LABOUR Remainer Wes Streeting attempted to justify why he would still support a second referendum in the EU despite speaking to his constituents moments earlier who told him they had voted Leave in the 2016 Brexit vote.
The Ilford North MP Wes Streeting spoke to passers-by in the streets on the topic of Brexit and their feelings towards a second referendum. Ilford North majority voted to leave the EU but Mr Streeting is still pushing for a second referendum. The Labour MP then questioned a Brexiteer on her stance regarding Brexit and the possibility of a second opportunity to vote.
She said: “I voted to come out.
“And I don’t care about what anyone said that is how I feel.”
Mr Streeting then asked how the Brexiteer would vote in the event of a second referendum.
“But I hope there isn’t one because why should we.
“Do you vote twice for you to get in?”
The Labour Remainer continued to ask people on the street on their Brexit views and found a gentleman who said he would now change how he would vote.
He said: “I voted out, I voted to leave.
“If I had to vote in a second referendum now I would vote to stay in.”
Mr Steeting then explained his reasoning for still maintaining his Remain Brexit stance.
The MP said: “I would rather put my job at risk by opposing Brexit.
“Than vote to put my constituents jobs at risk by supporting it.”
