London (July 15, 2017): Former UK prime minister Tony Blair says there’s a chance Britain won’t leave the European Union and stopping Brexit is “necessary” to avoid severe economic damage.

In an article published Saturday by Blair’s Institute for Global Change, he wrote that EU leaders might be willing to “reform and meet us half way” to keep the UK in the bloc.He insisted that European Union leaders would accept tightening up immigration rules to accommodate Britain, so the option of the UK staying in the bloc should remain open.

More than a decade of mass immigration from the EU under freedom of movement rules was a major factor in the referendum that saw Britons vote to leave the EU.David Cameron as prime minister sought reform but got little out of his fellow EU leaders. However, Blair said the election of French President Emmanuel Macron had changed EU dynamics.
