EU Parliament President: Any Delay in Brexit Negotiations With UK Impossible

Mr Blair's latest lecture comes after he flooded the airwaves over the weekend as he launched a further attempt to block Brexit, saying it was "absolutely necessary" to stop Britain leaving the EU.

"The majority of British people voted to leave the EU".

Blair claimed Brexit would happen, but only if the will of the people didn't change; nodding to the fact that a second referendum might be on the cards.

The only reason it is not on the table is because the Tories fear old internal wounds would be reopened if Brexit does not happen, he said.

A week, as they say, is a long time in politics and if Nigel Farage delivered an quake to British politics so has Jeremy Corbyn.

In the BBC Radio 4 interview, he went on to suggest that Brexit - if followed by a government led by the current Labor party leader Jeremy Corbyn - would leave the United Kingdom "in a very serious situation".

"Rational consideration of the options would sensibly include the option of negotiating for Britain to stay within a Europe itself prepared to reform and meet us half way", he said. So I favour a three-year transition, starting in March 2019, in which we join the European Free Trade Association and become temporary members of the European Economic Area like Norway.

"Europe itself is now looking at its own reform program", Blair said.

With little more than a year to settle divorce terms before Britain leaves, deal or no deal, on March 30, 2019, the 27 other European Union national leaders want British Prime Minister Theresa May to rally her divided nation swiftly behind a clear, detailed plan that can minimize economic and social disruption across Europe as its second biggest economy cuts loose from the continent.

"The opposition to free movement of people, once you break it down, is much more nuanced". "The Labour party should be cautious in thinking "one more heave" will deliver victory next time", Blair said.

German and French voters would favour similar controls, the polling suggested.

"This is causing us real damage".

CBI chief economist Rain Newton-Smith said firms need more clarity and continuity to support investment. Young Britons, who mostly opposed "Brexit", will lose the right to live and work freely in Europe; export and finance industries face new costs; labs will lose funding and talent.

Blair's intervention was dismissed by the senior Labour backbencher Frank Field - one of the few Labour MPs to back Leave in the referendum.

In the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change website, Mr. Blair pointed out that just before the 2016 referendum, the United Kingdom had the fastest-growing economy in the G7 - today it is growing slower than all the others.

Britain's Brexit secretary, David Davis, will be in Brussels on July 17 with his European Union counterpart, Michel Barnier, for four days of talks.

"Secondly, I think although significant numbers of people for sure voted for him with enthusiasm, I think there were an very bad lot of people voted for him because they couldn't stomach the Tories and wanted to make a point".

Mr. Blair has made a number of appearances calling for BREXIT to be halted because of the damage he believes it will do to the United Kingdom.

Tony Blair says he now accepts Jeremy Corbyn could become prime minister.
