Rebel Labour MP calls on party to make 'game-changing' Brexit move

Rebel Labour MP calls on party to make 'game-changing' Brexit move

And Green Party co-leader Caroline Lucas said: "We urge the Labour leadership to join us in backing this crucial amendment - and show that they too are willing to put the national interest first".

Jeremy Corbyn has refused to rule out backing a second referendum on European Union membership.

Jeremy Corbyn has rejected Nicola Sturgeon's plea to support the United Kingdom staying in the European Union single market ahead of her government publishing an analysis arguing that membership would mean the "least damaging" Brexit.

Mr Corbyn also said today that there would "have to be a customs union with the EU obviously" but again insisted that Britain can not be a part of the EU's Single Market without being a member of the EU.

He added: "We've had a Referendum and we lost and you won, I accept that" but he said the public was becoming more anxious about the issue. So I don't quite understand why she [Nicola Sturgeon] would keep saying join the Single Market, when leaving the European Union means you leave the Single Market. I understand the views of Labour supporters.

"Noway, Lichtenstein and Iceland fully participate in the single market but they are not members of the EU".

"But, at the moment, and as things now stand, we proceed in good faith, we do as we are instructed and we are leaving the European Union".

"At the moment... We proceed in good faith".

One challenged him and said "let us leave".

There is a ground swell for a second vote with even former UKIP leader Nigel Farage suggesting a new poll might be needed before Brexit is delivered.

A ComRes poll for the Daily Mirror suggested public opinion on Brexit has shifted and if a second vote was held 55% would vote to remain in the European Union and 45% to leave. However the survey said only 18% of Tory voters want a second poll and 79% were against.

Some MPs were left frustrated at the party's parliamentary meeting earlier this week after Corbyn reportedly ruled out adopting a Brexit policy based on staying in the single market and customs union.

The comments came after Labour MP Wes Streeting said the party was now the "single biggest barrier" to Britain remaining in the single market.

The Labour leader insisted that continuing the trade arrangement was dependent on being in the EU.

Lib Dem, SNP, Plaid Cymru and Green Party leaders are tabling the amendment.

If the Labour party announced tomorrow that we would keep Britain in the single market and customs union, it would be a game-changing moment in British politics.
