TONY Blair desperately tried to mobilise fellow remainers to carry out a revolt against Brexit today when he called on Europhiles to “rise up in defence of what we believe”.
The former Labour prime minister suggested voters were lied to before they took to the polls, during his first big speech since the momentous EU referendum.
He said: “The people voted without knowledge of the true terms of Brexit. As these terms become clear, it is their right to change their mind.
“Our mission is to persuade them to do so.
Mr Blair’s scathing attack on democracy comes as Theresa May lambasts those seeking to deny the “will of the people” following Britain’s 52 to 48 per cent victory for the Leave camp.
But Mr Blair urged Remoaners to “expose relentlessly” the prime minister’s drive to push “Brexit at any cost”.
His sabotaging speech accused Mrs May of leading a “mono-purpose” Government for “Brexit, of Brexit and dominated by Brexit”.
Scaremongering Mr Blair also warned Britons they will “suffer a rancorous verdict from future generations” when issuing his rallying cry against Brexit.
The multimillionaire former Labour Party leader’s intervention has sparked fury among Brexiteers, including Iain Duncan Smith, who accused him of being “arrogant, undemocratic and deeply out of touch”.
