The European Movement in Northern Ireland (EMNI) – the longest established pro-European organisation in the North- has rejected comments by shadow international trade secretary, Barry Gardiner, that a referendum on the final Brexit deal would cause ‘social unrest’ and instead has called on the British Labour Party to support a Peoples Vote.

Extending the debate for months more "risks opening the door to a nightmare future of permanently polarised politics" - Theresa May offers a stark warning as she outlines new #Brexit bill offer https://t.co/s2UBu26D6f
The “new Brexit Deal “ might have worked 6 months ago. But it feels like positions have polarised in last 3 months - may be too little, too late to get support in Parliament. If it does get through second reading then we will see ongoing Parliamentary trench warfare thro summer. https://t.co/NEn7orR1hv
