Pretoria News - - World - | Reuters | African News Agency (ANA) |

LON­DON: The UK should call a ref­er­en­dum to al­low vot­ers to choose be­tween a no-deal Brexit and stay­ing in a re­formed EU as Bri­tish pol­i­tics is dead­locked over the is­sue, former prime min­is­ter Tony Blair said yes­ter­day.

If Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May can strike a deal with the EU, she has to get it ap­proved by the Bri­tish par­lia­ment, which is deeply di­vided over Brexit. Blair, a former Labour prime min­is­ter, said he did not ex­pect May to be able to get a deal through par­lia­ment so the coun­try should be of­fered a new vote.
