Prime Minister Boris Johnson has insisted the UK will be leaving the EU with or without a deal by the end of October this year. Mr Johnson has demanded the backstop mechanism within the withdrawal agreement is ejected before negotiations between the UK and EU can restart, but so far the bloc has refused to budge, pushing Britain towards no deal. Speaking on LBC, Brexiteer radio host Iain Dale clashed with People’s Vote campaigner Femi Oluwole after the Remainer suggested votes in a general election should influence Brexit.

He said: “You referred to the argument that it doesn’t matter that 54 percent of people voted for parties whose manifestos explicitly ruled out no deal, because Parliament made the decision about Article 50.

“Sorry, who is sovereign here? It is the decision of the people. If 54 percent of the people vote for parties whose manifestos rule out no deal.”

But, the radio host quickly interrupted Mr Oluwole claiming his argument was a “complete misreading of the way the constitution works”.

Mr Dale said: “Parliament effectively delegated sovereignty on the decision as to whether to leave or not to the people, once the people had decided the people sent the sovereignty back to Parliament to decide what to do.”
