Blair Says 50/50 Chance of Second Brexit Vote, Urges Labour to Block Deal

Tony Blair believes Britons would welcome a second referendum on European Union (EU) membership that could block Brexit, claiming there is a 50 percent chance of it happening.

The Former Labour Prime Minister also said Theresa May is unlikely to get her Chequers Brexit plan through parliament, urging Labour MPs to vote against it.

“I still believe it is possible that Brexit is stopped, I think there is no majority in parliament for any proposition that the prime minister brings back,” Blair said, adding that he wanted a second referendum.

“For my perspective, to be blamed for Brexit when I neither supported the referendum or supported Brexit is a little bit tribal, unreasonable, I would say,” he added.

Mr Blair claimed Brexit would damage the UK because European leaders would want to strip finance jobs from the UK when it leaves the bloc.
