Tony Blair made an impassioned speech in the City of London this morning calling on the British people to "rise up" and fight against Brexit.
The former PM was speaking at the launch of his new campaign for the UK to remain in the European Union.
"People voted without knowledge of the true terms of Brexit," said Blair.
"As these terms become clear, it is their right to change their mind."
Unsurprisingly, Blair's words elicited strong reactions on line. Here's a selection of the best responses on Twitter:

Tony Blair's plan for two year campaign to overturn the #Euref is no way forward. Respect the result - fight for best deal.— Caroline Flint (@CarolineFlintMP) February 17, 2017

And some people feel like there's been a time warp
Roy Jones and Tony Blair all over my timeline. It's the 90s again, I had my youthful vigour then. I'm not listening to fucking Oasis though.— PapaJohnPizzaLaunch (@paulhindley82) February 17, 2017
You know how everyone hated 90s music for ages and then it came back and it was sort of cool. I think it will take longer with Tony Blair. https://t.co/zagttboHYQ— Jennifer Williams (@JenWilliamsMEN) February 17, 2017
