A few months ago an idea looked ruled out. But the idea is now extensive debate.

In May last week, the most serious threat to her survived, despite her senior leadership, to win party confidence, this does little to improve her chances of getting her Brexit deal through the parliament.

As Maize’s political options are narrow, the idea of ​​throwing the issue back to public speed comes.

Below are the key politicians who say to hold another vote:

Prime Minister Theresa May:

“Let’s not break the faith of the British people by trying to form another referendum.”

“Another voice that would make irreparable damage to integrity our policy, for it would say to millions who trusted democracy that our democracy did not deliver. “

Opposition Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn:

This is an option for the future , but not an option for today. For if you have a referendum tomorrow, what’s the matter of, what’s the matter? “

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair:

” What seemed a few months ago unlikely now that I would say over 50 percent probability. We will go back to the people. Ultimately, this may even be meaningful to PM, which can perfectly say: “I did my best My business was rejected by the Parliament.

“In a new referendum, both sides can make their case in connection with the experience of the Brexit negotiations and what we have learned through it.”

Former Prime Minister John Major:

“It has disadvantages. I mean, frankly, a second voice has democratic disadvantages.” It’s having difficulties. But is it morally motivated? I think it is

“If you looking back at the Leave campaign, were a lot of the promises they made fantasy promises. We now know that they will not be met. “

Nigel Farage, the former British independent party leader and a leading advocate of Brexit, said:

” My message, the people’s tonight is as much as I do not. I do not want a second referendum, it would be wrong for us. …… not ready, not being prepared for a worst case scenario

“May I invite you, can I ask you to get ready for each situation? I think they will be in the next few months betray us completely and let’s be ready not only to get back, but if it comes we will win it next time with a much bigger margin. “

Liam Fox, UK’s Minister of Commerce and a Proposer to Leave the EU: [19659004] Suppose we had another referendum. Suppose the left side won it with 52 to 48 but it was at a lower breakdown, as possible

“Let me tell you that if there is another referendum I do not think comes to be come r people like me to be immediately demanding is the best of three. Where does it end? “

Boris Johnson, the former Foreign Minister:

” They (the public) would immediately know that they would be asked to vote again simply because they failed to give the “right” response the last time. They should for good reason suspect that it was all a giant plot designed by politicians to turn them around. A second referendum would cause immediate, deep and unchanging feelings of betrayal.
