Responding to the news in the Sunday Times and the Mail on Sunday that David Lidington and others have been reaching out to Labour MPs about a people’s vote, Ian Murray, Labour MP and Best for Britain champion, said:
“These revelations show that a People’s Vote is now closer than ever.
“Even Theresa May’s closest supporters have realised that the only way out of this Brexit shambles is to put our country’s future back in the hands of the public.
“There is cross-party support for a People’s Vote, and we are now moving towards a parliamentary majority. It’s time for Theresa May to trust the British public and for all MPs to work together to achieve a People’s Vote.”
