UK's Labour Party ponders supporting new Brexit referendum

As delegates gathered, one message was emblazoned on hundreds of T-shirts and tote bags: "Love Corbyn, Hate Brexit".

The comments came on Sunday's Andrew Marr Show, on which he also claimed Labour would be prepared to vote down Theresa May's final Brexit deal in order to force the government back to the negotiating table with Brussels.

"Labour have to come to a decision".

In his interview with the Sunday Mirror, Mr Corbyn said: "I'm not calling for a second referendum".

Ian Murray, Labour MP for Edinburgh South and a member of the Best for Britain campaign, said: "There has been unprecedented demand from local Labour branches for the party to back a People's Vote, thousands have attended today's march in Liverpool, and opinion polls have demonstrated overwhelming support among members".

A "people's vote" was overwhelmingly the most popular issue raised by constituency Labour parties (CLPs) that submitted so-called "contemporary motions" to conference.

"The sheer levels of animosity that exists between Corbyn and his opponents is quite remarkable", Anand Menon, political professor at King's College London, told AFP ahead of the four-day event in Liverpool.

He said that if the United Kingdom exited the European Union without an agreement, it would be "disastrous for Northern Ireland" and could see a return to the way borders were operated during the Troubles with armed checkpoints.

Jeremy Corbyn has said that if Theresa May can't deliver Brexit, then an election must be given. Obviously I'm bound by the democracy of our party.

Labour agreed late on Sunday night the party will vote on Tuesday on a motion committing the party to support "all options remaining on the table, including campaigning for a public vote" if no election is triggered by May's Brexit plans. "A huge anti-Brexit surge of Labour members has hit Labour conference".

These centrist MPs now find themselves on the sidelines and battling for their political lives in the face of aggressive attempts by Corbyn's supporters to de-select them, with the NEC on Saturday voting for changes that will make the process easier.

He stressed that Kashmiris wanted self-determination for protecting their basic human right and wanted to live their life according to their own will.

The support of the main opposition party would be a major boost to campaigners for a second vote on Brexit.

Former foreign secretary David Miliband said it was an "absolute dereliction of duty" for Labour not to say that the deal obtained by the Prime Minister must be put to the people.

But with Brexit negotiations rapidly heading nowhere as the March 29 deadline looms, party members are demanding action.

He said the public had already settled the fundamental question of whether Britain should leave the bloc in 2016.

Yet Pro-EU Labour members, including many lawmakers, say the party's ambiguous stance is becoming increasingly untenable as the risk of an economically damaging "hard Brexit" grows.

Britain is to exit the European Union in March.

"The leadership knows where the members are and they know where their voters are".

"This is as big a crisis as I can remember in my lifetime", Adonis said.

Mr McCluskey added: 'Here's one of the problems Labour have, there are significant numbers of traditional Labour supporters who are saying we're going to vote Conservative because we don't trust labour to take us out of the European Union despite the fact that Jeremy has said repeatedly, of course we recognise the result of course we respect the result, we're coming out of the European Union'.

In a departure for Corbyn, the move would mean his MPs and hard-line Brexiteer Tories would vote together against Mrs May's Chequers plan. He has strong support among grassroots members, many of whom have joined since he was elected leader in 2015.
