Commenting on Mervyn King’s attack on the Government’s handling of the Brexit negotiations, Chris Leslie MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“Whether people voted leave or remain, a growing majority are arriving at the same conclusion - that the process has been botched and that we are heading for a bad deal.
“But the reality is that the cake-and-eat it Brexit that was promised was never deliverable. No amount of government preparation could have made Brexit a success on the terms promised. That’s why, once we know the outcome of the negotiations, we need a People’s Vote so the public can decide whether it’s good enough.”
