Brexit.
Dems keep voting until they get their way, and then it’s “settled law”.
The people voted “wrong” so the elites have been moving mightily to undo the vote. This is another step to force another vote that will be managed to assure that Britain stays in the EU.
Taking the new marching orders from the NWO again eh?
That’s how they got the fag marriage thing rolling. They did it inch by inch throughout the years.
I supposed Blair does not know what to do with himself since sucking up to Clinton is not a thing anymore.
Blair should be drawn and quartered and his head put on London Bridge for treason.
Keep voting until you get the results you want.
“Blair said Thursday that the Labour Party he led for 13 years should be actively challenging Brexit rather than going along with plans laid out by Prime Minister Theresa May and her Conservative Party allies.”
Proving once again that to lefties elections don’t matter, unless they win.
Yeah Tony, keep trying until you get the result you want. That’s what libs do.
They didn’t expect the result. Now the might be working hard at voter fraud to change the results. And keep calling for new elections until they have sufficient votes
Blair - the smarmy, globalist, self-serving, multi-culti, leftist, insists on voting until the proper result is obtained.
Against overwhelming, continuous, dawn to dusk propaganda railing against Brexit in the most asinine, insulting, and demeaning terms across every conceivable media outlet, including plenty of paid trolls, the “stay” side lost.
Did Blair argue the same after the many close votes in various nations that led to the creation of the EU in its present form?
