should there be a referendumThe Liberal Democrat leader has said his party will vote against triggering Article 50 unless Theresa May promises a second referendum.

Tim Farron has said the public should have the chance to decide if they want to leave the European Union after the government's negotiations are complete.
MPs from other Parties have also said they are prepared to vote against initiating Brexit.

the people are soverignTim Farron: 'The Liberal Democrats will vote against Article 50 unless the British people are given a vote on the final Brexit deal'

This morning, I set out a red line on Article 50 and made clear that unless the government agrees to a referendum on the final Brexit deal, the party will vote against Article 50 in the House of Commons.

Many Brexiteers knew they were against the EU - but appear to have little idea of what they are actually for

brexitmarrshowUkip’s Nigel Farage predicted that there would be unrest on the streets against an establishment stitch-up. Michael Gove shrieked in the House of Commons yesterday that the will of the people is being thwarted. David Davis spluttered that Lloyd-George would be spinning in his grave if peers were allowed to stand in the way of the people.
