Nigel Farage quizzes leading Remainer Lord Andrew Adonis over his campaign for a People's Vote, and things got very heated.

Lord Adonis told Nigel Farage that it is vital for Theresa May to listen to the people who marched on central London for a second referendum on leaving the European Union.

But Nigel Farage responded to the Labour peer by saying that if a ballot asked to choose between the Prime Minister's Chequers deal and remaining in the EU, he would not be able to vote.

"It wouldn't be giving me the option of leaving the European Union," he argued.

But Lord Adonis stumbled when Nigel asked whether he accepts the referendum result to leave.

"The truth is there was no actual proposition for leave on the ballot," he said.

Nigel replied: "I think this is the weakness of your argument, we voted to leave!"
