Nigel Farage says it’s time to hush the “moaning” of politicians who have not accepted the previous vote and suggested that the UK should hold one more referendum on Brexit. Ex-Ukip leader disputed that the political frontline that has been opposing Brexit would simply “never, ever, ever” stop and so a second vote is the only way to draw a line under the issue. Mr. Farage is regarded as one of the architects of Brexit and has been the most uninhibited critic of political figures such as Andrew Adonis and Ex-Prime Minister Tony Blair who both implied it could and should be undone.
Mr. Farage who spoke on Channel5’s – The Wright Stuff stated, “what is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never, ever, ever give up. They will go on whining and whining and moaning all the way through this process. So maybe – just maybe – I’m reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum on EU membership.”
Up until now, all Brexiteers unanimously concluded, that it’s best to reject the possibility of another vote, and can you blame them? Would this not be equal to betraying “the will of the people,” as set out in 2016’s referendum. Matter of the fact is, Article 50 is already in process, and the ‘Remainers’ are pressuring for a revision of Brexit arguing that the people should be given another chance to vote on leaving the EU since the terms of the UK’s departure have become evident to all.
Mr. Farage carried on to say that, “if we had a second referendum on EU membership, we’d kill it off for a generation. The percentage that would vote to leave next time would be much bigger than it was last time around and we may just finish the whole thing off.”
Mr. Blair has made his stance very clear calling out to his party and Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, to outright oppose the Brexit. Lord Adonis followed up on this statement in an interview with The Independent, suggesting that Labour would indeed back a second referendum. Both Vince Cable’s Liberal Democrats and the Greens, are backing the idea of a ‘referendum of the facts,’ now that all cards are on the table.
Tom Brake, Brexit Spokesperson of the Liberal Party, said that “support is now growing on both sides of the argument for a vote on the final deal with the choice of an exit from Brexit. In any future referendum, Liberal Democrats will be leading the charge against Nigel Farage to keep Britain in the EU.”
The final word came from Theresa May’s official spokesman who declared that “we will not be having a second referendum.” We can only wait and see as the Brexit saga unravels, but at this point, the chances of a second referendum are increasing by the minute.
