Anne Weyman, vice chair of Britain for Europe, stated: "We may come from different political parties, different traditions and different groups, but we are united by our desire for the people to have their say on the Brexit deal and we are determined to make sure their voice is heard loud and clear".

A promise to that end, he said, should be written down in the treaty that will regulate relations between London and the 27 countries that will remain in the European Union after Britain leaves at the end of March 2019.

Both the Conservatives and Labour have officially ruled out a second referendum.

The survey was conducted earlier this week, ahead of a campaign launched by Open Britain calling for a public vote on whatever Brexit deal British Prime Minister Theresa May presents to parliament. "It should not be a done deal".

It added that the group of mostly former British Empire nations, which are home to 2.4billion people, traded nearly £400billion of goods and services with each other in 2016.

Sir Patrick Stewart, the veteran actor widely known for his leading role in the Star Trek and X-Men franchises, today tried to shift the campaign for another Brexit referendum into warp speed.

Green MP Caroline Lucas will say: "We will be making the case in Parliament, but this is too big and too important to be determined exclusively by politicians. Together, are on the verge of something extraordinary".

The first step would be to convince enough lawmakers - crucially Labour and Conservative backbenchers, emboldened by demand from the public - to get a new referendum in legislation, likely through an amendment to a Brexit bill.

"Brexit will affect everybody in the country, which is why it should not be left to 650 politicians to decide our future but 65 million people".

Stewart added: "As time has gone by, the information that we are receiving about the terms and conditions of that separation are quite unlike the terms and conditions that were spoken of so loosely during the 2016 campaign".

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson ridiculed the campaign, pointing out that the people's vote has already taken place. "We're now trying to deliver on that mandate from the people".
