Keir Starmer suggests Labour could back Brexit deal if second referendum attached



The shadow Brexit secretary told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show that his party  could vote for Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal if a second referendum was added to the withdrawal agreement bill. His party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has previously said Labour could not vote for Johnson’s deal even with a promise of a second referendum

We already had a "Second referendum", that was in 2016.
First referendum was in 1975.

We’re leaving on 31st October.

The establishment know they are treading thin ice and will get this through so they can go back to ripping off the taxpayer and abandoning the working class.

A general election before Brexit would give the Brexit party 50+ seats and finally break the two party system …. they won’t let it happen

Deal will pass. Brexit will happen on 31st October … appease the masses then business as usual.

Over 3 years….this old Referendum is clearly outdated. I mean not a single person born during this century had a chance to vote. Also no one had an idea what Brexit even means.
I mean 3 years…there are governments that get new elections in a shorter duration.

If the first referendum was a legal contract it would be deemed VOID because those signing it didn't know the TERMS. If you think that is democratic I've got a contract here you can sign and I'll tell you the TERMS in 3 years time. In a real democracy you know what you're voting for BEFORE you vote – not 3 years later. Obviously a second referendum on the TERMS would be more democratic because the question is put back to the VOTERS. If it is still voted to Leave – then so be it – on the TERMS agreed.… Read more »

Tories who want to remain would love labour to push a second referendum. They’ll get what the want while at the same time labour essentially destroys their chance at government for the next 20 years 😂

brexit was funded to crash the pound.
Parliament has a duty to respect the 63 million plus population of OUR UK by representing everyone's interests in OUR representative democracy and not only the whiney 17.4 million brexiters.
It is not in the vast majority of OUR UK's interests to brexit crash the pound.
The best deal is no brexit and everyone knows it.

A Shadow Brexit Secretary whose solution is to Remain. Pathetic. The Labour Party's Brexit policy is still incoherent garbage and the General Election in December is going to reflect it on a massive scale. What a bunch of total losers.

Labour not backing revoking brexit is just sitting on the fence, Corbyn is a leaver and any who do not oppose him are not worthy of our votes. The LD chose the Clegg path, a little bit of power, a few more seats have wrecked any chance of stopping the no deal that will come if the really nasty party get a majority.

Yeah, lets have meaningful second vote. Thats how democracy will go wrong. If you are allowed to have second, then there will be third, and fourth vote. Democracy is not about getting the answer you want through the ballot box

What's the point of a second referendum when they've betrayed the first one?

Why should the EU care if Britain has a 2nd referendum?
Just reverse every change made.

The deal is there and Dublin and Brussels would love to see it passed.

If Labour support another referendum they will absolutely destroy their credibility. I can't believe the stupidity of their tactics over brexit which seem to have become an obsession while they watch the Labour Party poll ratings head even further south. Time for some Labour MP's to question self destructive tactics coming from Corbyn and Starmer if they do not want a Tory government for the next 15 years.

The labour party likes saying they put the national interest first that is a load of fodder all they put first are themselves and their financial interests. The reason they would not back a general election is because they know they can't win and another thing is they don't want to back any deal because they would just be handing the keys of downing Street back to Boris Johnson party political games, another reason why the labour party don't want a general election is because they are afraid of the pathetic and weak Jeremy Corbyn would be prime minister.

Being working class, I could never vote for the Labour Party – they're an out of touch, metro-elite who care nothing for the people they're supposed to represent. Witnessing democracy-denier Starmer attempt to tear apart the biggest democratic mandate in our history, in order to surrender our freedoms to a foreign power, just proves how out of touch, smug and arrogant they are. Everyone I know, and I mean 'everyone' I know, in this labour stronghold in the north that I call home, is saying exactly the same. Bring on the GE.
