People's Vote is a UK campaign group calling for a public vote on the final "Brexit deal between the UK and the European Union. The group was launched in April 2018 by a number of "MPs, as well as the actor "Sir Patrick Stewart.
In July 2017 an "all-party parliamentary group (APPG) on EU relations was established. Co-chairs are "Chuka Umunna MP ("Labour) and "Anna Soubry MP ("Conservative), the remaining members of the group comprise: "Jo Swinson MP ("Liberal Democrats), "Jonathan Edwards ("Plaid Cymru), "Stephen Gethins MP ("Scottish National Party), "Baroness Altmann (Conservative), "Lord Adonis (Labour), "Lord Kerr of Kinlochard ("Crossbench), "Baroness Bowles of Berkhamsted (Liberal Democrat) and "Lord Wigley (Plaid Cymru).
On 1 February 2018 "The Guardian reported that a grassroots coordinating group (GCG) representing more than 500,000 members, opposed to a hard Brexit, had formed with Umunna as its leader. Later that month it was reported that "George Soros's "Open Society Foundations had donated £182,000 to "European Movement UK and £35,000 to Scientists for EU, two of the grassroot groups.
In March 2018 "HuffPost reported that several "pro-EU groups had moved into an office together in London’s "Millbank Tower so that they could better co-ordinate their campaign to keep strong links between Britain and the European Union. This was also reported to be in order to work alongside the APPG on EU Relations. Umunna commented, “In our democracy, it is vital that the people get their say on Brexit, rather than their elected representatives in Parliament being reduced to some rubber stamp for whatever plan "Boris Johnson, "Jacob Rees-Mogg and "Michael Gove have been putting together behind closed doors".
People's Vote was launched at an event in London on 15 April 2018, at "The Electric Ballroom in Camden. The event comprised "Andy Parsons with MPs Chuka Umunna, Anna Soubry, "Layla Moran (Liberal Democrats) and Caroline Lucas speaking as well as actor "Sir Patrick Stewart. Lord Adonis also attended the event.
The campaign is a collaboration between several groups. They use a campaign office based in "Millbank central London, apart from Wales for Europe which is based in Wales. The European Movement UK and Britain for Europe also have roughly 150 local campaign groups.
