|Justine Greening has called for a second referendum, labeling the prime minister's Brexit deal a "fudge".
Theresa May's proposals as "the worst of both worlds".
The final decision should be given to the people of "deadlocked politicians" hands, Ms Greening said.
There are three options: the PM's deal, staying in the EU or a clean break from Europe with no deal.
Ms Greening, who resigned after the cabinet reshuffle in January, said the referendum should offer a first and second preference vote so that a consensus can be reached.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today program, Ms Greening said the government's proposals were a "clever attempt to compromise that could work" goal "suits no-one".
The MP for Putney said: "The reality is Parliament is on the table, but it will be MPs who vote it down." But Britain needs to find a road forward.

Seven thoughts on a second EU referendum
Ms Greening, who is supported in the EU referendum, is the highest profile ex-Cabinet minister to call for a second referendum.
She said there were other senior citizens who agreed with her stance, adding that people who would not feel the same way.
In her article in the Times, she lambasted the PM's Brexit blueprint, saying: "We'll be dragging our remnants voters out of the EU for a deal that's still complying with many EU rules, but now with no say on shaping them.
"It's not what they want, and they're unhappy, they ask, 'What's the point?'
"For Leavers, this deal simply does not deliver the proper break from the European Union that they want."
