David Hannay, a member of the House of Lords and former UK ambassador to the EU and UN explodes five arguments against holding a People’s Vote on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations. They are familiar to those who’ve helped us on our stalls. The five myths are:
- There’s no need for another People’s Vote as we already had one in June 2016.
- A People’s Vote would be deeply divisive.
- Accepting the current deal would settle the Brexit issue once and for all, while holding a People’s Vote would open the door to a neverendum.
- There is no time to hold a People’s Vote before March 2018.
- There is a real risk that rejection of the deal will lead to the UK going over the cliff in March 2019 without any deal at all.
