Blair urges pro-EU Britons to 'rise up' against Brexit

Former British prime minister Tony Blair on Friday urged Britons who support the European Union to “rise up” and persuade Brexit voters to change their mind about leaving the bloc in a high-profile speech. “This is not the time for retreat, indifference or despair but the time to rise up in defence of what we believe,” he said at an event organised by Open Britain, a campaign group lobbying for Britain to retain close ties with the EU. “We have to build a movement that will stretch across party lines,” he said, announcing that he was creating an institute that would also develop arguments against Brexit and keep ties with the EU.
