Responding to Boris Johnson’s speech to Conservative conference, David Lammy MP, leading supporter of People’s Vote, said:
“The fact is that Boris Johnson is not offering to get Brexit done, whatever he says. Instead he is offering years and years of argument, chaos and confusion as Johnson’s Brexit – deal or No Deal - offers no closure or clarity as negotiation follows renegotiation as night follows day.
“The general election he seeks would be divisive but not decisive, serving to exacerbate the divisions in the country but not resolving them.
“Only a confirmatory final say referendum, which can be binding on the participants, offers a democratic and fair solution to the Brexit crisis. It is time for a People’s Vote.”
