McGovern – Stride remarks “let the cat out of the bag” on People’s Vote

Treasury Minister Mel Stride has told Sky News that a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal is possible.

Urging Brextremist MPs to support the Government he said:

I suspect those to the right of the party, the pro Brexit wing, will be very concerned that - if that deal doesn’t prevail - they’ll end up in a situation where we could have a second referendum and we could end up not leaving the EU altogether.

Commenting, Alison McGovern MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote, said:

“This has changed everything. A minister has had the courage to tell the truth about the mess the Government are in over Brexit and let the cat out of the bag. The Brexit elite are desperate to deny the people a voice on Brexit but there is no stopping an idea whose time has come.”
