Corbyn would back members on second referendum

UK's Labour party ponders supporting new Brexit referendum

"The time has gone for sitting on the fence", said Mike Buckley of campaign group Labour for a People's Vote. "We will vote down a blind Brexit". The row came ahead of a major debate today at which Labour activists will urge Jeremy Corbyn to embrace the idea of a so-called "people's vote" on the final deal.

At a rally at the World Transformed Festival, Mr Corbyn said the "poorest and most vulnerable" had been forced to pay the price for the 2008 financial crash.

Brexit has so far largely dominated this year's party conference, a meeting of Labour members who are increasingly confident that Corbyn will soon be leading a government.

Labour's conference will vote later on Tuesday on keeping a second Brexit referendum as an option if May fails to get her Brexit plan through parliament, heaping pressure on a struggling prime minister.

"All the polling that we have seen is that the country is still pretty split down the middle".

A YouGov survey of more than 1,000 Labour members for "The Observer" found 86pc support a referendum on the outcome of Brexit talks, against just 8pc who oppose it.

"The leadership knows where the members are and they know where their voters are", the spokesman said.

'In that case it will be about whether you accept the deal or not or whether you send people back to negotiate a proper deal'.

The Daily Express runs with the headline: "Outcry at Labour's betrayal of Brexit", and says the Labour leader faced a "furious backlash" after confirming he was ready to join calls for a re-run of the 2016 poll if delegates back the demand in a vote at the party's conference.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said over the weekend that he would shift his weight behind a decision to stage another Brexit referendum, should his party demonstrate clear support for the move.

"We need to be very wary of being labelled as a middle-class pro-Remain or pro-EU party", Barker shouted at hundreds of Labour supporters amassed on Liverpool's pier head on Saturday evening to see Corbyn take the stage.

But Mr Kinnock said that if another referendum were to be held, it would be "absurd" for it not to contain the option of remaining in the EU.

"If the government is confident in negotiating a deal that working people, our economy and communities will benefit from, they should not be afraid to put that deal to the public".

'And if the Prime Minister thinks we'll wave through a vague deal asking us to jump blindfolded into the unknown she can think again. Most of the party's half a million members voted in 2016 to remain in the European Union, but many of its 257 lawmakers represent areas of the country that wanted to leave. We will vote down a blind Brexit'.
