Responding to Chris Grayling’s remarks about far right extremism, Luciana Berger, the Labour MP and a leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“Chris Grayling is now cowering behind the small threat of far right extremism as an excuse for refusing to give the British people a democratic final say on Brexit.
“These remarks are not only grossly irresponsible but also show just how desperate supporters of this proposed Withdrawal Agreement have become. We absolutely need to heal divisions in our society but we will not do so with a Brexit that makes us poorer and offers less control. And the answer to a small band of far right thugs roaming the streets must never be to capitulate and restrict our democratic engagement - it must be more democracy.”
