Tony Blair confirms he is working on ‘reversing’ Brexit as chief Remoaner claims the deal Theresa May wants from the EU is ‘fundamentally un-negotiable’

TONY Blair has confirmed he is working on reversing Brexit as he claims the deal Theresa May wants from the EU is “fundamentally un-negotiable”.

The former Prime Minister and leading pro-EU voice will anger Brexiteers with his latest comments on the referendum as he attacked the Government for pursuing a strategy which risks “the worst of both worlds”.

Tony Blair still insists Brexit is reversible and claims deal Theresa May wants is ‘fundamentally un-negotiable’
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s The World This Weekend programme he said of our vote to leave: “It’s reversible. It’s not done until it’s done.”

Asked if his purpose in relation to Brexit was to reverse it, Mr. Blair replied: “Yes, exactly so.”

He rejected the argument that he was defying the will of the people by arguing voters deserve a second referendum because the “£350million per week for the NHS” promise has now been exposed as untrue.

Mr. Blair added: “The will of the people is not something immutable. People can change their mind if the circumstances change.”
Comments come as Mrs. May prepares to travel for a showdown lunch with Brussels bosses tomorrow
His comments come as Mrs. May prepares to travel for a showdown lunch with Brussels bosses tomorrow as she tries to finally move the talks on to the next stage.

But Mr. Blair said: “What the government is trying to negotiate is fundamentally un-negotiable.

“They are trying to negotiate getting out of the single market while recreating all of its benefits. That’s not going to happen.”

He said the conflicting priorities of maximising access while getting legal distance would produce a “series of compromises” with a risk of “the worst of both worlds”.

And Mr. Blair claimed the ongoing wrangle over Northern Ireland and Brexit could threaten peace in the province.
