BRITAIN should not have another Brexit vote and waste £80million to hold the referendum, an LBC host has claimed. Nigel Farage said he was coming round to the idea of a second Brexit vote to stop Remoaners efforts once and for all. But Iain Dale has criticised the idea, branding the plan for another vote on EU membership as “madcap”. He said: “Nigel Farage has spent the last 18 months decrying calls for a second referendum, rightly so in my view and he's done this because he said it would disrespect the views of the 17.4 million people who voted for Brexit. “We can't have never-ending referendums. What do we want? Best of three? Best of five? To my mind these are once in a generation activities, you have a referendum and then it's off the table for the next 30 or 40 years. “We had one in 1975, we had one in 2016, we do not need another one now.” Speaking on his LBC show, Dale admitted that he thought if there was another vote, Leave would win again, but this time with a bigger majority. But the presenter argued another vote would be a waste of money. He said: “Being a Leave supporter, I’m not afraid of anything. “Why would we want to spend another 80 million pounds when 17.4 million people, the most that have backed anything in any referendum or any election in this country in history, we've already made that decision? “Otherwise we shouldn't be having any referendums in this country if we're just going to have them again and again and again. “So who benefits here? Well, it's certainly not the British negotiating position because by even raising this prospect I believe that Nigel Farage has undermined our negotiating position in Brussels. “The European Commission will be licking their lips at the prospect of this and it will encourage them to give us a worse deal than they maybe even thought they were going to give us and I suspect that is pretty bad.” Nigel Farage today said a second vote would kill off the issue for a “generation” and send Tony Blair to “total obscurity”. The Prime Minister responded to Mr Farage’s comments, insisting a second vote would be a betrayal of voters and weaken her position at the Brexit negotiations. Conservative Brexiteers have also been critical of the idea with Nigel Evans claiming that another vote would be an attack on democracy. Mr Evans added he did not think a second Brexit vote would stop Remoaners from trying to block the will of the British people.
