Alastair Campbell has told Julia Hartley-Brewer that the public should get a chance to vote on the terms of Brexit, as it becomes more clear that the country will be worse off under any agreement.

Tony Blair's former spokesperson said: "You can decide that because you’ve made your mind up, you’re not going to heed any of these arguments. But the British Government, which wants Brexit to happen, which is negotiating to try to get Brexit, they have admitted, to themselves, in their own discussions, that there is no deal they can do which won’t leave the county worse off." 

"It’s the biggest decision we are going to make. The people have given their instructions to the Government – get on and do it. As they go through the process, it is becoming clear that so many of the promises that were made were false, two that negotiations are going very badly, three that we are going to be worse off. 

 

"In those circumstances, if we really trust the people, why not say to them, the politicians can’t decide."
