Justine Greening has called for a second referendum, calling the prime minister’s Brexit deal a “fudge”. Greening, who famously ‘came out’ as openly Lesbian is employing increasingly sneaky remain tactics by trying to reach out to leave voters who are wavering on the decision as she said Westminster is run by “deadlocked politicians” .
She states there are three options: the PM’s deal, staying in the EU or a clean break from Europe with no deal. Greening, who resigned after the cabinet reshuffle in January, said the referendum should offer a first and second preference vote so that a consensus can be reached. Greening of course was a high profile remainer and is still one.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Greening said the government’s proposals were a “genuine clever attempt at a compromise that could work” but “suits no-one”.
The MP for Putney said:
“The reality is Parliament is now stalemated. Whatever the proposal on the table, there will be MPs who vote it down. But Britain needs to find a route forward. We’ll be dragging Remain voters out of the EU for a deal that means still complying with many EU rules, but now with no say on shaping them. It’s not what they want, and on top of that when they hear that Leave voters are unhappy, they ask, ‘What’s the point?’ For Leavers, this deal simply does not deliver the proper break from the European Union that they wanted.”
The facts are that if Parliament imposes a second referendum on the people of the UK without a democratic mandate then democracy is officially DEAD in the UK!
