This is the Blair/Clinton/Bush crowd for you. Fight the will of the people. Do the wrong thing with a smile and then with serious earnestness. Talk about “democracy.” Then drop some bombs. (Sometimes.)
Britons? They don’t pay as well.
Mr Blair urged voters to speak out against the government’s drive to exit the EU at any cost, saying it could damage future generations.
He argued last year’s vote to leave was “based on imperfect knowledge,” and that Britons voted without knowledge of the true terms of Brexit.
“As these terms become clear, it is their right to change their mind,” he said. “Our mission is to persuade them to do so.”
Mr Blair argued that leaving the 28-nation bloc was not inevitable and that the people favouring Brexit took advantage of a mood of revolt stemming in part from changes in the global economy.
