London, Nov 25: Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair told the British people on Thursday that Brexit can still be stopped. Xinhua news agency quoted Blair as saying that if the British public were to be given the chance to evaluate whatever fil deal Prime Minister Theresa May negotiated with Brussels minds could still be made up. The European Union exit “can be stopped if the British people decide that, having seen what it means, the pain-gain cost-benefit alysis doesn’t stack up”, said Blair, 63. The former Labour Party leader said that he was not advocating it should be stopped, rather that it could happen if the reasons were compelling. “Why wouldn’t you keep your options open?” Blair said. “Why wouldn’t you say, ‘We took this decision, we took it before we saw what its consequences are; now we see its consequences, we’re not so sure,’” Blair told the New Statesman magazine in an interview.
