British lawmakers, celebrities call for 'people's vote' on Brexit

Spring weather Apr 14 2018

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.

Opening the London launch of People's Vote - a new grassroots movement campaigning for a referendum on the final deal - Sir Patrick said Brexit means that he will show his new blue passport "with less pride".

The day of action is being organised by the European Movement, Open Britain and Britain for Europe, with more than 100 events planned across the United Kingdom, from Aberdeen to Falmouth.

"Given that public opinion hasn't changed, I don't know why a second referendum, if the first question gave the wrong answer, would work any differently".

"No-one had any idea what the consequences of Brexit were going to be".

Speaking at the rally, Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas said: "We'll do everything we can in Parliament for a people's vote".

"This issue is far too important to to leave to the politicians".

The campaign is run by Open Britain, which is one of several anti-Brexit organisations which sprung up during the 2016 referendum.

He added that "history and emotion" led him to want to stay in the EU.

The UK voted to exit the European Union by 51.9% to 48.1% in June 2016.

Barnier noted that British Prime Minister Theresa May assured the EU London would not engage in a race to the bottom in environmental protection and that her words were reflected in Britain's proposed 25-year plan on the environment.

"I'm a war baby and growing up a lot of the world was not good".

A promise to that end, he said, should be written down in the treaty that will regulate relations between London and the 27 countries that will remain in the European Union after Britain leaves at the end of March 2019.

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

Mr Johnson addressed the remarks made by Sir Patrick, who played the role of Captin Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Brexit remains a fractious topic in Britain, with less than a year to go until the country quits the EU.
