UK Labour opposition re-ignites idea of second Brexit referendum

Her delegation plans to vote in favour of a conference motion on Tuesday supporting "all options remaining on the table", including the possibility of a second referendum on Brexit.

Some Labour MPs represent districts in Britain that voted decisively to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum, and fear losing their seats if there is a general election.

Starmer said May was on course to fail these tests.

Overall, the government has published more than 65 such notices giving a glimpse of what a no-deal Brexit - the nightmare scenario for chief executives of most multinationals operating in Britain - would look like.

"It's decision time and we need to nail our colours to the mast", Emily Wallace, chair of the Vauxhall Labour party, told AFP on the side-lines of the party conference in Liverpool.

Starmer said if the British Parliament rejected the deal, there should be a new election on Brexit.

Ms Long-Bailey claimed the party was keeping "all options on the table" - but refused to clarify whether that would include the option to Remain.

Britons voted by a 52-48 percent margin in a 2016 referendum to leave the EU. We will challenge this Government.

She said of the EU: "If they have concerns they need to detail those concerns, and if they have counter-proposals let's hear the counter-proposals and then we can discuss those and take them forward".

Britain will have one of the world's most business-friendly economies after Brexit, she said.

"That does not sound like a solution to anything". We will decide as a party when the referendum comes what our position will be. "And will they want to have a third one in another two years?" asked a senior European Union diplomat in Brussels.

"That's not in the national interest".

"That is not in the national interest, what we are doing is in the national interest".

At the weekend Downing Street dismissed a newspaper report of contingency planning for a general election, and Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said the idea was "for the birds".

In the sparky interview, she insisted Jeremy Corbyn would handle negotiations with the European Union better than Theresa May because he is more "amiable".

The general secretary of the Labour Leave group, Brendan Chilton, described Sir Keir's comments as "a betrayal of the very highest order" which would cost Labour seats in the Midlands and Wales. Many in the Labour Party have warned that a second referendum would alienate the 35 percent of party voters who cast ballots for the Leave campaign.

An EU summit next month is seen as a make-or-break moment for a Brexit deal.

Readers can choose from four potential outcomes; May's Chequers plan, an alternative solution, no-deal or a second referendum.

But Starmer was clear: the motion could allow Britain to vote to stay in the EU.

But Cameron Bradbury hit back and said: "I would like to tell Tosh McDonald that I set my alarm clock an hour early everyday so I can love #MargaretThatcher for an hour longer". "It's about stopping a destructive Tory Brexit".
