Nigel Farage calls for second Brexit referendum ‘to silence remoaners’


Nigel Farage has called for a second Brexit referendum to end the constant stream of negativity about the decision to leave the EU from an increasingly vocal group of pro-European campaigners form across the political spectrum.

In a televised interview on Channel 5’s daytime talk-show The Right Stuff, the former UKIP leader said “What is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises, will never, ever, ever give – they will go on whinging, whining, and moaning all the way through this process…So maybe, just maybe, we should have a second referendum on EU membership.”

His comments follow what he said in the days before the Brexit referendum, where he told reporters that if Remain won the vote 52-48 then he would call for another referendum as the country was divided on the issue. On 23 June 2017, the British public voted 52-48 in favour of leaving the EU.

In response to Farage’s statement, a spokesperson for Theresa May confirmed the government’s position that Britain would not hold a second referendum over Brexit, despite a change in public opinion, where a plurality of people say they would now vote to remain in the EU, and nearly two thirds of people disapprove of the way the government is handling Brexit negotiations.
