Andrew Neil confronted about MP, Chuka Umunna, who supports a second Brexit vote.
Dubbed a ‘Peoples Vote’, MPs are now growing in numbers for support for a second referendum which they say would have the option to remain in the EU.
BBC Politics Live host, Andrew Neil, showed the Labour MP past footage of him denouncing the idea of a second vote, leaving Chuka seemingly embarrassed.
Umunna told Neil: “The problem is the circle that parliament has been trying to square frankly over the last two to three years is trying to deliver the form of Brexit that was promised.
“Which has proven absolutely impossible to do.
“It is worth stating I haven’t always been in favour a People’s vote.”
The TV host then showed the Labour MP a video of himself claiming he would not support a second vote.
During the video, Mr Umunna said: “I’m sorry, I’m not one of those people who thinks we should be calling for a second referendum. I think that would just look like, the referendum was fought under rules we agreed to, a result was delivered, because we don’t like it we now want to replay it again.
“This will simply entrench a view that we’re some elite, who don’t want to pay any attention to the people.”
Chuka then attempted to justify why he changed his mind, saying: “The reason why we are arguing for a People’s vote is so people can think again whether they want to press on with this in light of the circumstances.
“I felt Parliament owed a duty to the people to try and deliver a form of Brexit in the way that it was promised to the British people.
“And that has proven absolutely impossible.”
