Tony Blair to call for Britons to "rise up" against Brexit

17-02-2017

Tony Blair is to announce his "mission" to persuade Britons to "rise up" and change their minds on Brexit.
According to the BBC, the former British prime minister will say in a speech later today that people voted in the referendum "without knowledge of the true terms of Brexit". 

He is expected to say he wants to "build support for finding a way out from the present rush over the cliff's edge". 

But former Cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith said Mr Blair's comments were arrogant and utterly undemocratic. 

Downing Street has said it is "absolutely committed" to seeing Brexit through.
