Brexit vote may be reversed, says British campaigner Farage

From Reuters - January 14, 2018

LONDON (Reuters) - Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage said on Sunday he was increasingly concerned that a vote for Britain to leave the European Union could be overturned by a powerful group of the blocs supporters.

In an interview with Britains Observer newspaper, Farage, former head of the euroskeptic UK Independence Party, said awell-organized and funded group of campaigners that wants to remain in the EU was drowning out those who want to leave.

The Remain side are making all the running, said Farage. They have a majority in parliament, and unless we get ourselves organized we could lose the historic victory that was Brexit.

Last week, Farage said he was warming to the idea of holding a second vote on Britains membership of the EU to settle the argument - an idea written off by other Brexit campaigners who urged the government to press on with exit talks with the bloc.
