We asked some of our campaigners why they feel so strongly about the need for People’s Vote on the Brexit deal.
Here’s what they had to say.
I didn’t want a referendum in the first place and I don’t particularly want another one. However, the reason Parliament is unable to resolve this is that our farmers, manufacturers, and importers and business leaders are telling them not to do it. Our MPs are not willing to make us poorer. Leaving the EU is not patriotic at all, it is narrow minded. As for the ‘control of our borders’ phrase. Having been a police officer for 30 years, I can say with authority that we have always had control of our borders, even under freedom of movement for EU Nationals. If the Borders Agency has failed, it is down to a lack of funding.If Parliament hasn’t the courage to stop Brexit, then it has to go back to the people.
