Theresa May's argument against a People's Vote was succinctly destroyed on BBC News in just 40 seconds.
The counterargument was made by prominent anti-Brexit campaigner Dr Mike Galsworthy.
He was interviewed by the BBC's Chi Chi Izundu during the People's Vote march in London about the potential for having a final say on Brexit.
Izundu said: 'Prime minister Theresa May has said there will is no possibility of a People's Vote...'
In just 40 seconds Galsworthy, a campaigner from the Scientists4EU and NHS against Brexit movement, perfectly refuted why the prime minister was wrong.
