Prime Minister Boris Johnson has insisted the UK will officially leave the European Union by the end of October this year, with or without a deal, as he demands changes to the withdrawal agreement. But, the European Union have refused to budge and repeatedly said the withdrawal agreement is not up for renegotiation. With the UK scheduled to leave the bloc on October 31, some pro-EU MPs have suggested they will try to bring down the Government in the event of Britain looking like no deal is the reality.
But, speaking on talkRADIO, a furious radio caller, known as Harry, form Portsmouth, raged at Remainers demands for another Brexit vote.
He said: “It is the only time in my life, and I think in history, under so-called ‘democracy’, where a decision is made, a Government is formed, and the actual vote is questioned.
“If we vote for a Labour Government or a Tory Government, we do not get two or three years of questioning that we voted wrong.
“We don’t get five years, from 1979 of Labour saying, ‘We shouldn’t have voted for Mrs Thatcher, she was all wrong, we need to have a second vote’.
“We don’t get the referendums in Scotland and Wales…No one in Wales ever said ‘let’s have a second referendum’.”
The host stepped in pointing out margins won in previous referendums have been tight before, but not questioned.
The caller continued before he surprisingly attacked “sneaky Cameron” for the creation of different Mayors across certain parts of the country.
The talkRADIO host was left laughing before he joked: “Look what we need now is more tiers of Government and more tears of politicians, right?”
With the EU refusing to budge on the withdrawal agreement, Cabinet minister Michael Gove has said the Government is doing “everything possible” to ensure Britain is ready to leave the EU at the end of October “come what may”.
On Tuesday, Mr Gove accused the EU of refusing to engage in negotiations, insisting it was still possible there could be a deal before the October 31 deadline, even though both sides appeared deadlocked.
He said: ”At the moment, the EU appears to be putting up the barriers, saying that they don’t want to talk

“I’m sure they will change their mind, I hope they will change their mind, but we are ready to leave on October 31 deal or no deal.”
Pro-EU Tory MP Dominic Grieve said on Monday there were “a number of things which the House of Commons can do, including bringing down the Government via a vote of no-confidence and setting up a new government in its place.”
Rebels have hinted under the Fixed-Term Parliaments Act, if the Government lost a vote of confidence MPs could seek to put a new government of national unity in its place – before going to the EU to ask for a further Brexit extension.
But, the remark was dismissed by the Prime Minister’s special adviser, Dominic Cummins, who reportedly suggested Mr Johnson would not necessarily have to resign, even if he lost a vote of no-confidence, or could even delay the timing of a potential general election until after Britain has left the EU….CLICK BELOW TO READ FULL ARTICLE
