According to Sky News, UK ministers are beginning to ask constituents if they still want to go ahead with Brexit, which is beginning to look more like an economic hazard.

Key quotes

“Alistair Burt, an experience Foreign Office minister, has been collecting voters’ views for weeks, asking how they would vote in another nationwide poll.  A form on his website asks them: “Do you support a further vote on the referendum?”

Constituents are also asked what the vote would cover.  Four options are offered: A vote on the final deal; a re-run of the original referendum with in/ out choices; three choices – a “soft” Brexit, a “hard” Brexit or no Brexit; or no further vote.

Prime Minister Theresa May has categorically ruled out a fresh vote on Brexit and insisted Britain will leave the EU on 29 March 2019.  Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has also confirmed he is not calling another referendum.

Sky News understands activists from the pro-EU campaign People’s Vote have emailed supporters who live in Mr Burt’s constituency, North East Bedfordshire, to urge them to take part.
