The Lib Dem leader vowed to campaign at the next general election to revoke article 50 and ignore the result of the referendum, telling the Good Morning Britain host: ‘Democracy did not end on 23 June 2016.’
Party members voted yesterday at the Lib Dem conference in Brighton to campaign to stop Brexit entirely if there is election.
But the party will seek a second referendum until that happens, with MPs currently blocking the Prime Minister’s attempts to go to the country.
Ms Swinson told GMB: ‘The government has gone away taken the result of that referendum and negotiated what that will mean for the British public.
‘What is on offer today is not what people were promised.’
Her position prompted Mr Morgan to ask: ‘Why should I accept your win?’

She continued: ‘Just to be crystal clear about this, our position in that election, when we go to the country and campaign… we will be saying if you elect a Liberal Democrat majority government, we will revoke Article 50.
‘If the people of this country then choose to elect a majority Liberal Democratic government, then we will do exactly as we’ve said during that election campaign and revoke Article 50. That’s the way democracy works.’
The motion passed overwhelmingly at the conference says a Liberal Democrat majority government would be ‘recognised as an unequivocal mandate to revoke Article 50 and for the UK to stay in the EU’.
The Lib Dems have experienced a surge under Ms Swinson, leaping upwards in the polls and securing a raft of defections from the Tories and former Labour MPs.
But the chances of them forming the next Government alone are slim.

Ms Swinson today also refused to deny that she would campaign to rejoin the European Union if Brexit happened.
In a second interview today, with the BBC, she said: ‘I absolutely am determined that we keep our place in the EU.
‘And I have not given up. I still believe we can stop Brexit.’
