Brexit: Labour to back Remain as it calls for a new EU referendum


Jeremy Corbyn has challenged the next Tory leader to hold another referendum before taking Britain out of the EU

He however said Labour will campaign to Remain.

Corbyn says the party will take the position to stop “no deal or a damaging Tory Brexit”.

But he did not say what he would do if he won a general election and was placed in charge of the Brexit process.

Some senior members of his team want him to take a pro-Remain stance in all circumstances.

In an interview Corbyn said Labour was now the “party of choice” when it comes to Brexit.

He also said he would make a case to Parliament in September to get another referendum and in the meantime, Labour will “do everything to take no deal off the table.
