The former Labour MP faced criticism after the Liberal Democrats changed their policy from holding a People’s Vote to revoking a democratic vote as Mr Ummuna explained a general election is in effect a People’s Vote. But Sky News host Sarah-Jane Mee noted the drastic change causes unrest in the party when there wasn’t any, to begin with. She went on to point out a huge flaw in their plan to revoke the Brexit vote as they would officially need to hold a second referendum.

Ms Mee said: “Do you think you’ve perhaps gone a step too far? Your policy on Brexit was clear, it was backing a People’s Vote or a second referendum, whatever people wish to call it.

“A lot of people are looking at the Liberal Democrats and saying, ‘that’s the only party that is showing unity on Brexit at the moment in terms of their thinking’.

“You’ve now got Liberal Democrat members saying you can’t cancel Brexit without officially having a second referendum without going back to the people again in that respect.

“You’ve just created unrest in your party where there wasn’t any.”
