Corbyn Hints at Second Referendum

 1 min read / 

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the UK Labour Party, has declined to rule out another Brexit vote.

Speaking at the European Socialist Party conference in Lisbon, Corbyn backtracked on his previous stances towards the EU yet again. A longtime Eurosceptic who for decades campaigned alongside famed Labour figure Tony Benn, Corbyn effectively refused to firmly back either Remain or Leave in the 2016 Brexit referendum. More recently, the Labour Party has moved towards backing the decision to leave – in order to comply with the cross-party slogan of “respecting the will of the people”. During the June election, there was virtually no substantive difference between the Tory and Labour stance towards Brexit but in the months since, but Corbyn is increasingly diverging from the government’s stance.
