Labour Has (Eventually) Ruled Out A Second Referendum On Brexit

Labour Has (Eventually) Ruled Out A Second Referendum On Brexit

The Labour party has been riven by divisions over its leader Jeremy Corbyn and Brexit, while May's commitment to a clean break with the European Union has undermined support for the eurosceptic UK Independence Party.

An analysis of the 2015 General Election results by The Telegraph has shown that around 58 seats in Labour's North and Midlands heartlands are under threat due to the Brexit effect in the upcoming snap election on June 8.

"At this election, people are going to have a very clear choice", she said.

But under the timetable for the proposed general election, Parliament will be dissolved on May 3 which means there would be no House of Commons for the new MP to be elected to.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Theresa May announced holding a snap election on June 8, claiming that divisions at Westminster risked hampering the Brexit negotiations.

He will say: "Much of the media and establishment are saying this election is a foregone conclusion", as the latest YouGov poll on Westminster voting intentions puts his party 21 points behind the Conservatives.

Quite simply this - with Jeremy Corbyn in charge, the Labour Party has returned to the values of the people who created it to look after the rights of the majority of us.

Britain is now gearing up for its third general election in seven years, which comes less than a year after the divisive referendum that decided the United Kingdom would withdraw from the EU.

Opposition parties had said they would not block the move and have already begun soliciting support from the public, kicking of a swift seven weeks of campaigning.

Jeremy Corbyn has ruled out backing a second referendum on the final Brexit deal after suggestions Labour could include the policy in their general election manifesto.

Andrew Gwynne, the party's campaigns and elections chairman, said: "The Tories don't stand for working people, their record is one of failure and broken promises, letting ordinary people down at every turn". MPs voted by 522 votes to 13 - with Labour and Lib Dem helping secure the two-thirds majority needed to bring forward the election from 2020. As a supporter of Labour for the past 60 years and also a Brexit voter, I fully support her decision and reason for taking this course of action. This election is a chance for them to change direction of the country. May is not only keen to win her own mandate but also to be less at the mercy of her party's anti-EU right-wing when it comes to parliamentary votes.
