Thousands demand vote on final Brexit deal

Thousands demand vote on final Brexit deal

EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier says a deal with the United Kingdom on the issue of the Irish border is unlikely in the coming weeks.

Several pro-EU organisations have joined forces to mount an attack on the government's Brexit plans with more than 350 events across the country, ahead of the launch of a £1m campaign demanding the opportunity to stay in the European Union if the people want to.

Opponents of leaving the European Union have identified winning enough support in the lower house of parliament, the House of Commons, to block any possible deal the government brings back from Brussels as their best chance of overturning Brexit.

The British parliament's only Green MP, Caroline Lucas, said: "This is too big and too important to be determined exclusively by politicians".

Saying that voting in favour of a "good deal" would only prove to "validate" the June 23rd, 2016, referendum, neither Soubry nor Umunna could be pinned down on whether a "no" vote would result in going back to Brussels for further negotiations or staying in the bloc altogether.

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

The People's Vote campaign was launched today in North London in an attempt to unite a range of separate anti-Brexit activists.

Sir Patrick earlier told the BBC's Andrew Marr show that the "terms and conditions" of Brexit were "quite unlike" how they were presented during the run up to the 2016 referendum. Both sides are hoping to reach a deal by October, which would allow enough time for ratification.

He also said he was motivated by "history and emotion" to want to stay in the EU. "So the day we joined was one of the most exciting days of my adulthood", he added.

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

Stewart said his alter egos, Star Trek's Jean-Luc Picard and the X-Men's Charles Xavier, were "excellent, admirable" individuals concerned about the well-being of all and "they would have voted Remain".

"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".
