Brexit: 71 UK opposition Labour party lawmakers back second referendum – media
The MPs claim that more Labour MPs will come in support of a ‘people's vote’ if the no-confidence vote in the government tabled by the Labour leader fails on Wednesday evening.
“We now face a moment of national crisis, where the facts and the views of many people have changed – and are continuing to change,” the MPs wrote.
“It is now clear renegotiation is not a realistic prospect."
One of the signatories to the letter is David Lammy, MP for Tottenham, who told the BBC earlier on Wednesday that Corbyn could “take ownership of the single worst policy decision in peacetime” or “be courageous, tell the truth to the British people.”
Labour's official Brexit policy keeps the option of a second referendum on the table if the party cannot secure a general election. However, it looks as though some MPs are becoming impatient and want Corbyn to commit to a people's vote immediately.Also on rt.com Corbyn tables no confidence vote in May's Tory govt
