A People's Vote Is The Only Democratic Way To Solve Brexit - Patrick Stewart
6 February 2019, 16:02
A second referendum is the only democratic way to solve the Brexit “mess”, Sir Patrick Stewart has told LBC.
The veteran actor said there was a “swell of movement” towards a so-called People’s Vote, but added “time is now a major issue”.
He also hit out at the Labour Party’s handling of Brexit, accusing them of “playing a game of politics”.
Speaking to LBC’s showbiz reporter Faye Lyons White, Sir Patrick said: “There is a such a swell of movement towards the people’s voice and a second referendum throughout the country.
“People are beginning to realise this is the only democratic way a decision can be made about this mess we’ve got ourselves in.”
He continued: “I was born in the 1940s, I was a war baby, this is the most serious situation I have lived in since then.”
Sir Patrick’s new film, The Kid Who Would Be King, is released nationwide on February 15.
