Cross-party statement on People’s Vote and revoking Article 50

by Jackie Porter on 3 April, 2019


Following cross-party talks, opposition parties have called for a People’s Vote to be a priority and to keep the option to revoke Article 50 on the table to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

In a joint statement, our Lib Dem Leader, Vince Cable, along with Liz Saville Roberts, Ian Blackford, Chuka Umunna and Caroline Lucas said:

“The UK is in the midst of a Brexit crisis led by a government dictated by incompetence.

“Given everything we now know – and the detrimental impact Brexit will have on the UK’s economy, job opportunities and people’s livelihoods, the priority must be bringing the issue back to the people in a People’s Vote – with the option to remain on the ballot paper.

“We are in agreement that there is no such thing as a good Brexit and that people across the UK face being worse off.

“We have shown over the past three years we are willing to find a compromise position to end the impasse.

“Time is fast running out and any compromise that is reached must be brought back to the people through a fresh referendum, and keep the option to revoke Article 50 on the table to avoid a no-deal Brexit.”
