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

New 'people's vote' campaign calls for public to have final say on Brexit To boldly go... for ANOTHER vote! Star Trek veteran Sir Patrick Stewart joins call for referendum on final Brexit deal

Sir Patrick Stewart has declared that two of his most famous characters would have voted Remain, as he helped launch a campaign for a referendum on the final Brexit deal.

Speaking at a rally in London yesterday afternoon, Stewart (78) told a crowd of more than 1,200 people that he "will not stand idly by" while Britain's "future is at stake".

Britain is due to end its membership of the European Union next March, with both the governing Conservatives and main opposition Labour parties rejecting calls for a second referendum. Pro-Brexit campaigners also gathered outside.

The actor even said that his X-Men character Charles Xavier would have supported the Remain campaign. 'Our country's future is at stake and we will not stand idly by, ' he said. "If the public demand a People's Vote, politicians will fall in line".

Both Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives and the Labour Party have ruled out a second referendum after Britons voted 52-48% to leave the bloc nearly two years ago, and the country is due to leave the European Union in March next year.

The organizers suggest that the 2016 referendum on Brexit should not be taken as final.

He mentioned Brexit would permit Britain to "boldly go" to areas it has uncared for within the seek for new free commerce offers.

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.

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".

He said: "The campaign for the People's Vote is simply requesting that we have another chance to consider what the terms of this divorce are going to be".

He said: "The cost of war was everywhere and many never recovered from it".

Stewart told the BBC he is supporting the People's Vote because the terms and conditions coming out of the negotiations are very different from those discussed during the 2016 referendum campaign. What I am motivated by is history and emotion.

"I think we'll get a great result and we'll be able to have, not only a enormous free trade deal with our friends and partners across the channel, but we'll be able to boldly go to areas we perhaps neglected over the past five years".
