Miliband joins chorus for second Brexit vote
Former British foreign minister says May's strategy is economically damaging
The former British foreign minister David Miliband called at the weekend for voters to be given a second referendum on whether Britain should leave the European Union.
Writing in The Observer newspaper Mr Miliband, the foreign minister under a Labour government between 2007 and 2010, called Brexit an "unparalleled act of economic self-harm" and said there should be another public vote once the final terms of Britain's exit are known.
Although no longer a serving British politician, Mr Miliband - the brother of former Labour leader Ed Miliband - is still seen as an influential centrist voice.
His criticism joins that of a growing number of pro-EU figures from across the political spectrum who say the prime minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy is economically damaging and that voters should be given a chance to halt the process.
