Voters deserve a second chance, the party's chairman claims
The Britain's Liberal democrat Party would vote against triggering Brexit process unless the government promises to hold another referendum on leaving the EU, the party's chairman Tim Farron said on Friday.
"We'd vote against Article 50 if our 'red line' is not met... which is we want to respect the will of the people and that means they must have their say on a referendum on the terms of the deal," he told BBC radio, the Reuters agency reports.
Earlier, London's High Court ruled that leaving the EU would also require an approval by the Parliament, along with the government's decision.
According to the British PM Theresa May, the Article 50 must be invoked in March 2017, triggering a two-year formal process of the country's leaving the EU.
