Let public vote on final Brexit deal, says new UK campaign

New 'people's vote' campaign calls for public to have final say on Brexit

Tory MP Peter Bone, a leading Leave supporter, said: "This call for a second referendum is so off the planet that I suppose it is appropriate to have someone from Star Trek involved".

Sir Patrick, 77, was joined by MPs from across the political spectrum as he opened a People's Vote rally attended by more than 1,200 people in London.

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.

Supporters say the parliamentary vote Theresa May has offered on the Brexit deal is not enough and citizens deserve another say before the United Kingdom leaves the European Union next March.

Speaking to the BBC at the event, Labour peer Lord Adonis said: "People want a say..."

The People's Vote campaign is spearheaded by United Kingdom lawmakers of various parties, as well as celebrities and business leaders, British media report. "This issue is far too important to to leave to the politicians".

Conservative MP Anna Soubry told the crowd the United Kingdom was about to embark on a course that would "make you and your grandchildren... less prosperous than you are now".

Trump signals strikes against Syria, lays into Assad backer Russian Federation
If confirmed, the town's seizure would mark the last stage of Assad's takeover of the rebel-held enclave of eastern Ghouta. The answer, for now at least, is that Russian Federation has not activated a response, although that may soon change.


May has repeatedly said she will deliver what she calls the will of the people and on Sunday Foreign Minister Boris Johnson voiced optimism for the kind of deal Britain could win.

"We will likely be making the case in Parliament, however that is too huge and too necessary to be decided exclusively by politicians", she mentioned.

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.

Appearing alongside Mr Umunna on ITV's Peston on Sunday, she said: "A second referendum, Chukka, which is what you're really campaigning for, is never going to happen. So the day we joined was one of the most exciting days of my adulthood", he added.

Overseas Secretary Boris Johnson, who's steadfast in his perception that Britain can reside lengthy and prosper outdoors the European Union, riffed on one other certainly one of Star Trek's most well-known strains in his response to Sir Patrick.

But he 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'.
