Labour deputy leader calls for second referendum before general election

Labour deputy leader calls for second referendum before general election

For Labour, deputy leader Tom Watson is expected to say a single-issue Brexit election may not break the deadlock in Parliament - something only a second referendum can achieve with certainty. "If we stand from them, they simply can not acquire a bulk".

While parliament has so far blocked two of Johnson's requests for an election, Farage mentioned it was crystal clear that there would be an election quickly and that traditional get together loyalties to Conservative and Labour had altered because of to Brexit.

A ComRes poll recently conducted for the Daily Telegraph gave the Conservatives the support of 30% of respondents, with Labour on 29%, the Liberal Democrats on 17% and the Brexit Party on 13%.

He said he would consider a pact with Mr Johnson's Conservatives ahead of a possible general election if Mr Johnson agreed to press for a "clean break" Brexit. In return, he would let pro-Brexit Conservatives run unopposed, boosting their chances of being elected.

Labour must prioritise reversing Brexit through another referendum, over winning power in a general election, its deputy leader Tom Watson is to say.

The deputy leader of the opposition Labour Party Tom Watson said earlier on Wednesday that he wanted there to be a new referendum on European Union membership before national elections are held. "We're ready to unleash the biggest people-powered campaign we've ever seen".

He also accused the PM of cosying up to US President Donald Trump to get a "one-sided" trade deal with the US which would damage employment rights, the NHS and United Kingdom industry.

Mr Watson is effectively saying that an election should not be staged until well into 2020.

In the event of another general election in the coming months, Mr Watson says Labour must be "crystal clear" about where it stands on Brexit if it wants to get a hearing for the rest of its domestic policy agenda. "And in that election we will commit to a public vote with a credible option to leave (the EU) and the option to remain".

The Prime Minister himself furthermore brushed aside ideas that a deal could be carried out between the 2 men with a spokesperson having mentioned: 'The PM could no longer be doing a take care of Nigel Farage'.

Johnson's Conservative Party argues that Labour wants to ignore the outcome of the 2016 referendum and the public's view that Brexit should be delivered.

Mr Grieve's motion asked for all correspondence and communications, formal or informal, including WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, Facebook Messenger, private email accounts, text messages, iMessage and official and personal mobile phones connected to the present Government since July 23 relating to prorogation. 'That's why Parliament is in recess now because you always have a recess before a Queen's Speech.

It lists key individuals of Mr Johnson's Government, including senior adviser Dominic Cummings and director of legislative affairs Nikki da Costa.
