Jeremy Corbyn: Second referendum could heal the UK

April FrancisMay 10, 2019

Henry Smith, Member of Parliament for Crawley, told local media that he can not "believe a word she [Prime Minister May] says" and lamented Britons having to take part in European Parliament elections at the end of this month.

After being questioned on the clarity of his message to voters, Mr Corbyn said he made "no apology" for the party "trying to offer something to everyone over Brexit".

Mr Smith would not be the first Brexiteer Tory MP to praise Mr Farage or his Brexit Party, with Lucy Allan MP tweeting last month that the party had "some fantastic candidates".

He said: 'Over 17 million people voted to leave the European Union.

"This is an election about delivering Brexit and we are in a situation where Labour and the Liberal Democrats are on about having a second referendum rather than honouring the people's vote we have already had", he said.

May has so far remained in office, refusing on Wednesday to offer her lawmakers a timetable detailing her plans to resign. "But quite honestly the government has to move its red lines".

'It's hard negotiating with a disintegrating government with cabinet ministers jockeying for the succession, rather than working for an agreement.

He insisted the "real divide in our country" was not over Europe but over the likes of austerity. "[But] it is in the country's interests to get this sorted, one way or the other".

In his speech in Kent Mr Corbyn said: 'It would be an elite Brexit that would only work for the richest, who want to deregulate slash public services and rights at work still further.

The government has for several weeks been in talks with the main opposition Labour party to find a compromise deal, but there is no sign of progress yet.

Mrs May's official spokesman told reporters on Thursday: "The discussions have been serious across a number of different areas, but clearly there remain outstanding matters that need to be nailed down".

The one line in the Labour manifesto that refers to "the option of a public vote" on a Brexit deal was the subject of a lengthy wrangle at a meeting of Labour's ruling national executive committee last week.

He said Mr Farage's Brexit Party, which leads Labour in the polls ahead of the European elections, was "the No Deal Party" and its ideas threatened millions of jobs.

May said the United Kingdom would not have to take part if MPs agreed a Brexit plan first.
