Civil servants are beginning plans to betray Brexit by commencing secret plans for a second referendum amid fears Theresa May is unable to get Parliament to back a deal, after protestors marched on London calling for another vote.
Staff at the Department for Exiting the European Union are said to have role-played the likely actions the Prime Minister will undertake in a “war games” scenario, according to The Sunday Times.
Brexiteers Boris Johnson and Jacob Ree-Mogg were included in the war-game as well as James McGrory, the People’s Vote director.
A source told the paper: “Civil servants have to prepare for every eventuality and with the Prime Minister’s ability to command the support of parliament looking shakier by the day, it is their job to make contingency plans for every possibility, however remote, including a second referendum.”
It comes a day after Remainers took to the streets of London to march for a so-called “People’s Vote”. Organisers claim 670,000 people took part, but there is no independent verification of this number and the police haven’t provided an official estimate, either.
The contingency planning has also included working out if British members of the European Parliament could keep their jobs for an extra year in the event of a delay to exit day on March 29, 2019.
A Downing Street spokesman said: “The Prime Minister has been clear. There will be no second referendum. We had a people’s vote in 2016.
“A second referendum would really be a politicians’ vote — politicians telling the people they got it wrong the first time and should try again. That would do lasting damage to faith in democracy.”
May and her ilk, this Government, the Establishment, Big Business and the House of Lords have betrayed us.
Democracy? Don’t make me laugh. It’s a stitch up – plain and simple.
