Top Conservative donor John Griffin, the founder of taxi company Addison Lee, said today (Monday) during an interview with BBC World at One that the public should be given the final say on Brexit through a new public vote. He said:
“It’s looking more and more like we’re going to have to have another referendum. Now I really felt that I would never ever say that because democracy is alive and well and should be kept so. But unfortunately we now have to consider, perhaps we made a mistake and a big one, and it’s going to affect our country for some time. So I think we have to reconsider our position.
“I think at the time there was a new dawn and the grass is always greener and all this stuff. Everybody thought ‘let’s go for it’. But the truth is now as we look back, perhaps that wasn’t such a wise decision, us on behalf of the country. We now need to look at that and think, you know what, maybe we should tread backwards and have a look at what we really have been subjected to.
