UK LABOUR 2nd Referendum a way to unite the country


The two main UK parties where punished by voters in the European elections, which saw both the BREXIT and LibDem parties surge at the expense of Labour and the governing Conservatives, Labour said a public vote was the way to reunite the country, but said this could also be a national election.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has so far said the option of a second referendum should be kept on the table, is under pressure to endorse one without qualification. The prospect poses a dilemma as many of the party’s supporters backed Brexit.

Veteran socialist Corbyn has shifted Labour, which under Blair won three elections by moving to the centre, firmly to the left since he became leader in 2015.
