Establishment Launches Anti-Brexit Campaign 'People's Vote' to Overturn… the People's Vote

Britain to study options if Syria's Assad uses chemical weapons again -foreign minister

Business leaders and celebrities including Mirfield-born actor Sir Patrick Stewart have launched a campaign for a public vote on the final Brexit deal.

Organisers said some 1,200 people were at the event, including MPs from all leading parties.

Green MP Caroline Lucas will say: "We will be making the case in Parliament, but this is too big and too important to be determined exclusively by politicians".

"It's a vote to ratify the final deal, which is different to the initial thoughts of people when they bought this product", Lib Dem MP Layla Moran, one of the speakers, told AFP afterwards.

A pro-Brexit group in Britain's referendum on whether to leave the European Union may have broken electoral rules by overspending during the campaign, according to a legal opinion published by a parliamentary committee.

"We are short on time, but we have people power on our side".

The first step would be to convince enough lawmakers - crucially Labour and Conservative backbenchers, emboldened by demand from the public - to get a new referendum in legislation, likely through an amendment to a Brexit bill.

"They voted with a substantial majority to leave the EU".

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

"Brexit is not inevitable".

"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.

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 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".

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

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.

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

Britain is due to leave the European Union in March 2019.

"I think we'll get a great result and we'll be able to have, not only a huge free trade deal with our friends and partners across the channel, but we'll be able to boldly go to areas we perhaps neglected over the past five years".
