Appearing on Channel 4 News, Snow asked about the prospect the General Election presented the opportunity to deliver a U-turn on last year’s EU referendum.
The presenter called on the former Deputy Prime Minister’s party to run a “let’s stick together job” with opposition parties in order to put an end to Brexit, which was backed by 17.4million people.
Snow said: “There will be many people watching this programme who will say ‘can Brexit be reversed?’”
Mr Clegg replied: “I personally think that a vote by the British people can only be countermanded by another vote by the British people.”

Why don’t you do deals with parties that believe in what you believe – staying in Europe
Snow interrupted and blasted: “Why isn’t there a centre party running on a ‘let’s stick together’ job? Are you going to do deals with other parties? Why not?
“Why don’t you do deals with parties that believe in what you believe – staying in Europe.”
The politician appeared to evade the question but insisted he was “unshaken” on his pro-EU stance.
He said: “Of course I believe in that [staying in the EU], my belief is entirely unshaken on that… I think there’s no question of deals.

Theresa May has called for a snap general election
CHANNEL 4 NEWS
Nick Clegg dismissed the idea but maintained his pro-EU stance
“The question was can you reverse a decision taken by the British people.
“I think you can only reverse a decision taken by the British people by another decision taken by the British people – which is one of the many reasons why when Theresa May finally deigns to explain to us exactly what version of Brexit she wants to foist upon us.
“That should be a decision not taken by her, not taken by politicians, but by the British people.”
Also appearing on the programme was Tory MP Michael Gove, who said he trusted the Prime Minister to use a “strengthened hand” following a General Election win to “implement the result of the referendum”.
He said: “I think all the big decisions she has made on Brexit have been absolutely right and I think that she deserves the flexibility and the strengthened hand that a refreshed mandate would give her.”
