Anti-referendum intent among Labour MPs increases
On Tuesday afternoon, the SKWAWKBOX reported the at least thirty-five Labour MPs intending to vote against any motion or amendment tabled to try to force a new Brexit referendum.
That number has continued to climb throughout the evening and the number now explicitly opposed to any new public vote on the issue has now passed fifty.
The group of MPs includes Labour front-benchers – and a significant number have supported party leader Jeremy Corbyn since the 2015 leadership election.
A free vote on any such amendment is needed to allow MPs to properly represent their constituents – especially those in northern towns.
