Stephen has acknowledged the “staggering” online petition which has asked to revoke Article 50. As of Monday, 6,888 people in East Ham had added their name .
The petition states: “We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now for remaining in the EU.” It has the highest sign-up rate on record.
Speaking to the Newham Recorder, Stephen said: “The petition is a staggering size with so many signing up. This reflects deep anxiety about where the UK is going and the prime minister’s leadership—she just hasn’t got the support.”
“I agree with the million people on Saturday’s march. Now we know what the deal is, we should have a public vote on whether to leave or stay in the EU.”
