I want to be explicit. Yes, the British people voted to leave Europe, and I agree the will of the people should prevail. I accept right now there is no widespread appetite to rethink. But the people voted without knowledge of the terms of Brexit. As these terms become clear, it is their right to change their mind.
Our mission is to persuade them to do so. I don't know if we can succeed, but I do know we will suffer a rancorous verdict from future generations if we don't try.
