Labour party formally backs new referendum on Brexit (FT): Jeremy Corbyn has said that his opposition Labour party will formally back a new Brexit referendum after its own plan for the United Kingdom leaving the EU, including permanent membership of the European customs union, failed in a parliamentary vote.
Jeremy Corbyn has confirmed that Labour will support a second Brexit referendum, after his alternative Brexit plan was defeated again in the Commons.
UK Labour and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn has pledged to back a second referendum after his Brexit alternative was voted down in Commons on Wednesday.
Prime Minister Theresa May was scheduled to face a vote early this morning, Singapore time, by MPs over her newly revised Brexit strategy, which allows for a possible request to delay Britain's European Union departure if her divorce deal is not approved.
An amendment from Labour's Yvette Cooper reiterating Mrs May's plan to ask MPs if they want an extension to Article 50 if her withdrawal deal is rejected passed by 502 votes to 20.
But shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon indicated Labour would not be throwing its weight behind a second referendum just yet.
Mr Nuttall said: "We have had four votes on this - the European elections in 2014, which UKIP won, the General Election in 2015, which initiated the EU referendum of 2016 and a General Election in 2017, in which both Labour and Conservative parties had manifestos that promised to uphold the result of the referendum".
Mr Corbyn told Labour MPs on Monday that he was ready to support moves to demand a second public vote "to prevent a damaging Tory Brexit being forced on the country".
Carol Burton: "We voted to Leave, we do not want or need another Brexit referendum, we need to cut all ties with the European Union and walk away, get us out what we all voted for, do we get another vote if we don't like who gets in power or we don't like our local MP, no we don't, so neither should Brexit, this has been dragged on far to long, leave means leave".
BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg says it is now extremely unlikely that the United Kingdom will leave at the end of March without a deal.
"I appreciate that a majority voted to leave the European Union in 2016 but I can not in good faith support a deal which would see people lose their jobs, their rights and ultimately affect the British economy and security".
MPs have voted against adopting Labour's Brexit policy in the latest Commons battle over the UK's approach to leaving the EU.
Kyle said he was now confident the Labour leadership would back his rewritten amendment, along with a number of Conservative MPs, meaning there was an increasing prospect it would succeed.
If there is a deal, there will be no change for citizens and businesses until at least the end of 2020.
Eustice, a long Brexit supporter, said that he will take part in the parliamentary debate on Brexit as an independent.
If this is also rejected, MPs will hold another vote on whether to extend Brexit by delaying Article 50.
When another MP told Javid that the government had suggested it would fight the amendment, he said: "When did you hear that?" But the European Union is reluctant and she only has until March 12 if Britain is to leave on time. That will happen on March 29 unless Britain delays or reverses the decision.
