Remain groups team up to push for second Brexit vote

Actor Patrick Stewart drew on his two best-known characters as he helped launch a campaign to give voters the final say on any deal Britain negotiates to leave the European Union.

MPs including Labour's Chuka Umunna, Conservative Anna Soubry, Liberal Democrat Layla Moran and Green Party leader Caroline Lucas have all given their backing to the new group. Around 1,200 people attended the event, according to organisers.

Andrew put it to Dominic that "there would be more uncertainty, would there not, if we now offer a people's vote" but his response suggested the only uncertainty would be "for the duration of the vote".

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

Open Britain chief James McGrory said Brexit was "not inevitable". It should not be a done deal.

Campaigners including actor Sir Patrick Stewart and politicians from across the political spectrum are demanding a second vote. Speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr show on Sunday, he said that the "terms and conditions" of Brexit were "quite unlike" how they were put forward during the referendum campaign.

He also said he was motivated by "history and emotion" to want to stay in the EU.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson ridiculed the campaign, pointing out that the people's vote has already taken place.

Remain-backing groups have been emboldened by a recent shift in public support towards staying in the European Union, and a number of high-profile figures have come out in favour of a second referendum, including former prime ministers John Major and Tony Blair.

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

"I think we'll get a great result and we'll be able to have, not only a enormous 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".
