The former Conservative MP told Al Jazeera she was determined to campaign for a so-called People’s Vote with the option to Remain in the EU on the ballot paper claiming that “with a good campaign” her newly formed party, Change UK, could “win it”. Speaking after a party rally in London, she said: “Increasingly people in the United Kingdom are looking at Brexit  with horror.

“I know lots of people who are absolutely fed up with it.

“They want an end to the mess and the only way through that is to have that People’s Vote with Remain on the ballot paper.

“And with a good campaign, we will win it.”

The Remain party rally received the staunch criticism of Leave voters who took it to Twitter to express themselves against the anti-Brexit campaigners. 

The arch-Remainer and her fellow party members were branded “deluded” as many Leave supporters argue the party would get “obliterated” at the upcoming EU elections against Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party.

One Twitter user wrote: “SHE, THEY, are totally Deluded. Their Time in Parliament is coming to an End. Such a Shame for these Fine Upstanding MPs.”

And another: “I’m astonished that the establishment still do not comprehend how the general public feel. They are so out of touch it’s unreal.

“They are going to get obliterated at the European Elections.”

Others have claimed the newly formed party was “moribund” as the project it seeks to protect.

Mrs Soubry has maintained the argument that the British people should have the “final say” on Brexit and has endorsed the idea of a second referendum with the option to Remain in the EU.

The Change UK MP has previously claimed Leave voters in the UK have now changed their mind as older generations were convinced by their children and grandchildren remaining in the Brussels bloc would be more beneficial for the country.

The strong anti-Brexit position led the Remainer to leave the Conservative Party to join former Labour MP Chuka Umunna and six other MP to form what was originally called the Independent Group. 

The former Conservative then faced heavy criticism for her failure to hold a by-election after defecting from the Tory party.
