BREXIT SELLOUTS: Labour Push For Vote on Second Referendum

LABOUR will defy its working-class Brexit voters and will push for a second referendum in the commons in the coming days. 

Labour’s shadow Brexit secretary Kier Starmer told the that “We need an amendment to say that whatever deal gets through, it should be subject to a referendum.” 

“We have already voted, I think, three times as a party for a second referendum with a three-line whip behind it.”

“The position we have adopted is whatever the outcome, whether it’s Boris Johnson’s bad deal or a better one which could be secured, it has got to go to a referendum up against remain.”

Asked if Labour could back the Government’s deal if it came with the pledge of a new referendum, Sir Keir said: “Well, we’ll see what that looks like.

“What we are trying to achieve is that this deal in particular, but any deal, is put up against Remain in a referendum.

“And we will have to see tactically how we get there.”

Sir Keir said Labour would also push for a customs union.

He said: “We have been arguing for a very long time now for a customs union with the EU and for single market alignment.”
