The Sunday Times: John Major: let’s take time out and revoke article 50 Tim Shipman13 January 2019 | 03:59 | FOCUS News Agency
Sir John Major today demands that the government should revoke article 50 to halt Britain’s departure from the EU and hand control to parliament instead.
Writing in The Sunday Times, the former Tory prime minister says Theresa May should rescind existing Brexit legislation and call another referendum, arguing that “a new process” of national consultation is required.
Major warns that it would be “morally reprehensible” to slip into a no-deal Brexit, saying: “The cost . . . to our national wellbeing would be heavy and long-lasting. The benefits are close to zero. Every single household — rich or poor — would be worse off for many years to come. Jumping off a cliff never has a happy ending.”
