Thousands of demonstrators from the group marched through central London on Saturday. This took place whilst MPs passed an amendment from Sir Oliver Letwin, a former Tory minister, mandated another Brexit extension. The Letwin amendment was passed by 322-306.
Responding to a tweet by the campaign’s Twitter account that said another vote would be delivering the will of the people Mr Morgan disagreed.He declared: “No, that’s a few thousand bad losers trying to overturn the democratic vote of 17.4m people.”Tony Blair’s former Director of Communications, Alastair Campbell tweeted the deal should not be backed by accusing Mr Johnson of being untrustworthy and of lying.Mr Campbell’s name on Twitter is ‘Alastair People’s Vote Campbell’.
Mr Morgan said: “We trusted you & Tony Blair that Iraq had WMD.“Your ‘mistake’ cost over a million lives including 179 members of U.K. armed forces, and wrecked the Middle East.“So on balance, I really wouldn’t play the trust card if I were you.”Earlier, he even asked the People’s Vote: “If you did ever get another vote why should any of us accept the result?”READ MORE: Corbyn dodged Brexit embarrassment - MPs think he could lose 100 SEATS
In 2003 British and American forces invaded Iraq after intelligence suggested dictator Saddam Hussein had chemical and biological weapons.No evidence of weapons of mass destruction was found.Mr Morgan also parodied the demands of Remainers when asked if he would respect Twitter poll by Good Morning Britain, showing 59 percent wanted him to leave the show.Mr Morgan said: “People didn’t know what they were voting for and were lied to by the Leave campaigners - so I will ignore the result and demand another one.”DON'T MISSBrexit blocker Oliver Letwin’s history of angering votersBoris writes letter to Brussels but urges EU to send UK a messageRees-Mogg and his son need police escort as Remainers shout vile abuse
He voted remain in the referendum but now backs leave.Mr Morgan said in column for the Spectator in April that he was not then convinced Brexit would be a good idea.But he noted: “However, if there was a second EU referendum, I would vote Leave.
“Not because I’ve experienced some Damascene conversion to the Brexit cause - I haven’t met anyone who has changed their mind about it and suspect those people don’t exit outside Alastair Campbell’s hysterical Remoaner mind.“I find this assault on our democracy far more sinister than anything that might befall us in the event of a no-deal departure.”Boris Johnson has said in the letter to the EU, his Government will attempt to push the legislation through against next week to ratify a new deal.
The Prime Minister has written a letter to abide by the terms of the Benn Act, requesting an extension, but refused to sign it.Another letter, one he did sign, said he felt an extension would harm both the UK and EU.Mr Johnson has repeatedly vowed to take Britain out of the EU on October 31 with or without a formal withdrawal agreement.
