Labour’s Corbyn: no agreement with May on referendum
LONDON (Reuters) – UK opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said there had been no agreement with Prime Minister Theresa May on the option of a second referendum when they met to discuss possible ways out of the Brexit impasse.
“It was raised by me at the beginning of the meeting: I said this is a policy of my party that we would want to pursue the option of a public vote to prevent crashing out or prevent leaving on a bad deal,” Corbyn said on Wednesday.
“There was no agreement reached on that. We just put it there.”
