Shadow chancellor John McDonnell tells ITV News that a general election would be “the real People’s Vote” on Brexit.
Labour members will vote on a Brexit motion stating the party should “support all options remaining on the table, including campaigning for a public vote” if it cannot force a general election.
Mr McDonnell stressed that Labour “respected” the June 2016 referendum result, and so any second referendum would not be another vote on whether the UK should leave the EU or not, but on the terms of any deal negotiated by the Government.
