Tony Blair calls for second vote to fix Brexit 'mess'

• https://www.yahoo.com, Alice RITCHIE

Blair, who held the office for 10 years, said he sympathises with Prime Minister Theresa May as she seeks to unite her party behind a plan for leaving the European Union, suggesting she has "the least enviable job in Western politics".

But the former Labour leader warned that with the scheduled date for Brexit approaching in March next year, it is time for her to admit "there's no way out" and call another referendum -- with the option of staying in the EU.

"Once this thing has been started by a referendum it can frankly only be finished by a fresh vote," he said.

Blair left office in 2007 and spent many of the following years abroad, including as an international envoy to the Middle East.
