New campaign calls for 'people's vote' on final Brexit deal

The day of action is being organised by the European Movement, Open Britain and Britain for Europe, with more than 100 events planned across the United Kingdom, from Aberdeen to Falmouth.

Green MP Caroline Lucas will say: "We will be making the case in Parliament, but this is too big and too important to be determined exclusively by politicians".

"This issue is far too important to to leave to the politicians".

Lawmakers from the governing Conservative Party, as well as the opposition Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green parties, and Sir Patrick addressed the crowd.

James McGrory, executive director of the Open Britain campaign group, said: "Our largest ever national day of action is all about bringing together the various pro-European groups so that we can speak with one unified voice, because we know that together we are stronger".

"Brexit is not inevitable".

'Since the 2016 referendum, there has been a concerted effort by many - including government - to shut down debate about Brexit and to tell us that we should simply trust ministers to get on with it because Brexit is an irreversible process. It should not be a done deal.

"Brexit will affect everybody in the country, which is why it should not be left to 650 politicians to decide our future but 65 million people".

The actor, famous for his roles in Star Trek and X-Men, even said his fictional character Charles Xavier would have supported the Remain campaign.

He added that "history and emotion" led him to want to stay in the EU.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson ridiculed the campaign, pointing out that the people's vote has already taken place.

Sir Patrick told the crowd that the day Britain joined the European Union on January 1, 1973, was one of the best days of his life.

"I think we'll get a great result and we'll be able to have, not only a huge free trade deal with our friends and partners across the channel, but we'll be able to boldly go to areas we perhaps neglected over the past five years".

The UK will formally leave the European Union on March 29 2019, two years after the invocation of Article 50. Both sides are hoping to reach a deal by October, which would allow enough time for ratification.
