Remain publicly admits there will be no second referendum to try to overturn Brexit and keep Britain in the Fourth Reich of the European Union.
The second referendum is off (for now). Remainer MPs today dropped their bid to force a parliamentary vote demanding a second referendum – admitting they do not have enough support to back it. The gang of Labour and Tory MPs who were backing a so-called People’s Vote blasted Jeremy Corbyn for killing off their chances of winning.
Tory MP Dr Sarah Wollaston had planned to table the ‘doctor’s amendment’ to next Tuesday’s crunch Brexit motion to demand a second referendum. But stood outside Parliament this morning flanked by pro-EU Labour MPs Luciana Berger and Chuka Umunna, she announced a U-turn.
The shock moves comes after a massive row among Remainer MPs over when to finally show their hand a call a Commons vote on another referendum. Although Tony Blair – an arch Remainer – today said there is a more than 50 per cent chance that another referendum could be held.
Speaking at a hastily arranged press conference on the steps of the Palace of Westminster, Dr Wollaston said: ‘It is with great regret we will not be laying that amendment, because at this stage and until we have the leader of the Opposition’s backing, it would not pass.’
This should be seen as evidence that the gentleman who emailed about Her Majesty the Queen having secured Brexit by twice sending a warning of a possible royal Refusal of Assent to Parliament knew what he was talking about.
