UK's Labour says will back second Brexit referendum

Ian Austin exclusively revealed to the Express & Star why he is leaving Labour

And those still hoping to avert the split were boosted by the Labour Party's conditional decision to back a second Brexit referendum on Monday.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused May of postponing Brexit for "the umpteenth time" as she seeks to run down the clock.

Speaking earlier today in parliament, the Prime Minister said any changes to the divorce agreement with the European Union would have to be put before parliament ahead of any Brexit deal.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the party is committed to "putting forward or supporting an amendment in favour of a public vote to prevent a damaging Tory Brexit being forced on the country".

But the tilt toward another referendum raises problems for Labour, many of whose traditional voters supported leaving the EU.

In her remarks, May offered no support for a second referendum.

Labour's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer added an additional twist to the political chaos in London by saying that even if May's deal was passed by March 12, it should face a public vote.

'I, therefore, welcome tonight's confirmation by the party's leadership. Last week, eight referendum-supporting lawmakers quit the party, in part owing to frustration over his failure to back another vote.

A Tory cabinet minister has warned Prime Minister Theresa May that she and other government colleagues are ready to resign if a "catastrophic" no-deal Brexit is not ruled out.

May wants to change the deal to reassure British lawmakers that the backstop would only apply temporarily. The report also said that a majority of people have no idea they will face new European Union customs and immigration controls after Brexit or that they will require an International Driving Permit to drive in the EU.

It was "impossible to accurately predict the ability of businesses to adapt", but the risk of no deal is "of major concern" for the vehicle industry, both because of tariffs and disruption to just-in-time supply chains.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G coming to Europe in May for €599
Xiaomi doesn't now release its phones in the United States , so it's unlikely you'll be able to buy the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G there. Additionally, Xiaomi launched the Mi LED Smart Bulb at its pre-MWC conference with a price tag of Euro 19.9 (roughly Rs. 1.600).

The Bank of England also forecast in November that a no-deal Brexit in March would cause the United Kingdom economy to shrink by about 8% within a year, the worst drop the country has seen since the 1920s.

"First: we will hold a second meaningful vote by Tuesday the 12th of March at the latest".

The question now is whether May will - either willingly or by force via the new Cooper amendment - replace her "my deal or no deal" ultimatum with a new choice: "my deal or delay Brexit, possibly for many, many months".

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

On Monday, the EU's Tusk warned that the chances of a withdrawal agreement being concluded in time are receding, and that sticking by the planned Brexit date would be too risky.

"We're all looking with increasing frustration at the disarray in the Commons as the time ticks down and I think that ultimately a proposal that allows the people to vote again on the matter is something that we have to absolutely welcome", Mr Howlin said.

So she vowed to press on with the search in Brussels for a compromise to her own Brexit deal.

But the government said it had undertaken "significant action" to prepare for no deal on 29 March.

She said that "any delay is a delay. It doesn't resolve the issue".

The Derby North MP suggested that the singing was likely to have been heard by one of the Labour defectors Joan Ryan, as her parliamentary office is near his.

"I don't see how businesses can plan, I don't see how public services can plan and I think it's just deeply damaging", Cooper told the BBC.
