March 2019 – Second BREXIT Referendum Support – Flash POLL
Even if UK Parliament rejected a second BREXIT amendment proposed by the Independent Group (Ms Wollaston), Labour and Tory Mp's confirm that the question of a fresh referendum stays on the table but "in the right time" they say.
The most suggestive move came from Labout party, where, defying party orders, 25 Labour MPs voted for Ms Wollaston’s motion, while 18 broke ranks to vote against it. Shadow ministers Yvonne Fovargue, Emma Lewell-Buck and Justin Madders, whip Stephanie Peacock and parliamentary private secretary Ruth Smeeth all resigned over the issue. Dozens more of the party’s MPs who support a People’s Vote also refused to back the proposal, writes The Independent.
Most of the pro People's Vote supporting MPs focused on voting an article 50 delay and waited for a better chance to push for a second referendum. In a statement explaining their decision to abstain, more than 30 of them said they were instead waiting to back a different amendment, being drawn up by Labour backbenchers Peter Kyle and Phil Wilson, that would see parliament withhold support for Theresa May’s Brexit Deal until she put it to a public vote.
So, long story short, a second BREXIT referendum is still on the table for many MP's and we can still see this idea pushed for vote again in the Parliament.
