Let public vote on final Brexit deal, says new United Kingdom campaign

16 April 2018

The survey was conducted earlier this week, ahead of a campaign launched by Open Britain calling for a public vote on whatever Brexit deal British Prime Minister Theresa May presents to parliament. Around 1,200 people attended the event, according to organisers.

During a speech to the crowd, Green Party leader Ms. Lucas said: "We will be making the case in Parliament, but this is too big and too important to be determined exclusively by politicians".

"It's a vote to ratify the final deal, which is different to the initial thoughts of people when they bought this product", Lib Dem MP Layla Moran, one of the speakers, told AFP afterwards.

Andrew put it to Dominic that "there would be more uncertainty, would there not, if we now offer a people's vote" but his response suggested the only uncertainty would be "for the duration of the vote".

Refusing to call it a "second referendum" in the belief that it may be possible to trick Brexiteers into thinking the People's Vote is pushing for anything but, Umunna told the newspaper that "Going round shouting 'Stop Brexit!' won't achieve anything".

The push is run by Open Britain, which grew out of the official Remain campaign of the 2016 referendum.

"Brexit is not inevitable".

Respondents were asked to what extent they supported or opposed the public voting on the final Brexit deal the British government makes with the EU.

Campaigners including actor Sir Patrick Stewart and politicians from across the political spectrum are demanding a second vote.

"Brexit will affect everybody in the country, which is why it should not be left to 650 politicians to decide our future but 65 million people".

Actor Stewart said in a media interview Sunday that if people voted to reject the exit deal, Britain would simply stay in the EU.

The transition deal will not be finalised unless Britain and the other 27 European Union countries agree on divorce terms by October - Brussels' deadline to wrap up talks.

In the seismic June 2016 referendum on Britain's European Union membership, 52 percent of the UK's British, Irish and Commonwealth residents, plus Britons overseas who had lived in Britain in the last 15 years, voted to leave. "We're now trying to deliver on that mandate from the people".

"We'll be able to have, not only a enormous free trade deal with our friends and partners across the channel, but we'll be able to boldly go to areas we perhaps neglected over the past five years".
