THIS is the moment William Hague delivered a fantastic response to how he would vote in a second Brexit referendum. The former Conservative leader, who voted to Remain in the EU referendum in 2016, was quizzed over how he would vote in a

second Brexit vote. Lord Hague delivered a brilliant response after asked on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. He said: “Well, first of all, I would vote not to have

another referendum. I think it would be really the most divisive thing you could do. “I would be more likely actually to vote to Leave because I don’t think a country can go round in circles. You cannot be leaving the EU in 2016 and Remaining in it in

2018. “Once we have made a decision we have to stick to that decision and implement it as best we can. I don’t think it would be very good for this country to go through this entire argument again. “It would be the most divisive event in this

country since the arguments over Irish home rule at least, to try and go back over this issue. We should get on with it and make the best job we can with it. You can’t change your mind. “Imagine going back to the people of this country and saying ‘you

got this wrong in the referendum, you may have turned out in record numbers and most of the country voted to leave but nevertheless we think you got it wrong and we are going to run it again’. “Imagine the hate-filled campaign that would divide

this country. I do not think that is a price worth paying.” The Liberal Democrat leader has set out his view that there should be another Brexit vote at the end of the negotiating process. Sir Vince Cable claimed on Sunday that he believed he was gaining support from some Labour and Conservative MPs with his dream for another Brexit vote. He said: “I think it is very difficult to see any scenario where Brexit is better than the status quo. I think, in practice, the only way where popular verdict, where we have already had, it wasn’t very decisive, it was a majority, I think the only way where the public are going to accept a negation of Brexit, is if they are going to have a vote on it. “That’s why we argue, at the end of the process, people [should be asked] do they want to press on with what the Government has agreed or do they want an exit from Brexit. “I think that is a good position, and there’s surprisingly a large number of people in both the Tory and Labour Party are beginning to warm to it.” In a recent poll, conducted by Opinium, it was revealed the British public have little appetite for another EU referendum. There is support for leaving the EU with no deal with more voters opted for that outcome (37 per cent) than a transition period where the UK stays in the single market until a satisfactory deal is struck (25 per cent) or abandoning Brexit altogether and staying in the bloc (23 per cent).
