I cannot help but reflect on the fact that the speech of Peter Grant followed that of my right hon. Friend Sir Nicholas Soames, who called for calm and moderation in this debate. I am afraid that some of the language the hon. Gentleman used rather failed to rise to that challenge. For him now to call for a people’s vote when he never for an instant accepted the result of the people’s vote we have already had underlines the point about double standards raised by Ian Murray.
