United Kingdom opposition party grassroots support second Brexit vote

Tony Bliar’ is the honest face of the Remainer elite

Labour will become "the handmaiden of Brexit" if it continues to prevaricate and be timid over the issue, Blair added.

Labour has backed Brexit and ruled out a second referendum if it wins power.

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.

TONY Blair has warned the European Union it could collapse if it fails to reform as he claimed populist uprisings like Brexit will spread to other countries.

Labour's official stance on Brexit gained new significance after last year's general election saw them perform better than expected. He has always been skeptical about his Labour leadership despite Corbyn increasing Labour's vote share by the largest margin for 70 years in last year's snap election.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4, Blair warned that voters would not find Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's approach to European Union withdrawal "credible".

"I can see a situation where the Labour party would annihilate the Tories if it went for the high ground, because it would also go right back into the fundamental division in the Tory party over the future of the country", said Blair.

Veneman Ann M sold $96,418 worth of stock or 700 shares. $16,800 worth of stock was sold by Wagner Heidi L on Monday, October 2. The total amount of shares outstanding is 223.21 million, giving the company a market capitalization of about 27.34 billion.

In an interview peppered with interruptions as John Humphrys challenged the former PM on his claims, Mr Blair urged the presenter to "let me finish" and "let me just explain" his case. But even tactically, it is mistaken.

"Labour could mount such a powerful assault on the government's record from the appalling state of the NHS to crime, which through neglect and failure to support the police is on the rise again, if we were saying to the country: here's the agenda which could be delivered for the people were it not for the fact that all the energies of government and substantial amounts of cash are devoted to Brexit".

Blair argues that the focus of May's government is on Brexit and that, by not opposing it, Labour are hamstrung in how they can attack her government's policies.

The data illustrate that May is beholden to her party members, which make up just a fraction of the electorate, which was split - 52 percent to 48 percent - in favor of Brexit in the referendum in 2016.

But ministers have already been forced to give parliament a greater say in the Brexit process than they initially wanted to after members of Mrs May's own party rebelled on the issue in December. "Show people why Brexit isn't, and never was, the answer", according to Sky News.

Blair's popularity in the United Kingdom was hit following his decision to take the country into the 2003 Iraq War and due to the arguments he made in its favour.

Morgan Stanley cautioned investors on November 26 that political uncertainty in Britain was a bigger threat than Brexit given the risk of Corbyn winning power and then dismantling what was once seen as one of the world's most stable free-market economies.
