Ex-Ukip leader Nigel Farage has suggested a second Brexit referendum to put an end to the “moaning”.
Confident in the nation’s decision to leave the EU, Farage said a second public vote would put a line under the issue, allowing the UK to move forward in negotiations.
“My mind is actually changing on all this. What is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never, ever, ever give up. They will go on whinging and whining and moaning all the way through this process,” he said on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff.
“So maybe, just maybe, I’m reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum on EU membership … unless you want to have a multiple choice referendum, which would confuse people. I think that if we had a second referendum on EU membership we would kill it off for a generation.
“The percentage that would vote to leave next time would be very much bigger than it was last time round. And we may just finish the whole thing off. And Blair can disappear off into total obscurity.”
This is not the only suggestion of a second referendum. Another vote has also been championed by Tony Blair, Andrew Adonis and Nick Clegg.
MPs from the Green party, Labour and the Liberal Democrats have shown support for another referendum.
“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,” said Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake.
“In any future referendum, Liberal Democrats will be leading the charge against Nigel Farage to keep Britain in the EU.”
Despite these calls, Theresa May has remained firm that a second referendum will not take place.
“We will not be having a second referendum,” said a spokesperson for the Prime Minister, in response to various calls for one.
