JD: Tony Blair saying now that there’s a 50/50 chance for another Brexit referendum. That could change the whole scene there in Great Britain. What are your thoughts about this? Is it very possible it could happen?
JR: There’s certainly a lot of complexities here and many factors in the mix and so we have to add Tony Blair to that. You know it’s not the first time that he’s been used more or less by the EU to do their biding. He’s been very very strong against Brexit. He’s been doved “the remainder in chief”. So we should be expecting that these type of things would happen. So in this week Tony Blair has advanced and saying that there’s a 50/50 chance of another Brexit referendum.
Without a deal there could be another referendum which would seem very difficult because of the time frame. But there was a phrase included in this information that really struck me saying that the UK could in a sense rejoin the EU with new membership terms and that there would be a reformed EU; that EU leaders would be willing to reform in order for England to be back. What does that mean? How could there possibly be a vote to know not only what you’re going out of but what you would be coming back into. We don’t know what the EU reform would even mean and Tony Blair is in the center of it.
JD: John Rood with the details about Tony Blair’s statement that there could be another referendum on Brexit which would mean that possibly the United Kingdom would not pull out of the European Union.
