Former Blair adviser Alastair Campbell makes case for second Brexit referendum
Date created : Latest update :
Britain is scheduled to leave the European Union in two days, but Brexit is still clouded with uncertainty. FRANCE 24 spoke to Alastair Campbell, the press secretary to former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, about the deadlock.
British Prime Minister Theresa May heads to Brussels today to ask for another delay to Brexit as negotiations between her Conservative Party and the opposition Labour Party have yet to bear fruit.
Interviewed by FRANCE 24's Stuart Norval, Alastair Campbell lays out the case for a second referendum, a democratic option he admits could well worsen the UK's political chaos.
For Campbell, a second vote would be an opportunity to explain to voters that the Brexit they voted for in 2016 may not be quite what they expected.
