Speaking to BBC Radio 4, the former Prime Minister said: “When the facts change, I think people are entitled to change their mind.”
Singling out Vote Leave’s Brexit bus, Blair said: “A lot of people will have voted for Brexit on the basis that if you get out of Europe, all this money is going to come back and we can spend it on the health service. And that was a very specific promise made by the Brexiteers.”
When asked if his position on Brexit was to reverse it, Blair replied: “Yes, exactly so.”
“The will of the people is not something immutable. People can change their mind if the circumstances change,” he added.
Blair once again demonstrating how badly out of touch he is – a recent poll showed just 12% want to abandon Brexit. From PM to a fringe figure.
