UK's Tony Blair Argues Voters Deserve Another Say on Brexit

Thursday, 04 January 2018 06:37 AM

LONDON (AP) — Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is pressing his view that voters should be given a chance to re-think Brexit once plans for Britain's 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.

He said: "I'm simply saying one very, very simple thing, which is that in 2016 you knew you wanted to get out of the European Union but you didn't see the terms of the alternative relationship. If when you see those terms you think it is better to stick with Europe you are entitled to have that say."

Blair said Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's pro-Brexit strategy is misguided.
