Celebrities and MPs call for “people's vote” on Brexit

Monday 16th April 2018 09:54 EDT

On Sunday, celebrities, MPs and business leaders launched a campaign to call for a vote in any final Brexit deal, speeding up a campaign to attempt to stop what they describe as Britain's damaging departure from the European Union. 

The launch in North London saw MPs from the Conservative Party and Labour, along with hundreds of others to press for what they described as a “people's vote” on Brexit. 

Both parties have ruled out a second referendum. However, actor Patrick Steward, who is a strong supporter of the People's Vote campaign, said that they are not demanding a second referendum, but rather wanted “another chance to consider what the terms of this divorce are going to be”. 

Steward told the BBC, “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.”
