Billionaire Richard Branson Calls For ‘Non-binding’ Brexit Vote To Be ‘Rejected’

Billionaire businessman Richard Branson is calling on Parliament to “reject” the “nonbinding” Brexit vote and is demanding a second referendum. Mr. Branson has insisted the vote was “technically an advisory non-binding referendum for MPs to consider” which should be instantly reconsidered as the public had voted against big business and  globalisation. He wrote on his blog: “The vast majority of MPs voted in by the electorate want the UK to stay part of Europe. In light of the misrepresentations of the Leave campaign, Parliament should reject the results of this non-binding referendum as Nicola Sturgeon has announced she will do in Scotland’s Parliament.” Adding: “Before the UK government invokes Article 50 of the European Treaty and does irreversible damage to the United Kingdom, the people’s elected representatives must decide whether the facts that have emerged really warrant abandoning the EU and whether a second referendum will be needed.” More than 3m people have called for a new EU referendum. Parliament must act: — Richard Branson (@richardbranson) June 27, 2016 Mr. Branson ran through the now familiar arguments to suggest that the referendum result was somehow invalid— as voters were lied to and are too stupid to assess the facts
