This week Jeremy Corbyn stuck two fingers up at Remainers.

When the time came to vote on the People's Vote amendment, he sat on his hands and ordered his MPs to do the same. My colleagues and I were livid - and judging by the reaction on social media, so were millions of Remainers.

If we've learnt anything this week, it's that Brexit is too important to be left in the hands of the politicians - a People's Vote is the only way forward.

Brexit has become a national embarrassment.

News outlets all over the world were leading with one thing last week - "UK Commons Chaos". It's a farce.
