Former UKIP leader, Nigel Farage, believes it may be time to hold a second referendum on Brexit to put an end to the “moaning” of politicians who have not accepted the previous vote.
Farage said leading political figures who have been arguing against Brexit would “never, ever, ever” stop fighting it and so the best way to draw a line under the issue could be a second public vote.

Speaking on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff, Mr Farage said: “What is for certain is that the Cleggs, the Blairs, the Adonises will never, ever, ever give up.
“They will go on whinging and whining and moaning all the way through this process.
“So maybe – just maybe – I’m reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum on EU membership.” Uk prime minister, Theresa May invoked Article 50 in March, 2017, but the challenges that has since accompanied talks between the UK and EU leaders has led to staunch supporters of the EU to call for a second referendum.
Unstable levels of inflation and the exchange rate has also contributed to the call for another referendum, but most Brexitiers have been against this. Farage is the last person most would expect to call for a second referendum, and his open approval for this may shift public thinking, but also anger those who feel strongly that we should press on with Brex
Mr Farage added: “If we had a second referendum on EU membership, we’d kill it off for a generation.
“The percentage that would vote to leave next time, would be very much bigger than it was last time round and we may just finish the whole thing off. Farage’s view is surprising and he is taking a big chance on this. His view will be welcome by the likes of ex prime minister, Tony Blair, who has campaigned for another vote on the most divisive issue to grip Britain in a generation.
Lord Adonis has also called for Labour to get behind the idea of a second referendum in an interview he gave with The Independent.
The Greens and Liberal Democrats, who are calling for a ‘referendum of the facts’, are also supporting the idea of having a further Brexit vote. It is very unlikely Britain will be having a second referendum, certainly not under Theresa May’s government. Otherwise it would send signals that the Brexit process is to much for the Conservative government to handle.
