Umunna - “for the first time in his life Farage making a valid point”

Nigel Farage this morning told the Wright Stuff on Channel 5 that he was “reaching the point of thinking” that there should be a further referendum on British membership of the European Union.

Commenting, Chuka Umunna MP, leading supporter of the Open Britain campaign, said:

“For perhaps the first time in his life, Nigel Farage is making a valid point. In a democracy like ours, the British people have every right to keep an open mind about Brexit.

“If the Brexit that is delivered does not match up to the promises of Leave campaigners - with no sign of £350 million extra per week for the NHS but a whopping great divorce bill of £39 billion - then everyone is entitled to ask if this is the right choice for our country.”
