Labour prepared to back second Brexit referendum

Andrew Adonis, a Labour member of the House of Lords who supports holding a second referendum, said Labour can't sit on the sidelines while the country staggers toward political and financial chaos.

T-shirts promoting a pro-Corbyn, anti-Brexit stance is seen on sale outside the Labour Party Conference in Liverpool, north west England on September 23, 2018, the official opening day of the annual Labour Party Conference.

Mr Watson said: "We decide our manifesto in the first few days of a general election, there are a lot of things you need to factor in, the prevailing economic climate, the whole packages in there".

"I will die fighting racism in any form", Corbyn said when asked directly by the BBC whether he was an anti-Semite.

"Obviously I'm bound by the democracy of our party".

Deputy leader Tom Watson was even firmer.

He stressed it was not yet party policy to have a second vote, saying: "That is not the view Jeremy and I take, what we have said and still want the conference to support is that there is a meaningful vote in Parliament on the Brexit deal and if we can't get a meaningful vote then there should be a general election".

British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Speaking to Sky News" Sophy Ridge at the Liverpool conference, Mr Watson said that it would be "inconceivable' for the Labour leadership to go against the wishes of its party members if they voted for Labour to formally back a second referendum over Brexit.

"I think we can reach an agreement where there is a freedom of trade across the Irish border and across the Irish Sea".

When pressed on his views on Israel, Corbyn added: "It's right that people should be able to discuss the establishment of the state of Israel but recognize the existence of the state of Israel, and not prevent that type of debate". "We want to negotiate a Labour Brexit".

Mr Corbyn said there would be a vote on the issue at conference, but added he was not sure exactly what question will be put to delegates.

And in doing so, the friction between the political and industrial wings of this new-look Labour is likely to increase.

Labour's conference starts today as a YouGov poll revealed 86% of members want a second referendum on the United Kingdom leaving the EU.

"There is a lot of resentment, a lot of bitterness which I don't think will be very easily dispelled and there may be some Labour MPs who eventually leave on the basis of anti-Semitism issues", Fielding said.

Britain is to exit the European Union in March.

"This is as big a crisis as I can remember in my lifetime", Adonis said. We are not happy with it and we would vote against it. "By ensuring businesses reserve a third of board seats for workers, we'll help transform our broken economic model", said Corbyn, who has shifted Labour towards the hard left since being elected party chief in 2015.

"Jeremy Corbyn is a Brexiteer and always has been", said Chilton of Labour Leave.

"We want to see a deal".
