Video: Lawmakers debate petition calling for fresh Brexit vote

British lawmakers have debated a petition calling for a second referendum on Brexit, an idea backed by Remain supporters including the Scottish National Party, but rejected by the government and Conservative MPs

The heated discussion in Britain's House of Commons lasted more than three hours on Monday evening.\n\nThe public petition argues a fresh vote should be held as turnout was below 75 percent and fewer than 60 percent of voters backed the decision to leave the EU.\n\n(Source: euronews YouTube channel)
