Labour should support a referendum on the terms of the Brexit deal negotiated by the Government, Sadiq Khan and Kezia Dugdale have suggested today. Labour frontbenchers John McDonnell and Andrew Gwynne did not rule out the possibility, it was reported.
Commenting, Ben Bradshaw MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:
“It is heartening to see more and more senior Labour figures challenging the Government’s brazen attempt to railroad Britain into an extreme and destructive Brexit.
“It is now clear that the Brexit people were sold – with £350 million more a week for the NHS and the ‘exact same benefits’ on trade – will not be delivered.
“When the Government presents a deal, if it finally manages to negotiate one, the British people have every right to express a view on that deal. Democracy did not end on 23rd June last year.”
