Voters must have a chance to question the terms of Brexit, a parliamentary candidate for Lichfield and Burntwood has said.
The Green Party has said it would hold a second referendum to help people decide on the deal the country is likely to get from the European Union.
Robert Pass, who is standing for the party in the Lichfield constituency, said a second vote was a logical decision.
“As a business owner, I would not dream of committing myself to a deal without agreeing to the terms and conditions,” he said. “You read the contract before you do the deal.
“You can read the contract before you buy insurance. You have a cooling off period to return a product you’ve bought but realise you don’t like or need. Phone contracts can be cancelled or changed. And yet, when it comes to making an enormous decision over the future of our country, Theresa May has said we must leave Europe, regardless of the terms and conditions.”
Mr Pass insisted the voice of the younger generation also needed to be heard about any decision that would impact on their future.
“The Green Party is promising a referendum will give the public two clear choices – stick with what we have, or sign up to the deal on offer,” he said “And like any deal, we will make sure those affected are involved.
“A Green referendum would give 16 and 17 year olds the vote, making sure that they have a say over their future instead of having that decision made for them.”
