Nigel Farage has suggested we SHOULD have a second referendum on the entire question of our EU membership – despite describing a Labour politician as a “dishonest, disconnected, twisted little weasel” for doing the same.
The UKIP MEP announced what has to count as the biggest u-turn in modern British political history on Channel 5 this morning:
EXCLUSIVE – Nigel Farage says “just maybe I’m reaching the point of thinking that we should have a second referendum on EU membership”.@Nigel_Farage | @Matthew_Wright | #wrightstuff pic.twitter.com/T0fROToskr

And he has now tweeted out the same proposal:
Maybe, just maybe, we should have a second referendum on EU membership. It would kill off the issue for a generation once and for all. https://t.co/FQxniMi5MA

It comes just three days after Farage’s rant against Labour peer Lord Adonis for suggesting the same thing:
What makes it even more surprising is that the two latest polls on a second referendum show a majority would vote to stay in the EU.
A Survation poll for the Mail on Sunday carried out on December 4 found the referendum result would be reversed in a new poll with a 52% to 48% win for remain.
A BMG poll for the Independent taken on December 16 found 51% of people wanted to stay in the EU compared to just 41% who want to leave.
So bring it on, Farage! Meanwhile we look forward to the Daily Mail splash branding you a ‘traitor’…
