Corbyn: I will be bound by party decision on second referendum

Supporters cheer during Jeremy Corbyn’s speech in Liverpool on Saturday

The crunch meeting comes as the opposition Labour Party faces a week of discord over its European Union policy pitting leaders gambling May will fall against members who want a re-run of the 2016 Brexit referendum.

'What comes out of conference I will adhere to.

In a statement on Sunday, the prime minister said "many in Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the SNP are trying to thwart Brexit at every step and seeking to exploit this moment for political gain" by calling for another referendum and extending Article 50 to delay Brexit.

"We believe general election is the best solution because people can then have a wide-ranging debate and also then choose the team that would then do the negotiations".

He added: 'But I was elected to empower the members of the party.

He said: "I don't think there's many Tory MPs 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".

"For Labour to adopt a second referendum policy would spell political disaster in all those Labour seats that voted leave", said Brendan Chilton of the pro-Brexit group Labour Leave.

But the exact wording of the motion to be put to a vote at the party's conference on Tuesday states only that "if we can not get a general election, Labour must support all options remaining on the table, including campaigning for a public vote".

All other changes which emerged from a party review of rules, including new powers for Scottish and Welsh conferences to determine how NEC representatives from the Scottish and Welsh parties are chosen and the creation of a disability place on the committee, were approved by at least 90% of those who voted.

Britain's opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn gestures as he arrives with Labour Party's Executive Director of Strategy and Communications Seamas Milne (R) to give an interview to the BBC at the Museum of Liverpool on September 23, 2018, the official opening day of the annual Labour Party Conference.

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

The support of the main opposition party would be a major boost to campaigners for a second vote on Brexit.

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

"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".

The leader of Unite said any second vote on Brexit should not be asking if the public want to stay in the EU.

Manuel Cortes, general secretary of the TSSA union, told the crowd he supported Mr Corbyn and said: "If there is one thing I know about Jeremy Corbyn, it's that he respects democracy".

In his conference speech, Mr McCluskey said: "If the centre ground is fighting for a better deal for working people and protecting our communities, look no further".

Mr Corbyn told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "Let's see what comes out of conference".

Corbyn wanted his conference to be an opportunity to sell his alternative vision for Britain's economy, pressing his argument for the renationalization of rail, mail and utilities, and to rally the party for a possible early election.
