Tony Blair says stopping Brexit more important than Labour winning next election
‘I think this principle's too important ... I would put it above everything else right now for the country’

My view for what it is worth is, what point is there having Brexit but wanting to be closely linked to the EU for trade purposes and having to toe EU control and legislation to do so?
Might as well stay in and have a say on how it is run.
People are fickle and things change over time (even short periods of time), so if there was another referendum tomorrow, I have no doubt Remain would win by a large margin.
I can't see much point politicians saying they are doing what the public want - if the public as since changed its mind?
Yes, you could use my rationale against me and argue that if we had a referendum again and Remain won, then what's to say people wouldn't change their minds again and want Brexit another couple of years later?
I think the difference is, is that most people can see that Brexit isn't the end of the rainbow that some people thought and that it will (and has) hurt us all financially.
The Labour Party should be leading the fight as per its core belief for improving peoples life's.
It seems ridiculous to me that we have a Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition, and the vast majority of MP's who all voted Remain, with a country that is almost certainly now pro-Remain majority, looking to make us all worse off by pretending they are doing the democratic thing 'the voice of the people has spoken' when clearly now they do not.
Just for the record I didn't vote in the referendum.
