Let public vote on final Brexit deal, says new United Kingdom campaign

The majority of people in the United Kingdom want a "people's vote" on the final Brexit deal, according to a new survey in which some 52% of respondents expressed support for the idea. Around 1,200 people attended the event, according to organisers.

Green MP Caroline Lucas will say: "We will be making the case in Parliament, but this is too big and too important to be determined exclusively by politicians".

Meanwhile, a separate survey by finance company Bibby Financial Services found that confidence at small and medium companies rose to its highest level since the second quarter of 2015 when the bill for an European Union referendum was first unveiled in the Queen's Speech.

"Brexit is not inevitable".

"Whether you think the government will negotiate a good deal or bad deal, Brexit is definitely a big deal", Open Britain's executive director James McGrory told AFP.

Anne Weyman, vice chair of Britain for Europe, stated: "We may come from different political parties, different traditions and different groups, but we are united by our desire for the people to have their say on the Brexit deal and we are determined to make sure their voice is heard loud and clear".

"Brexit will affect everybody in the country, which is why it should not be left to 650 politicians to decide our future but 65 million people".

RFS spokesman Greg Allan said on Sunday some properties had been damaged. By 5pm, some Menai residents were starting to relax.

Actor Patrick Stewart, best known from Star Trek, is also backing the campaign.

In the seismic June 2016 referendum on Britain's European Union membership, 52 percent of the UK's British, Irish and Commonwealth residents, plus Britons overseas who had lived in Britain in the last 15 years, voted to leave.

The People's Vote campaign would argue the public, not MPs, should get the final say on Brexit, he said. "We're now trying to deliver on that mandate from the people".

Barnier noted that British Prime Minister Theresa May assured the EU London would not engage in a race to the bottom in environmental protection and that her words were reflected in Britain's proposed 25-year plan on the environment.

Brexit remains a fractious topic in Britain, with less than a year to go until the country quits the EU.

Moran said any new referendum would have to happen after the deal is completed in October, and before Brexit day at the end of March - meaning campaigners are short on time.
