Corbyn would take a ‘neutral stance’ in second referendum

In a key moment, Jeremy Corbyn has revealed he would take a neutral stance in a second referendum between a new Brexit Deal and a Remain option if he was made PM.

The statement was the first explicit response on what Mr Corbyn’s Brexit stance would be in a second referendum.

Speaking during a Question Time Special on Friday, Mr Corbyn said;

“I will adopt, if I am Prime Minister at the time, a neutral stance so I can credibly carry out the result of that to bring our communities and country together rather continuing endless debate about the EU and Brexit.”

The Labour Party is pledging to give the public a final say on Brexit if it wins the general election on December 12. The party says it will renegotiate a new Brexit deal with the EU and then would put this, and the option of remaining in the EU, back to the people in a legally binding referendum.
