PARIS (Reuters) – The door is open for the possibility of Britain holding a second Brexit referendum, said France’s European affairs minister Nathalie Loiseau on Thursday.
“The door remains open, but it will be up to them to choose, not us,” Loiseau told French TV station CNews.
There has been increasing speculation in British political circles and in the British media about a second Brexit referendum, with Prime Minister Theresa May facing deadlock in parliament over her deal to leave the European Union.
