After the repeated Brexit shift, the calls for a second referendum volume up. “A flexible extension until 31 October is long enough to hold a referendum,” said British Liberal Democrat spokesman Tom Brake in London on Thursday. “It’s long overdue for Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn to give up their political games,” Brake said.
Similarly, the new “Independent Group” had previously expressed in the lower house. With a referendum “the whole debacle can be brought to an end,” tweeted about the deputy Chris Leslie, who belongs to the group. Otherwise you have to expect a very long horror story about the “Halloween Brexit”.
The “Independent Group” in the House of Commons consists of about a dozen former Labor and Tory MPs who have joined in discontent over the Brexit course. She had recently announced that she would be recognized as a party.
The British voted in favor of leaving the European Union by a narrow margin in June 2016. According to the British Electoral Commission, a second Brexit referendum would require at least four, rather six months of preparation.
The EU and Mayhad agreed on a compromise on the night of Thursday: London gets for the Brexit until October 31, but can also leave earlier regulated exit from the EU.
Theresa May had again denied a second referendum on Wednesday. “My opinion has not changed,” she said in the lower house. Also the parliament rejected this twice already.
