Justine Greening, the former education minister from Theresa May’s cabinet, has joined the growing chorus for a second Brexit referendum.
On Monday, Justine Greening, the former education minister from Theresa May’s cabinet stated, the British parliament will vote down Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal and British citizens should be allowed a second referendum.
When asked whether there was any likelihood of May’s Brexit plans sailing through the British parliament, Greening said, “no”.
“I think it’s the worst of all worlds,” said Greening to to BBC radio. “It leaves us with less influence, less controls over the rules we have to follow and … less credibility as a country in the rest of the world as they would see that we would be prepared to go for a bad deal and we shouldn’t have to do that.”
She opined that the British parliament would most probably reject a “no deal” and vote against May’s proposal. There should be another referendum, said Greenings, with Britons given three options: remaining in the EU, stick to May’s deal, or fall back on World Trade Organization terms for trade.
