Plot to keep Britain IN the EU: Lord Hain warns of Brussels plan to reverse Brexit vote

28 Sep

Lord Hain’s comments at a fringe meeting at the Labour conference in Liverpool have sparked concerns that senior Remain figures and Brussels chiefs could be conniving to find a way to stop Britain Leaving.


The Labour grandee, who was a leading figure in the Remain camp, is still in touch with figures in Brussels and suggested that EU bosses would be willing to do what was necessary to keep Britain in the bloc.

Under the provisions of the Lisbon Treaty once Article 50 is triggered Britain is legally meant to Leave the EU within two years with no possibility of the process being reversed.

However, Lord Hain, who served as a cabinet minister under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, and was Europe Minister from 1999 to 2001, suggested that Brussels would change the rules.
