Labor Party chief Jeremy Corbyn said the British people must have a say on Brexit for a second time, and a new vote would help to avoid a “disastrous” no-deal exit, which PM Boris Johnson is pushing.
Corbyn said he wants to give “people that credible option” next June if the Labor Party gains power.
I want us to come together to put the Brexit issue finally to the British people to decide between ‘leave with a good deal’ or ‘remain and reform the European Union’.
Corbyn made the comments on Saturday, assuming that a snap parliamentary election may be called for November or December. Talk of having an early vote intensified earlier this month after Prime Minister Boris Johnson proposed it as a measure to break the gridlock over Brexit negotiations. However, the move has so far been rejected by Parliament.
