Allies of Tony Blair will attempt to frustrate Brexit in the House of Lords on Monday by urging peers to rally against the Government.
The former Labour prime minister,last week urged people to “rise up” against Brexit and support a new movement to keep Britain in the European Union.
Lord Mandelson, one of Mr Blair’s closest allies, urged peers to defy the Government and not “throw in the towel early”.
The Labour peer said he believes that the Lords can force ministers into giving Parliament a “meaningful” vote and guaranteeing the rights of EU citizens living in the UK.
Lord Hain, who served as a cabinet minister under Mr Blair, will push for a vote on keeping Britain in the single market and call for the open border between Northern Ireland and the Republic to stay in place.
Unelected Lord Mandelson, one of the arch plotters in the plan to throw open the doors of the UK to millions of immigrants, has obviously now decided to tell the people of the UK that we should be subjects of the EU.
Mandelson should be told very firmly that if he and the other privileged lords decide to block Brexit against the wishes of both the House of Commons and the 17.4 million Leave voters, he will lose his status as a lord in the ensuing civil unrest.
