Blair v Corbyn. Labour's vacuum over Brexit

Eighteen months after voting 52% to 48% to withdraw from the EU, Britons remain deeply divided over leaving a bloc that has defined much of the country's laws, trade policy and worldwide outlook over more than four decades of membership.

Blair, Labour prime minister from 1997 to 2007, said Britain would be poorer and weaker, and he warned that May had solved none of the problems over Northern Ireland's post-Brexit status.

"We are making an error the contemporary world can not understand and the generations of the future will not forgive", wrote Mr Blair on the website of his Institute for Global Change.

However Lord Lamont, a former Tory Chancellor and prominent eurosceptic, said that Mr Blair is "delusional" and branded his blueprint as "project fear mark two".

A "Vote Remain" placard hangs from a public telephone box in London, U.K., on Thursday, June 23, 2016.

Describing 2018 as "the year when the fate of Brexit and thus of Britain will be decided", Blair is open about his opposition to leaving the European Union and argues that the 2016 referendum can not be seen as binding as it contained no detail on what a post-Brexit future would involve.

So far, opinion polls show little sign of a change of heart among voters on Brexit and it is unclear how it could be stopped if both major political parties support the divorce.

"Once that is put before the people, people are entitled to think again and indeed the common sense would be to say if the circumstances change and we then look at this new relationship and decide on reflection that that new relationship does not offer us a better way forward for the future of the country why shouldn't we be entitled to think again?"

"History will not forgive them", Tice told Reuters.

Blair, strong critic of Jeremy Corbyn and favorable to stay in the European Union, considered confusing the position of the Labour affiliates and invited them to demand more details on future links with the bloc, as well as criticize the errors of the Conservative administration.

"Make Brexit the Tory Brexit", he said in his article. Make them own it 100%.

The former three-term UK Prime Minister used the website of his think tank to say that Jeremy Corbyn's Labour would be "the handmaiden of Brexit" if it continued along its current path.

People from inside the party, as well as other opponents, criticised Corbyn for not campaigning strongly enough to keep Britain in the EU.

The former Labour leader told the BBC Radio 4 it was not "undemocratic" to have a vote on the terms of the final Brexit deal.

In his latest intervention on the country's "most important decision" since 1945, Mr Blair called for a second vote on whether the United Kingdom should leave the European Union when negotiations between the two sides are concluded.
