Jon Snow last night suggested that a second referendum could take place because many who voted have died and young people newly on the electoral roll want to remain.

The Channel 4 News host was interviewing Labour MPs Stephen Kinnock and Alison McGovern. 

He said: ‘It is a tasteless question but the truth is there are quite a lot of people who have died since the last referendum … a good number of young people who are on the register now want to stay.’

Mrs McGovern, MP for Wirral South, said: ‘It is a tasteless question, if you don’t mind me agreeing. What matters to people is what they know about Brexit now, not what they knew in 2017.’ 

Mr Snow also raised concerns about the margins by which leave won the referendum.

He said: ‘You’re actually all hung by the same problem which is that the referendum was far too close for comfort. 

‘Most countries that have referendum have much bigger margins that they have to surpass before there is a decision.’

In the interview, Mr Snow also raised concerns about the margins by which leave won the referendum
