The Ealing audience member got into a heated debate with another man who called for a second vote before lambasting any thought of a People’s Vote. Within his impassioned speech, the man insisted another referendum would be damaging to democracy. The audience member said: “It is nothing but the sheer arrogance of the people that have lost, and people that want to subvert democracy.
“Get on with what the people voted for.
“People voted for a reason and it will be the end of democracy in this country if we can’t honour what Parliament said they would do.”
The audience member’s attack came after Labour’s Clive Lewis and the SNP’s leader in Westminster engaged in a debate with Conservative Party Deputy Chairman, James Cleverly over a People’s Vote.
The chances of a second referendum had seemingly been given a boost earlier this week as Theresa May’s Brexit deal was once again defeated in Parliament on Tuesday.
Just a day later MPs voted in favour of a removing a no deal Brexit in what Nigel Farage deemed in his Daily Telegraph column, a threat to the original referendum result.
Despite that, yesterday MPs crushed an amendment calling for a second referendum.
The amendment was defeated by a staggering 334 votes to 85 despite that mammoth defeat, it is still incredibly unclear how Brexit will play out.
Within his scathing attack, the audience member continued: “Parliament has had two years to do this and they haven’t done it.
“It’s not the people’s fault, it’s Parliament’s fault for not getting its house in order.
“For MPs to insist that they need more time is because they’ve failed.”
Yesterday, a motion was passed acknowledging that the original March 29 exit date is now not plausible.
The amendment proposed a delay to Brexit until June 30 but only if Theresa May’s deal is passed ahead of an EU summit next week.
