Brexit might never happen, senior Liberal Democrat MP Sir Vince Cable has suggested.

Mr Cable, who is currently the only candidate to be his party’s next leader, said a second referendum could see the initial Leave vote overturned.

“I’m beginning to think that Brexit may never happen,” he told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show. “The problems are so enormous, the divisions within the two major parties are so enormous, I can see a scenario in which this doesn’t happen.

“Our policy of having a second referendum, which didn’t really cut through in the general election, is designed to give a way out when it becomes clear that Brexit is potentially disastrous.”
