I believe conditions can be created in which the UK voters could decide not to leave the EU at all.

The terms for Brexit set out by British Prime Minister Theresa May will do incalculable damage to this island, politically, emotionally and economically.

We cannot simply wait for this to happen. While seeking to mitigate the effects of Mrs May's chosen hard Brexit, we must also do everything we can to ensure that there is no Brexit.
