LONDON (AP) - Opponents of Britainâ€™s departure from the European Union are floating the idea of setting up a new anti-Brexit political party. James Chapman, a former top aide to Brexit Secretary David Davis, has become an outspoken critic of Britainâ€™s looming departure from the 28-nation bloc.
He is calling for a new centrist political party because both the governing Conservatives and main opposition Labour parties say they will go through with the decision to leave.
Chapman said Friday â€śthere is an enormous gap in the center now of British politicsâ€ť that could be filled by an anti-Brexit force. He said that two members of Prime Minister Theresa Mayâ€™s Cabinet have contacted him to express support.
