UK Labour's trade union backers support second referendum on Brexit deal Party leader Jeremy Corbyn leaves his home in LondonMore

Britain's opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn speaks during a rally against U.S. President Donald Trump, in London, Britain, June 4, 2019.

In a letter to party members, he added Labour would campaign in favour of remain to stop a no-deal Brexit or what he called a "damaging Tory (Conservative Party) Brexit".

"In those circumstances, I want to make it clear that Labour would campaign for Remain against either no deal or a Tory (Conservative) deal that does not protect the economy and jobs".

The Labour leader has been under intense pressure to shift to an overtly anti-Brexit stance, but has insisted on consulting the party's stakeholders in recent weeks, including the trades unions.

"If Labour fails to lead at this crucial moment, or falls back into silence on Brexit, then the anger now felt about the plans to exclude the people from deciding on our future will turn too on our party - and the dismay which fed the disastrous European Parliamentary election results will sink roots that will strangle any hope of winning of the next General Election".

In November 2018, shadow chancellor John McDonnell said Labour would "inevitably" back a second referendum if it was unable to secure a general election, and at the beginning of this year, 71 Labour MPs said they supported a public vote. Labour's current manifesto commits them to negotiating their own Brexit deal.

Leaders agreed to support a public vote on any deal agreed by a Tory prime minister. And anyone prioritising a Tory-managed second referendum over a general election is either misguided or suspect. Labour is a remain party.

- Ann Widdecombe, one of the new Brexit MEPs elected to the European Parliament, joined her colleagues in turning their backs on the Parliament when the EU anthem was being sung.

"The @LibDems are the only party that can get into govt which is 100% committed to stopping Brexit".

"We saw what a lack of clarity did to Labour in the European elections". We continue to believe this is a sensible alternative that could bring the country together. "I am surprised that it's even a suggestion from the Labour Party to have it on the ballot".

Labour MP and chairman of the Brexit Select Committee Hilary Benn hailed the "very significant" announcement, which he said will be "widely welcomed" within the party.

Neither Hunt nor Johnson supports the idea of a second referendum.
