Labour MP Kate Hoey took to the stage and announced that a “great betrayal” had begun to sweep Britain amidst increasingly fervent calls for a second referendum. She warned: “Despite everything, despite the attacks, despite the incredible abuse that we’ve all had, we’re bigger than ever. We’re stronger than ever, right across the country.
“And we need to be strong for what is going to be happening in the next few months.
“Because let us be quite clear tonight – the great betrayal has begun.
“In fact, it begun a few months ago.
“But it is now really moving apace.
“Slowly those who’ve never wanted us to honour the referendum are sensing and waiting for people to show weakness.
“And there are a lot of people with weakness in our government.”
Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage, who also spoke at the event, said Brexiteers should get ready for the possibility of a second referendum.
He said: “Let us prepare, let us organise.
“If I have to fight again against this lot, then believe me, next time, as far as I’m concerned, it’s no more Mr Nice Guy.”
Meanwhile, Theresa May has said it is “impossible” for the Government to rule out a no-deal Brexit.
In a letter to Jeremy Corbyn, the Prime Minister said it was “not within the Government’s power” to guarantee no-deal, as this could be done only by securing Parliament’s approval for a withdrawal agreement or by overturning the result of the 2016 referendum, something she was not prepared to do.
