Gove admits final say may go to the people

Responding to comments from Michael Gove that a People’s Vote is possible, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:

The Government has made a Horlicks out of Brexit and now one of its chief architects has admitted that the final say might go back to the people.

Nobody voted for this bad deal.

Michael Gove is right. If Parliament rejects the deal, the Liberal Democrats and many others across the House will demand a People’s Vote with an option to remain in the EU.

    On the Andrew Marr Show on Sunday 2/12/2018 Michael Gove explicitly said that the reason he is backing the PM’s Brexit proposal is that “I like being Environment Secretary”. He did not mention Ministerial cars but the point is clear. As Dr Liam Fox said the Cabinet “supports the PM’s plan or they would not be members of the Cabinet.”

    I’m hoping that the PM’s deal is defeated next week. Then what happens matters less assuming a no deal exit is also defeated. I can live with another General Election, TM’s resignation or both though prefer legislation for a people’s vote. We should get some political support from the latter though the precise wording and timing is important. There must be time for a thorough debate with the options and implications clearly explained. Allowing 16 year olds, most of those living here and expatriates with ties to this country to vote would be excellent.
