More than 80 MPs are said to be plotting to stage a vote calling for another referendum of the terms of Brexit, it has emerged.
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, who has already pledged to vote against the triggering of Article 50 along with a group of other MPs, said they will now stage Parliamentary vote to call for a second Brexit referendum.
Eighty-four politicians will reportedly support Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron in staging the vote, a source told The Telegraph.
On Friday Mr Farron said unless a referendum was called his party would vote against the Government on the triggering of Article 50.
He told the BBC: “Article 50 would proceed but only if there is a referendum on the terms of the deal and if the British people are not respected then, yes, that is a red line and we would vote against the government.“
The Lib Dem leader described the potential deal as a “stitch-up” that no one voted for, telling the BBC Radio 4’s Todayprogramme: “We believe what started with democracy in June must not now end up as a stitch-up deal being imposed on the British people that absolutely no one voted for.”
