In a press conference earlier today, Jeremy Corbyn stated Labour could delay Brexit if they won a snap election, in order to renegotiate Brexit. Responding, Labour MP and Best for Britain champion Ian Murray said:
“Jeremy is right that Article 50 will need to be extended if we somehow manage to secure a General Election.
“But it would be a betrayal of our voters if we went into such an election vowing to continue with Brexit, and we would certainly pay the price at the ballot box. Any type of Brexit will harm workers and the communities we represent, while making people poorer.
“If, as is likely, an attempt to hold a General Election fails, it is incumbent on the Labour leadership to immediately throw its support behind a people’s vote and campaign to remain in the EU.”
