Britons should be given second Brexit vote، says former foreign minister
Sunday 13/August/2017 - 12:25 PM
Former British foreign minister David Miliband called on Saturday for voters to be given a second referendum on whether Britain should leave the European Union، according to "Reuters". Writing in the Observer newspaper Miliband، foreign minister under a Labour government between 2007 and 2010، called Brexit an "unparalleled act of economic self-harm" and said there should be another public vote once the final terms of Britain's exit are known.
Although no longer a serving British politician، Miliband - brother of former Labour leader Ed Miliband - is still seen as an influential centrist voice.
His criticism joins that of a growing number of pro-EU figures from across the political spectrum who say Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy is economically damaging and that voters should be given a chance to halt the process.
