UK: Anti-Brexit rally urges reversal of European Union exit

Mr Blair also said he thought Brexit would only work if Britain became a Singapore-style, low-tax, low-regulation economy, but that he feared voters would reject such a big change.

Shadow health secretary Jon Ashworth denied Labour was shifting its Brexit position, and also rejected deputy leader Tom Watson's belief that the United Kingdom could permanently remain part of the single market and customs union after Brexit.

He told The Telegraph: "We've got to absolutely stop the Brexit which this rather incompetent, dysfunctional and disunited government are trying to force upon us".

Blair has been blamed in many quarters for the rise in public concern about immigration which culminated in the Brexit vote, after failing to impose transitional controls on migrants from new European Union member states in 2004.

"They realise Britain doesn't have a very strong hand in these negotiations and they are anxious about the future of the country, as I am, as these people are". And the UK wants to use Ireland as a kind of test case for the future EU-UK customs relations.

It comes as MPs are set to vote on the repeal bill, formally known as the EU (Withdrawal) Bill, on Monday for the first time, amid concerns over the progress of Brexit negotiations.

Such an amendment for another national vote, Adonis said, would stand a good chance of being passed by the House of Commons because Labour would by then have reason to support it, and sufficient pro-EU Tories would also rally behind it, he argues.

In its position paper on post-Brexit customs, released in August, the United Kingdom said it hoped to ensure that cross-border trade remains "as frictionless as possible" beyond March 2019.

A Conservative peer has implored parliamentarians who voted Remain to stay true to their convictions as thousands of anti-Brexit demonstrators marched on Westminster. "It's a pity he didn't think of that when all these countries were admitted to the European Union on his watch", the said said.

"My government in 2004 did not invoke the transitional arrangements when eastern Europe joined the EU".

Meanwhile, David Davis warned Labour MPs they risk creating chaos and uncertainty if they scupper the Government's plans for transferring laws from Brussels to Britain.

Over 50,000 people have turned out to march against Britain's exit from the European Union.

Critics, however, pointed to his government's failure to impose restrictions on new European Union members, mainly from Eastern Europe, to work in the United Kingdom in 2004 for increasing tensions and allowing an influx of immigrants that changed the face of Britain.

"They are not voting on whether or not we leave the EU".
