Former prime minister Tony Blair has said a second Brexit referendum should be a choice between remain and a hard Brexit.
Speaking on ITV's Good Morning Britain, the former Labour leader said a second people's vote was the only way to settle the deadlock in Parliament.
Blair, who is in favour of a People's Vote, said the choice should be between a hard Brexit or staying in the European Union.
He said Prime Minister Theresa May's deal did not please Brexiteers or Remainers.
He added: 'The only way to resolve this is to have the option remain or leave, but leave on terms that make it clear this is hard Brexit.
