Former British prime minister Tony Blair told voters on Thursday that time was running out to reverse Brexit, a folly that 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, though they cast vastly different futures for the $2.5 trillion U.K. economy and the world's biggest trading bloc.Supporters of Brexit accused Blair of undermining both Britain's negotiations with the EU and the will of the people.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.
