Tony Blair, the former U.K. Prime Minister has announced he will be making a speech today to urge Britons who don't agree with the Brexit plan to rise up and defend what they believe in. He says that a new vote might be warranted.

Some excerpts have been released from the upcoming speech and here's what he will most likely say (among other things):

People voted without knowledge of the true terms of Brexit. As these terms become clear, it is their right to change their mind. Our mission is to persuade them to do so.

Our challenge is to expose relentlessly the actual cost, to show how this decision was based on imperfect knowledge, which will now become informed knowledge. I don't know if we can succeed. But I do know we will suffer a rancorous verdict from future generations if we do not try.

What would happen if there actually would be a new (unlikely) referendum? Considering what a number of people said after the first vote, chances are that the referendum this time would go against Brexit and pro EU, considering that many people simply voted for Brexit as a protest vote, believing that it would actually never happen.
