Brexit news: EU Supergirl blasted as TV host confronts campaign to end withdrawal | UK | News


The Remain campaigner, known as “EU Supergirl” on social media, said she wanted to help “change the narrative” over promote calls for a new referendum to stay in the . But as she insisted she wanted to put an end to the “division” the Brexit debate created, Sky News host Stephen Dixon suggested Ms Kay is helping foment division with her attempts to stop Britain from leaving the bloc. Mr Dixon said: “As someone who wants to reduce or stop division, you create division by campaigning against the results of a legally-held referendum.

A lot of people watching will say the way to move forward is to actually deliver on what we voted for which is to get out.”

The insisted delivering on the Brexit vote would not necessarily put an end to tensions gripping the country, and called for a more “diverse and inclusive” approach to the political debate.

She said: “I’m trying to stir things up a bit, shake things up because I think there’s a lot of things wrong with the UK at the moment.

“The way the political dialogue is being held, I think we need an alternative approach to the narrative to make it more diverse and inclusive and more positive, and stop the hate and the aggression and the division that is going on.

What is lacking, as a Remain campaigner, is a positive vision of the UK at the heart of the European Union and what I want to do is promote the EU and the benefits that it’s given to our lives and also the opportunities the EU presents especially to young people but to all of us as citizens.”

She continued: “In a democracy, everyone has the right to hold their views. It’s not as simple as Brexit or Remain on either side of the divide.

“There are so many different shades in between, so many different party political alliances. We need to change the way we are talking to each other in this country.”

While Ms Kay has been actively campaigning across the European Union to promote her message, Prime Minister pledged to deliver on the results of the referendum without further delay. 

Speaking at a press conference with President Macron on Thursday, Mr Johnson said: “Let’s get Brexit done, let’s get it done sensibly and pragmatically and in the interests of both sides and let’s not wait until October 31. Let’s get on now in deepening and intensifying the friendship and partnership between us.”

Brussels however repeatedly rejected UK calls to remove the backstop, with the bloc insisting the policy is “the only way” to make sure Ireland does not become a back door for goods to enter the single market.

The Prime Minister insisted in Paris that the backstop was not needed, and that there are “ways of protecting the integrity of the single market and allowing the UK to exit from the EU”.

Mr Johnson is hoping that the threat of a messy hard Brexit will convince EU leaders that the bloc should do a last-minute deal to suit his demands.

Brexit supporters say there may be some short-term disruption from a no deal exit, but that the UK will be better off outside the EU.
