Mr Grimes hit back and explained a general election is the way forward as it gives the public legitimate options but doesn’t believe a People’s Vote would solve anything. Speaking to Sky News, Mr Oluwole said: “You’re saying we should simply be ready to leave without a deal.If anybody has been paying attention to anything over the past three years, they will know that there are many different ways of doing Brexit.

“Ranging for Norway-style deal to Theresa May’s deal, a no deal and even Leave means Leave, that was chaired by Nigel Farage, has put out stats that show 69 percent of leave voters want no deal.

“69 percent of 52 percent is 36 percent, 48 percent voted to stay in the EU so, there is no majority for that.

“The only point of a general election is because we can’t decide what we’re going to do with Brexit which means you’re essentially going to use it like a second referendum.

“The problem with that is what happened in the last election. In 2017 54 percent voted for parties that had manifestos which ruled out no deal yet a majority of seats went to parties in favour of no deal.
