Former Foreign Secretary David Miliband has called for a second referendum on the terms of the Brexit deal, saying:
‘It is essential that parliament or the public are given the chance to have a straight vote between EU membership and the negotiated alternative. That is a democratic demand, not just a prudent one’.
‘Brexit is an unparalleled act of economic self-harm’.
‘People say we must respect the referendum. We should. But democracy did not end on the 23rd of June 2016. The referendum will be no excuse if the country is driven off a cliff’.
‘The EU is not just a group of neighbouring countries. It is a coalition of democratic states which pledge to advance human rights, the rule of law and democratic rules. That is not a threat to Britain; it is the team we should be in’.
