Labour must not rule out second European Union referendum, says Starmer

Labour must not rule out second European Union referendum, says Starmer

"Maybe when (Prime Minister Robert) Peel split with his own party over the Corn Laws in 1846".

In a message to Mrs May, Mr Corbyn said: "Take no-deal off the table now please, Prime Minister".

Mr Boles's EU Withdrawal (Number 2) Bill aims to put Parliament in control of the Brexit process, demanding an extension to the Article 50 process to allow negotiations to continue beyond the scheduled date of Brexit on March 29.

Anti-Brexit campaigner Jane Keane said Parliament's impasse was "a democratic crisis", and urged lawmakers to order a new referendum on Britain's European Union membership.

"The Legal Service. takes the view that. the European Council could validly adopt a decision containing a scenario for the composition of Parliament without seats envisaged for the United Kingdom, if the latter had not formally withdrawn from the Union at the time of adoption of this decision", the legal said.

May will publish her revived Brexit blueprint on Monday, before lawmakers debate it on January 29.

She added: "We have very strict export rules, others have less strict rules ..."

The prime minister told reporters in Paris on Thursday: "What's certain is that the scenario of a no-deal Brexit is less and less unlikely".

"We are two months away from leaving the European Union and so the most important thing is that we leave and I can't see how an acceptable deal is going to be achieved before then".

With Mrs May set to present a Brexit Plan B to the Commons on Monday, Labour former prime minister Gordon Brown used a speech in Edinburgh yesterday to call on the government to extend Article 50 by a year in order to consult the public.

Where are the young ones with a real impact in terms of results? They help me, they are helping me a lot. With the injuries to Felli as well and the squad we have, I'm not sure we're going to see any movement".

Corbyn insists Labour will not take part unless May first rules out a "no-deal" Brexit, which she says she doesn't have the power to do.

"She can go back to Brussels, and she should go back to Brussels and say that the British House of Commons doesn't accept the democratic consequences of the arrangement you have imposed in the form of the backstop", he said.

Mr Corbyn said today (Thursday): "The central policy of the government has been decisively rejected".

But opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he would only meet May if she could "remove clearly, once and for all the prospect of the catastrophe of a no-deal Brexit".

Corbyn has previously accused May of trying to force lawmakers to back her plan by running down the clock until it is the only alternative to no deal.

"In the coming days and weeks, we will do everything we can so that Britain exits with and not without an agreement", he told the Bundestag (German parliament).

"I don't think it is any secret I firmly believe there should be a Remain option - and there has to be a genuine Leave option", he said. "Last night's offer of talks with party leaders turned out to be simply a stunt, not the serious attempt to engage with the new reality that's needed".

May wrote that the European Union would not agree to extend Britain's membership simply to allow more debate on Brexit.

Standing just yards away, pro-Brexit painter-decorator Thomas Prior was adamant that Parliament must do the exact opposite, and walk away from the European Union without a deal.
