MPs, celebrities call for 'people's vote' on Brexit

Sir Patrick, 77, was joined by MPs from across the political spectrum as he opened a People's Vote rally attended by more than 1,200 people in London.

Opening the London launch of People's Vote - a new grassroots movement campaigning for a referendum on the final deal - Sir Patrick said Brexit will mean he will show his new Blue passport "with less pride".

Stewart, who portrayed psychic Professor Charles Xavier in the Hollywood series after finding global fame as the Star Fleet captain, appeared on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show yesterday as he prepared to launch the People's Vote campaign group. "That is why so many are demanding a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal". "If the general public demand a Individuals's Vote, politicians will fall in line".

However, both the Tories and Labour have ruled out the possibility of a referendum on the subject and time to change their minds is running out.

The actor even said that his X-Men character Charles Xavier would have supported the Remain campaign.

The UK is due to leave the European Union in March 2019 following the referendum which saw Britain vote 51.9% to leave and 48.1% to remain.

Chuka Umunna, MP for Lambeth, which had the highest Remain vote in the country, said: "We need more Conservative members of Parliament to be as fearless as Anna and many others who defied the whip and put their country before their party".

"We'll do everything we can in Parliament for a people's vote".

Meanwhile, pro-Brexit demonstrators also turned up at the launch, and Conservative MP Nadine Dorries argued there was no public appetite for a second referendum. "The public don't want it".

"As time has gone by. the information that we are receiving about the terms and conditions of that separation are quite unlike the terms and conditions that were spoken of so loosely during the 2016 campaign", he told the BBC.

Sir Patrick went on to discuss his upbringing in working-class Yorkshire, where he witnessed the aftermath of the Second World War. "So the day we joined was one of the most exciting days of my adulthood", he added.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, responding to the new campaign, said the people's vote had already taken place, adding: "They voted with a substantial majority to leave the EU".

SIR PATRICK STEWART claimed Star Trek's Jean-Luc Picard would have voted Remain as he launched a campaign yesterday for a referendum on the final Brexit deal. "We're now trying to deliver on that mandate from the people".
