    “Labour is poised to declare it will campaign for remain in a second referendum on any deal put to parliament by a Conservative prime minister, after trade union leaders including Unite’s Len McCluskey backed a change of policy.

    The joint position agreed by the unions on Monday would not commit Labour to an explicitly pro-remain position in all circumstances: unions also agreed Labour should seek to deliver a Brexit deal if the party won an election before the UK left the EU.”

    Probably too late, but
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

      “We will seek to deliver Brexit, and then hold a referendum on it and campaign against our own deal”

        If it’s a “Tory” Brexit, they’ll advocate remain, but if it’s a “Labour” Brexit, they’ll advocate leave.

        Classic.

        If the objective is to piss off everyone, Corbyn’s played a blinder

          I have a very astute friend who contends that UK elections are far more controlled than people give credit for. He maintains that Corbyn is such a threat to the UK in many ways, that Labour will not be allowed to win a general election whilst he is the leader of the party. I have no idea how he can claim this, but he does have some influential associates. I guess someone is maintaining a Bismark book.

              yes, so I gather, given his position in the organisation.

                    Pretty slim chance of that. Until Brexit is delivered (and maybe even after) the political spectrum is no longer left-center-right, it's remain-soft brexit-no deal Brexit. LibDem/SNP will cream the majority of remain voters - 30-40%, Brexit party will cream the no-deal votes and some soft brexit votes - 30-40% and the Tories and Labour will squabble for the remaining 20-40% since the former are to big of a pu**ies to have an official stand and the latter are just *******, who squandered 3 years.
