UK's Labour Party ponders supporting new Brexit referendum

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accepted he would be "bound" by the outcome of Tuesday's conference motion.

With the United Kingdom and the European Union at an impasse in divorce talks, many Labour members think the left-of-center party has the power and a duty to force a new referendum that could reverse Britain's decision to leave the 28-nation bloc.

A Labour source involved in the composite negotiations said: "If a general election can not be secured, the motions keeps all options on the table but rules out all options other than a People's Vote".

Mr Corbyn confirmed there will be a vote on the party's Brexit stance during the four-day conference.

Large companies would be forced to transfer as much as 10 percent of their shares into a fund to be owned and managed collectively by their workers, under plans to be set out by Britain's opposition Labour Party on Monday. "We must back it if Labour members want it", he told The Observer newspaper. I represent an inner city area in Islington and we were very angry in the 1980s at the way our council expenditure was cut, ' he said.

The Labour party is to consider campaigning for a second Brexit vote if there's no general election.

One of these advisors said during a telephone call: "What are you doing in November - because I think we are going to need an election".

He said: "I don't think there's many Tory MPs want a Labour government, but there's many Tory MPs that are very, very angry at the way their government is performing and might feel it is the right time for the country to make a decision on the future".

Britain is to exit the European Union in March next year after months of talks that have again exposed the deep divides in both the country's main parties - the Conservatives are all but at war with each other and Labour is also at odds over how to leave.

It also did little to please those who campaigned to leave the bloc.

But it remains unclear whether the terms of any motion will enable delegates to commit Labour to a referendum.

Joan Ryan, Gavin Shuker and Chris Leslie have all blamed the hard-left who have flooded into the party after they were hit by the votes.

And it is a party which seems to have a renewed confidence after winning a greater vote share than expected in an election a year ago. "Because while Mr Corbyn remains leader the prospect of a Labour government remains increasingly far away".
