EXCL Sir Keir Starmer calls for Labour to back Remain in new EU referendum

He said: „In the aftermath of the local elections and particularly the EU elections, there are many in the Labour party who feel we need to be very clear about a second referendum and about making the case for Remain.

„That’s certainly what I’m advocating, discussions are going on at the moment, I hope we can resolve it pretty soon, and that will be a material step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned.“

The electoral consequences of backing a second referendum could be severe for Labour

Some wonder if backing a second referendum would make Labour the ‘party of Remain’. As the anger grows within Labour heartlands over such an extreme and historic betrayal, this could be an overly optimistic portrayal. The Labour Party is gradually morphing into the party of anti-democrats, the party that collaborated in and drove one of the greatest betrayals of the British people in our history.

JOHN MANN: Why it would be catastrophic if Remainers Dominic Grieve, John Bercow, Keir Starmer and Amber Rudd succeed in delaying or halting Brexit

A country, proud and independent, standing on its own two feet, ­confident again in our democracy, bold enough to compete by being the best, British workers making high- quality products and delivering high-quality services.

A country that says it will be the best by having better pay, conditions and a healthier environment than anyone else in Europe or worldwide.

Is that not something to be confident in voting for, my fellow MPs? Let’s get on with it.
