Responding to President Macron’s article in the European press, David Miliband, former foreign secretary and a leading supporter of People’s Vote, said:
“Emmanuel Macron has demolished the false choice between withdrawal from Europe and a standstill Europe.
“He says Europe should learn the lessons of Brexit, but also the lessons from the isolationism of President Trump’s America and the dangers posed by President Putin’s Russia.
“His article is a challenge to Europe’s leaders but also to those in Britain. As Parliament considers its final choices on Brexit, the truth is increasingly clear that the Brexit people were promised in 2016 is not on offer. It cannot be undemocratic to give the people the final say on whether to go ahead with Brexit.”
