United Kingdom doesn't need Brexit to curb European Union immigration, says former PM Blair

Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union officially kicked off on June 19, and are due to be completed by March 30, 2019.

After parade in the central streets of the british capital, the procession stopped in front of the Parliament, where several speakers had taken the floor to plead the case of the European Union, and in particular the irish singer Bob Geldof, who had called to your against the Brexit referendum of June 23, 2016.

"There is no diversion possible from Brexit without addressing the grievances that gave rise to it. Paradoxically, we have to respect the referendum vote to change it", Blair, who has said Brexit can and should be stopped, wrote in the Sunday Times newspaper. "Embarrassment for Great Britain".

Before addressing Lib Dem activists who were joining the march, Sir Vince said: "I think a lot of the people who are dealing with it directly and who don't necessarily have a political axe to grind are pretty horrified actually because they see the potential for disastrous negotiations, 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".

Some were wearing blue t-shirts emblazoned with the slogan "Remoaner Till I Die" while others wore blue wigs and berets.

He personally thanked Conservative and Labour Remainers who voted for him to be their MP, so he could continue to oppose Brexit.

The Green Party member said, to applause: "I want a similar meaningful vote for people in Westminster".

He admitted the open borders he presided over are no longer appropriate and put his name to a report calling for tighter domestic controls and the negotiation of modified free movement rules with the EU.

"Not a gift from the Government but a right".

"We're beginning to see, for example, large numbers of European nationals - some of the best people we have - feeling insecure, unwanted, drifting away from the country".

The immigration report was released by a new body set up previous year by Mr Blair to promote the centre ground of United Kingdom politics and tackle the rise of "populism" that he blamed for the Brexit vote. It must be right to try and maintain that.

Activist and musician Sir Bob Geldof, who had been expected to speak, did not address the crowd and could not be seen at the three-hour rally.
