Remain groups team up to push for second Brexit vote

Remain groups team up to push for second Brexit vote

Speaking to the Mail on Sunday, Umunna and Soubry said they wanted to stop a "hard Brexit" - otherwise known as a full, proper Brexit which would free the United Kingdom from the restrictive Customs Union and Single Market that prevent the country from making her own trade deals and controlling immigration.

The British parliament's only Green MP, Caroline Lucas, said: "This is too big and too important to be determined exclusively by politicians".

He said the People's Vote campaign would argue that the public, not MPs, should get the final say on Brexit.

Actor Sir Patrick Stewart, who backs the campaign, said if people voted to reject the exit deal, the United Kingdom would "simply stay" in the EU.

Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas, also at the event, reassured attendees, saying: "We'll do everything we can in Parliament for a people's vote".

Stewart told the BBC he is supporting the People's Vote because the terms and conditions coming out of the negotiations are very different from those discussed during the 2016 referendum campaign.

"Brexit is not inevitable".

Actor Patrick Stewart, who backs the campaign, said that the United Kingdom would "simply stay" in the European Union if the vote rejected the exit deal.

Nelson mocked the name of the campaign: "Politicians like Chukka Umunna and Soubry for calling for a people's vote".

Jordi Sanchez was among those elected in the December elections in Catalonia which saw a renewed, if slight, majority for the separatists.

"Whether you think the government will negotiate a good deal or bad deal, Brexit is definitely a big deal", Open Britain's Executive Director James McGrory said in a statement.

Actor Patrick Stewart, a supporter of the People's Vote campaign, said campaigners were not asking for a second referendum, but rather wanted "another chance to consider what the terms of this divorce are going to be".

"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".

Also speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson responded to the campaign.

Sir Patrick said Jeremy Corbyn is a "puzzle" to him after he was pressed on how the Labour leader had sacked shadow cabinet members who have differing views on Brexit.

The People's Vote campaign is aiming to unite anti-Brexit groups and a rally is taking place in Camden, London on Sunday.

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.

He added: "They voted with a substantial majority to leave the EU. We're now trying to deliver on that mandate from the people", Mr Johnson told Mr Marr.
