Tony Blair (and who could forget him as he pushes himself into the media almost every week), entered the "Brexit" controversy this week, suggesting that those people (the majority) who voted to leave the EU did not really understand what they were voting for, and called for "millions to rise up against Brexit" adding " we have to build a movement which stretches across party lines, and devise new ways of communication.” He just fell short of demanding another referendum (but only just) as he patronised those who for many different reasons, had voted to leave the EU. His intervention on this issue, proved yet again that Blair is interested only in self and the advancement of his long held ambition to be "President of the United States of Europe". He must have been very shocked and saddened that even those MP's considered to be "Blairites" have criticised his plea for the Brexit decision to be reversed saying that his press conference and his words were "unhelpful" and that his dismissal of the referendum result is a rejection of the democratic process. Perhaps Blair will finally get the message and go back to his retirement growing roses and making millions of £ and $ or whatever currency he can get his hands on, writing his perverted version of history.
