Tony Blair says we should keep our Brexit options open

Tony  Blair has emerged this week asking the people of Britain to keep our options open.  His view being that even though we have voted for Brexit, we have not voted for what type of Brexit we want.msc_2014_blair_mueller_msc2014

Is Tony Blair calling for either a 2nd referendum once the outcome of negotiations are known.  It is quite obvious that he is choosing his words carefully, as not to offend the 52% who voted for Brexit.  However, he is still offering hope to the 48% of the UK population who voted to remain.  Is this a good idea?  Shouldn’t we just be getting on with negotiating the best deal rather than perpetuating the idea that if a bad deal is negotiated we will have no choice but to remain in the EU?
