Brexit voters weren’t ‘brainwashed’ – they wanted a better Britain. Now it’s clear they won’t get it, we need a vote on the final deal | The Independent

All the promises made by leading Brexiteers have failed to materialise. More money for the NHS? A better deal on immigration? No effect on Northern Ireland? Quickly negotiated international trade deals? It turns out that none of these will actually happen

I voted to invoke Article 50 last year. I have never felt so uncomfortable going through the voting lobby in the House of Commons, but I did so because I believed Parliament, having determined to hold a referendum and approved the rules under which it was fought, had a duty to exhaust the process and try to deliver Brexit in the form that it was promised to the British people. This was always conditional on Brexit not being substantially or materially different to what the official Leave campaign promised, as I made clear in the House of Commons in 2016.

As we start 2017 and are now halfway through the negotiations, it is clear Brexit cannot be delivered in the form it was sold to the British people. This is not because people were lied to or brainwashed into voting a particular way by right-wing politicians and tabloids. Nor is it because of government incompetence, though undoubtedly incompetence reigns. But the 2016 referendum revolved around hypotheticals – neither side could say with certainty what would happen if the country voted Leave. Two years on, we now know for certain enough about what will happen, which no one could have predicted with certainty before.
