UK opposition leader will back second Brexit vote if party wants it

Patty Aguilar | 23 September, 2018, 22:08

After weeks of both European Union and British officials making positive noises about the prospects of clinching a divorce deal and one on a future trading relationship, the mood turned sour on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria when European Union leaders came out, one by one, to criticise "Chequers" as unrealistic.

Furious LBC presenter Mr Dale also said Mr Corbyn's shift in supporting calls for a final say on Mrs May's Brexit deal would "almost guarantee they lose the next election".

British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Sunday he would back a second Brexit referendum if his Labour Party votes to pursue the move, heaping pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May, whose plans for a divorce deal with the European Union have hit an impasse.

"I don't think there's many Tory MPs who want a Labour government, but there's many Tory MPs that are very, very angry at the way their Government is performing and might feel it is the right time for the country to make a decision on the future".

Corbyn has been under increasing pressure from supporters to back calls for a second referendum, and has until now been reluctant to do so.

When asked whether he would personally back a second referendum, Mr Gwynne said: "We are not in control of the Brexit process, if it looks like we have no-deal then the meaningful vote that we secured for parliament is the first stage".

To drive home the message, several thousand People's Vote supporters marched through Liverpool on Sunday, waving blue-and-yellow EU flags alongside Union Jacks and holding signs reading "Bin Brexit", "Exit from Brexit" - and a few ruder slogans.

Even in the North and Midlands, where many Labour constituencies voted Leave in 2016, there was overwhelming support - 86% and 88% respectively - for a second vote.

The YouGov survey of 1,054 Labour members found 86% supported a referendum on the outcome of Brexit negotiations, against 8% who oppose it.

Beto O’Rourke makes apparent Clash reference during Cruz debate
The state "needs a senator who will work with the president where we can and stand up to him where we must", O'Rourke said. Of course, ridiculing O'Rourke for his name is a bold move for a man christened Rafael and makes Cruz seem a touch mean.

Britain's main opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn gives a thumbs up gesture as he arrives for an interview by BBC TV journalist Andrew Marr, in Liverpool, England, Sunday Sept. 23, 2018.

"So if the people's party decide they want the people to have a final say on the deal, we have to respect the view of our members and we will go out and argue for it".

Some 81% believe their standard of living would get worse after Brexit and 89% said it would be bad for jobs.

"In the referendum, I wanted to remain and reform the European Union".

Len McCluskey, leader of the Unite trade union, a powerful Labour ally, said British voters had made a decision to leave the EU and "for us now to enter some kind of campaign that opens up that issue again I think would be wrong".

As speculation mounts that Labour is preparing to table a vote of no confidence in Theresa May, Corbyn has said his party is "ready to put our case to parliament".

Former foreign secretary David Miliband said it was an "absolute dereliction of duty" for Labour not to say that the deal obtained by the Prime Minister must be put to the people.

Addressing claims of his backing for a second referendum, Mr Corbyn told The Mirror: "What comes out of conference I will adhere to".
