I’m writing in support of a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal with an option to Remain.
 
So far both Labour and the Conservatives have given a very marginal vote for Brexit the authority to completely ignore the complicated and difficult process of leaving the EU.
Triggering Article 50 was a major miscalculation; the government, its ministers and the ministries had no real plan on how to unwind 40 years of economic and legal ties in just two.

I’m writing in support of a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal with an option to Remain.

Negotiations have not gone as planned, but anyone who listened to foreign politicians in 2016 would know that EU leaders were unlikely to compromise their four key freedoms.
 
Some MPs are using the ‘will of the people’ argument purely to maintain a quiet life for themselves. In a recent Freedom of Information request, it was revealed that less than 10% of MPs read the detailed economic assessment reports on Brexit’s impact. There can be little doubt that the vast majority of MPs know that Brexit will be at best seriously damaging to the economic prospects of this country. At worst, they will prove disastrous.
 
The popularity of the People's Vote campaign has demonstrated that something is seriously wrong with the government’s approach. 

One can accept that both sides campaigned badly before the referendum, but the biggest exaggerations were made by the Leave side. It was claimed that a trade deal with the EU would be easy; that German car dealers would force the Commission to cooperate; that we could have our cake and eat it. Worse, outright lies were told by the Leave side - like those about £350 million for the NHS if we left and an invasion of Turkish immigrants if we stayed in the EU. 

We firmly believe that there should be another vote on Britain’s relationship with Europe. Given that voters now know what Brexit means, any such referendum must give voters the opportunity to change course completely and stay in the EU. I'm sure you will also have noted that the ECJ advocate general's legal opinion states that we can withdraw Article 50 without the approval of the EU.

It’s time to stand up and be counted.
