Recently a Guardian article has been spreading titled: Corbyn: Brexit would go ahead even if Labour won snap election. This has concerned many Labour voters, who largely support a second referendum,
The reality of the situation should be examined. Just like how Labour didn’t vote for Theresa May’s soft-Brexit deal, Conservative MPs won’t vote for any deal Labour in the event of a Labour victory after a snap-General election. Party politics gets in the way.
Even if Labour wins a sizeable majority, most Labour MPs who don’t want to leave the EU would rebel, as they would have the confidence of the Labour Party Membership – Corbyn would simply fail to get enough support as both the Parliamentary Labour Party and Labour Party Members are united on this issue.
In that case, Labour has said that they would never allow a No-Deal Brexit – so as the politicians would have failed twice, they would have no choice but to go back to the public. Even Amber Rudd, the current Work and Pensions Secretary, admitted a Second Referendum could happen if MPs rejected the Brexit deal.
John McDonnell has said Labour will “inevitably” back a second referendum if the party is unable to force a general election, in comments widely regarded as marking a shift in Labour’s position.
General election or no general election, we’re more and more likely to be heading towards a Second Referendum.
