Senior Political Commentator John Rentoul explains how Jeremy Corbyn has gingerly set a foot down on one side of the fence on Brexit, backing a Final Say referendum.

The Labour leader told his shadow cabinet that the party should “demand that any deal is put to a public vote” on Wednesday.

Jeremy Corbyn should visit Hong Kong and explain to young people out protesting the virtues of Socialism, I am sure he will be well received.

Perhaps we could have a referendum on if we should have a second referendum? the choice would be Yes, or No. Sorted.
What a dipstick, Comrade Corbyn is worse than Theresa May, that's saying something, and Diane Abbott as Home Secretary? Please God, no.

corbyn should remain on the fence; labour are not negotiating brexit, the tories are.
they democratically won the 2016 election, being given the go ahead by the british people to carry on trying to get the best deal to leave from the eu, for the uk.
corbyn should continue to remain ambiguous until after october 31st; it would be the best thing for him if the tories took britain out of the eu.
the tories, media & labour remainers are desperate for corbyn to commit so they have something to rubbish him with; he must remain strong & resist giving in to his opponents, by agreeing to, & to me an undemocratic 2nd referendum.
the tories called the referendum which was democratically won by leave; the tories democratically won the 2016 election; brexit is their baby, democratically, not corbyn's. whether we stay or leave & whatever the success or failure, it has nothing to do with him-
it will all be down to the tories.
stay ambiguous jezza, & put the blame on the tories, ie, cameron, may & johnson or hunt.

Corbyn is the perfect idiot; Labour should sack him

Brexit delay will face Jeremy Corbyn is getting off the fence 2 days ago   02:17

Any future prime minister seeking to delay Brexit beyond the end of October would face "enormous hostility" from the European Union, the Irish Taoiseach has warned.

Leo Varadkar said an extension to the UK's membership would not be entertained for further negotiations or indicative votes, despite claims from the remaining Tory leadership contenders that they will be able to make changes to the withdrawal deal.

Arriving in Brussels at the start of the European Council summit, which will be dominated by the election of the bloc's top jobs, rather than Brexit, Mr Varadkar told reporters there was a "strong view" across the EU that there should be no more extensions.
