Corbyn says he would support second Brexit referendum

"I hope we will agree that the best way of resolving this is a general election", he told the Sunday Mirror.

A Labour MP believes the chances of a general election are 50-50, as the party prepare to back a second referendum on leaving the European Union.

The YouGov survey of 1,054 Labour members found even in the North and Midlands, where many Labour constituencies voted Leave, there was overwhelming support for a second referendum.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has long opposed that idea, and a showdown on the issue looms at the party's annual conference, which starts Sunday in the port city of Liverpool.

The support of the main opposition party would be a major boost to campaigners for a second vote on Brexit. "So if conference makes a decision I will not walk away from it and I will act accordingly".

In his interview with the Observer, Mr Watson said: "Jeremy and I were elected in 2015 to give the Labour party back to its members".

Jason Miller Steps Away from Role at CNN
CNN contributor Jason Miller announced Saturday that he is departing the news network amid a child custody dispute with A.J. In that story, she said that Miller claimed to have been separated from his wife then their affair began.

To drive home the message, several thousand People's Vote supporters marched through Liverpool on Sunday, waving blue-and-yellow EU flags alongside Union Jacks and holding signs reading "Bin Brexit", "Exit from Brexit" - and a few ruder slogans.

His intervention was a key moment in the drive to break the far-left Militant group's hold over parts of the party, which ended with the expulsion of figures including Liverpool council's deputy leader Derek Hatton.

It is not clear where Theresa May goes next, after the drubbing her Chequers proposals received at the European Union summit in Salzburg, but when she says it is a choice between her deal (bravely assuming it is not already a dead parrot) and no deal, Labour would beg to differ. "Labour Party conference decides it wants a manifesto pledge on a people's vote, that we would defy that decision", he told Sky News.

"I'm desperately trying to avoid any rise of xenophobia that happened last time around, I'm desperately trying to avoid giving any opportunity to Ukip or the far right. That's why I think we now need to take a stand - we the Labour Party and we the country".

Former foreign secretary David Miliband said it was an "absolute dereliction of duty" for Labour not to say that the deal obtained by the Prime Minister must be put to the people.

"Of course we're a democratic party, but before we get that we want a general election, because this government has made a complete fist of Brexit, they haven't been able to negotiate a deal", he said.
