The amendment is signed by a cross-party group of MPs that includes Conservatives Lee Rowley and George Eustice alongside Labour’s Caroline Flint and Gareth Snell.

It reads: “Believes that the result of the 2016 EU referendum should be respected and that a second EU referendum would be divisive and expensive and therefore should not take place”.

Tory MP Lee Rowley said of the amendment this morning: “Along with 110 other MPs, I’m today proposing that Parliament votes against a second referendum on Brexit. We believe Parliament should honour the real people’s vote – the decision already made in 2016.”

Fellow Conservative MP Chris Green also pledged: “I will do all I can to respect the democratic decision to leave the EU which was made in the 2016 Referendum and Parliament’s decision to trigger A50 and take us out of the EU on 29th March 2019.”

The country was promised politicians would implement their decision in 2016 and that it was a once in a lifetime vote. 17.4 million Leavers now expect to see the result implemented, as promised. A second referendum would destroy faith and trust in democracy even more than it has been with the ridiculous shenanigans we’re seeing in Westminster right now.
