Labour will back public vote to 'prevent a damaging Tory Brexit'

Labour will back public vote to 'prevent a damaging Tory Brexit'

Labour's decision could damage her hopes of winning support for a revised deal in a vote she has promised by March 12, by attracting those who would have backed her agreement in order to avoid a no-deal exit but who would prefer a second referendum.

By contrast, Labour continues to object to her deal as it fails to provide a permanent customs union - but the backstop is essentially such a move and a customs union would, if the United Kingdom desired it, emerge in the second round of negotiations.

The announcement comes after UK Prime Minister Theresa May again delayed a vote on the Withdrawal Agreement at the British Parliament earlier this week, announcing that a "meaningful vote" on the Brexit deal would be held on March 12.

The British Parliament had rejected the earlier version of the Brexit deal, previously agreed upon by May and the European Union due to the issue of the Irish backstop.

This amendment, proposed by the Scottish National Party, says a no-deal Brexit should be ruled out under any circumstances, regardless of exit date.

"We're in a very volatile situation".

So there we are: two significant policy shifts in two days, neither of which are certain to budge the political dial whatsoever. "It's hard to say at any one point what feelings are going to be two or three weeks down the line", a Labour spokesman told reporters.

Promising to be "more considered in my remarks" in future, Mr Williamson said: "I deeply regret, and apologise for, my recent choice of words when speaking about how the Labour Party has responded to the ongoing fight against anti-Semitism inside of our party".

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday that the European Union would agree to extend the Brexit deadline beyond March 29 only if Britain justified such a request with a clear objective.

"One way or another, we will do everything in our power to prevent no deal".

But she made the dramatic reversal this week amid threats of mass resignations from her own ministers, who fear Britain crashing out of the European Union without a deal on March 29. Several MPs have either defected or outlined their intent to resign from May's Conservative Party if the new deal does not match up to the Parliament's expectations.

An absurd proposition, Labour only suspended the outspoken backbencher many hours after both Tom Watson - Mr Corbyn's deputy - and also Mrs May denounced Mr Williamson's comments which had been first revealed by The Yorkshire Post.

"There's no turning back for Jeremy now", Kyle said.

The row was reignited by video footage showing him telling a meeting of the grassroots Momentum group that Labour's reaction to anti-Semitism allegations had been "too apologetic" and had led to the party being "demonised".

"I still have deep reservations about the idea of having another referendum".

"I believe that any money I put in to the Independent Group will be money well spent because I think Theresa May is destroying the economy", he said.

A prominent ally of British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he will work to clear his name after being suspended from the party for suggesting Labour had "given too much ground" in its response to complaints of anti-Semitism.

"A second referendum was only ever possible with the votes of Labour Members of Parliament and we are now on the verge of making this happen", founder Andrew Lewin said in a statement.

May's Conservative Party lambasted the Labour move, saying it wants "to betray the will of the British people & ignore the biggest democratic vote in our nation's history".
