Remainer Femi Oluwole was ordered to apologise to the British nation for the division he has caused over Brexit. TalkRADIO host Dan Wootton put the question to the leading Remain campaigner, asking why he “can’t get over it and move on”. Guido Fawkes reporter Tom Harwood echoed this, claiming that Mr Oluwole was “irrelevant now”.

Mr Wootton said: “The referendum in 2016 gave every single person in this country a vote.

“It was the biggest democrat vote in our history. Why do you not accept those results?

“Why don’t you move on, why don’t you get over it? If Keir Starmer can get over it, why don’t you?

“You should apologise to the British nation for the division you have caused.”

Mr Oluwole responded: “Do all Brexit voters support this Brexit? The answer is clearly no.

“The DUP don’t support it, the Brexit Party don’t support it, even Boris Johnson has said his Brexit deal is unfair.

“He broke international law to undermine it. It is a complete nonsense.”

Guido Fawkes reporter Tom Harwood schooled Mr Oluwole on his claims: “There have been legitimate electoral events over the last four years.

“There was a referendum where the Leave side won by a million and a half more votes than the Remain side.

“There were European elections, there were two general elections.

“In every single case, the most votes and the most seats went to the parties that backed Brexit.

He added: “All the legitimate electoral events have repeatedly endorsed the decision to the leave the EU.

“Femi, you’re irrelevant now”.

This comes after Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was told by ex-shadow ministers to apologise for Labour’s Brexit position.

Three former shadow ministers have argued that Sir Keir’s policy during Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership had left many of the party’s leave-backing traditional supporters “in a rage”.

The party went into the election promising a second referendum, a stance seen as largely led by Starmer, who was then the shadow Brexit secretary.
