Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Thursday warned voters that time was running out to reverse Brexit Cheap Derrick Henry Jersey , a folly he said would torpedo Britain's remaining clout and be regretted for generations to come.

More than a year and a half since the 2016 Brexit vote, the United Kingdom remains deeply divided over the planned EU exit that Prime Minister Theresa May says will take place on March 29, 2019.
Both opponents and supporters of Brexit agree that the divorce is Britain's most significant geopolitical move since World War Two Cheap Jack Conklin Jersey , though they cast vastly different futures for the $2.5 trillion UK economy and its relation with the world's biggest trading bloc.
Blair, Labour prime minister from 1997 to 2007, said Britain would be poorer, weaker and warned that May had solved none of the problems over Northern Ireland's post-Brexit status.
"We are making an error the contemporary world cannot understand and the generations of the future will not forgive," Blair said in an article published on his website on Thursday.
"2018 will be the last chance to secure a say on whether the new relationship proposed with Europe is better than the existing one," Blair Cheap Jonnu Smith Jersey , 64, said.
Leaving the European Union was once far-fetched: just over 15 years ago, British leaders such as Blair were arguing about when to join the euro, and talk of an EU exit was the reserve of skeptics on the fringes of both major parties.
But the turmoil of the euro zone crisis, fears in Britain about immigration and a series of miscalculations by former Prime Minister David Cameron prompted the United Kingdom to vote 52 to 48 percent for Brexit in a June 2016 referendum.
Blair has repeatedly called for reversing Brexit, echoing other opponents of Brexit such as French President Emmanuel Macron and billionaire investor George Soros Cheap Taywan Taylor Jersey , who have suggested that Britain could still change its mind.
So far, opinion polls show little sign of a change of heart and it is unclear how Brexit could be stopped if both major political parties officially support the divorce.
Half of Britons support a second vote on whether to leave the European Union and a majority think the government may be paying too much money to the EU to open the way to trade talks, according to an opinion poll published last month.
Supporters of Brexit dismissed Blair and said he was undermining both the British negotiation and the will of the people.
"Blair and his elitist gang are damaging our negotiating strength, thus damaging our national interest by their continuing efforts to undermine democracy," said Richard Tice, who helped found one of the two Leave campaign groups.
"History will not forgive them Cheap Adoree' Jackson Jersey ," Tice told Reuters.
Blair is unpopular in Britain for his decision to back then-U.S. President George W. Bush’s 2003 invasion of Iraq and the justification he used for going into a war that cost the deaths of 150,000 Iraqi civilians and 179 British soldiers.
But he has become increasingly outspoken about Brexit.
He implored his Labour Party, which is now led by socialist Jeremy Corbyn, to join the fight to stop Brexit.
"Make Brexit the Tory Brexit. Make them own it 100 percent," Blair said. "If Labour continues to go along with Brexit and insists on leaving the Single Market, the handmaiden of Brexit will have been the timidity of Labour."
Chinese President Xi Jinping delivers a New Year speech to extend New Year greetings to all Chinese Cheap Corey Davis Jersey , and best wishes to friends all over the world, in Beijing, capital of China, Dec. 31, 2017. (Xinhua)
BEIJING, Jan. 1 (Xinhua) -- The well-being of the Chinese people took central place in the New Year speech delivered by President Xi Jinping on Sunday Cheap Delanie Walker Jersey , highlighting his "people first" governance principle.
Ancient Chinese scholars used to say that people are fundamental to a country. In his speech, Xi said, "The well-being of our people is the Party and the government's greatest political achievement. Our cadres should put the people's state of living at the heart, and help them live a better life."
Actions speak louder than words. Over the past five years, Xi has led the country of about 1.4 billion people to numerous achievements related to their lives.
Stating the achievements China made in 2017, Xi said gross domestic product had risen to 80 trillion yuan (12.3 trillion U.S. dollars) Cheap DeMarco Murray Jersey , over 13 million new jobs were created, 1.35 billion people were covered by basic medical insurance, and more than 10 million rural people were lifted out of poverty.
China has set an ambitious target of lifting all people out of poverty by 2020 -- only three years to go. The country has already set a remarkable example for the world as it has lifted over 700 million people out of poverty since it adopted the reform and opening up policy four decades ago.
When the 2020 target is achieved, which looks quite set, it will be the first time in China's thousands of years of history that extreme poverty is eliminated.
"This is a great cause, important to both the Chinese nation and humanity. Let's do it together and make it happen Cheap Marcus Mariota Jersey ," Xi said.
However, problems do exist in Chinese society that undermine people's livelihood. Just as Xi said, among the people's most pressing concerns are education, employment, income, social security Wholesale Tennessee Titans Jerseys , health care, elderly care, housing and environmental protection.
This year, China will mark the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up. It will be a great chance for the country to reflect upon the past and plan for the future path of development.
Xi vowed in the speech that China will resolutely carry out reform in 2018:
