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

MPs, celebrities and business leaders have launched a campaign calling for a public vote on the final Brexit deal between the United Kingdom and the EU.

'Since the 2016 referendum, there has been a concerted effort by many - including government - to shut down debate about Brexit and to tell us that we should simply trust ministers to get on with it because Brexit is an irreversible process.

Sir Patrick told the crowd that the day Britain joined the European Union on January 1, 1973, was one of the best days of his life.

The Conservative remainer then said that Brexit "hasn't exactly delivered quiet government" and instead delivered a "turbulent government". "It should not be a done deal".

"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".

James MacCleary, the campaign director of European Movement UK, said: "The pro-European movement is gaining in strength and momentum, and that progress will be reflected this weekend with a huge demonstration of grassroots power in favour of a people's vote on the Brexit deal".

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".

Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran, a leading supporter of the People's Vote campaign, said:"It may seem like the odds are stacked against us as a movement, but fighting for what you believe in is never easy".

Nelson mocked the name of the campaign: "Politicians like Chukka Umunna and Soubry for calling for a people's vote. Together, are on the verge of something extraordinary".

It added that the group of mostly former British Empire nations, which are home to 2.4billion people, traded nearly £400billion of goods and services with each other in 2016.

Stewart added: "As time has gone by, the information that we are receiving about the terms and conditions of that separation are quite unlike the terms and conditions that were spoken of so loosely during the 2016 campaign".

The People's Vote campaign wants a referendum so the public can ratify or reject the final Brexit agreement.

Asked what he would say to people who voted for Brexit, he told the programme "what we are doing is in their benefit".
