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.

“I honestly think if you’re going to leave, leave, but don’t do this halfway house.”
