Tony Blair will call on Friday for a nationwide campaign by European Union supporters against a “Brexit at any cost”, claiming that Theresa May’s agenda is being dictated by hardline Eurosceptics.
He will argue that the public has the right to to change its mind over leaving the EU if it becomes clear that Mrs May plans to drive Britain “over the cliff’s edge”.
The former Labour Prime Minister will attack the Government for hardening its stance over Brexit in recent months by ruling out continued membership of the single market and the customs union.
“This is a Government for Brexit, of Brexit and dominated by Brexit.
It is a mono-purpose political entity,” Mr Blair will say in a speech organised by the campaign group Open Britain.
“The policy is now Brexit at any cost”
Tony Blair “Those driving this always wanted a hard Brexit.
Indeed even the term ‘hard Brexit’ requires amendment. The policy is now Brexit at any cost.”
