The Guardian: Tony Blair calls on remainers to 'rise up in defence of our beliefs'17 February 2017 | 04:47 | FOCUS News Agency
The former prime minister will make the statement at his first big speech since the EU referendum, arguing that people were misinformed when they voted for Brexit.
“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 is expected to say. “Our mission is to persuade them to do so.”
His intervention is likely to be highly controversial at a time when Theresa May has criticised those seeking to deny the “will of the people” as reflected by the EU referendum vote on 23 June 2016, and when Labour’s leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has pledged not to block the triggering of Brexit.
