UK may end up having second Brexit vote if PM May’s exit plan rejected

Britain could end up holding a second referendum on its membership of the European Union if Prime Minister Theresa May’s plan for Brexit is rejected, a government minister told Sky News on Wednesday.

“Those to the right of the party – the pro-Brexit wing – will be very concerned that if that deal doesn’t prevail, they’ll end up in the situation where we could have a second referendum and we could end up not leaving the EU altogether. There is a danger of that happening,” said Mel Stride, a minister in Britain’s finance ministry.
