LONDON, Aug 12 (Reuters) - Former British foreign minister
David Miliband called on Saturday for voters to be given a
second referendum on whether Britain should leave the European
Writing in the Observer newspaper Miliband, 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, Miliband -
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 Prime
Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy is economically damaging
and that voters should be given a chance to halt the process.
