Labour rule out cross-party Brexit modification

Pidcock ‘the new chosen one

The Labour leader told ITV's Peston On Sunday: "We are not supporting or calling for a second referendum".

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

Appearing on ITV's Peston on Sunday, Corbyn also rejected calls to join a cross-party bid to lobby the Government to ensure the United Kingdom remains in the single market post-Brexit.

But less than half an hour later Mr Corbyn rejected her demand, saying he did not "understand" why she was focusing on the single market when Brexit meant leaving it.

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.

Labour MP Chuka Umunna told Sky News shortly after Corbyn's comment: "In terms of the notion you have to be in the European Union to be part of the single market, that is not correct".

Emily Thornberry, the shadow foreign secretary, suggested on BBC's Andrew Marr Show that Labour could end up supporting a second vote if it became clear a substantial proportion of the public backed remaining in the EU.

Labour's formal position is that Britain's interests would be best served by retaining membership of the single market and customs union during the transition period that will begin in 2019.

"But at the moment, and as things now stand, we proceed in good faith, we do as we are instructed". She suffered a major voter backlash past year against her demand for a second independence referendum.

One challenged him and said "let us leave".

Labour's Brexit policy is now the single biggest barrier, to Britain remaining in the European Union single market, the Ilford North MP Wes Streeting will claim on Saturday.

"With Labour, there would be a majority in the Commons for single market membership, but not without us".

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.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon insisted that staying in the Market and Customs Union would be the "least damaging" option post-Brexit - and called on the Labour leader to get behind it.

Deputy Tory Party Chairman James Cleverly said today: "Every step of the way Labour are trying to frustrate the Brexit process rather than make a success of it".

The SNP, Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and the Greens will collectively back an amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill this week.
