The UK is edging toward the October 31 exit date and as of yet, many predict that Boris Johnson will deliver a no deal Brexit. With the time ticking on the UK’s departure from the EU, former chairman of the Remain campaign, Lord Rose of Monewden has concluded that Parliament must respect the referendum result.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Lord Monewden insisted that the UK must respect the democrat process.
He added: “We made our decision, it’s democratic decision, let’s go with it in the best possible way we can.
“I am a Remainer but I do believe in a democratic process.
“My personal view is that we have to get on with it.

“I’m rather sad that we haven’t already got on with it.”
Moreover, in an attack on the state of negotiations before Mr Johnson’s arrival as Prime Minister, the Tory peer also concluded that the UK should have already agreed to a “friendly divorce”.
In a blow to some who believe in the idea of having a second referendum, Lord Monewden also agreed that a second vote would only be damaging to UK businesses.
The news of Lord Monewden’s admission comes in the wake of Mr Johnson’s letter to the European Council demanding that the Irish backstop be scrapped.
