Jeremy Corbyn has announced that he will demand a second European Union referendum when the next Prime Minister is in post.

Lawmakers Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt are competing to replace Ms.

But the Prime Minister refused to compromise and was unable to deliver, so we ended cross-party talks.

The victor is due to take office later this month and will have barely more than three months to win support for a Brexit deal before the scheduled October 31 departure date.

In a letter to members he said: "Whoever becomes the new Prime Minister should have the confidence to put their deal, or no deal, back to the people in a public vote".

In that scenario, the choice on the ballot paper would be between Labour's deal and remaining in the EU, the unions said, and how Labour campaigned in a second referendum would depend on the deal negotiated.

The Labour leader's apparent reluctance to nail his colours to the mast of Remain have been complicated by the fact that an estimated four million Labour voters backed leave in the European Union referendum.

Corbyn says the party will take this position to stop "no deal or a damaging Tory Brexit".

Corbyn's letter clarified the party's position - up to a point.

Two former Labour minsters have quit the party amid continuing controversy over anti-Semitism within its ranks.

Veteran Labour politician Hilary Benn who chairs the House of Commons Brexit committee described the new move as a significant step forward.

But the party is silent on what would happen in the event of an election and what would be in the Labour manifesto. "We got 14% of the vote", he said.

Some critics accused Mr Corbyn of caving in to pressure to turn Labour into "the party of Remain" - while others said the decision showed it was "the party of Brexit".

John Mann, the MP for Bassetlaw, said there was no sign that voters in the party's traditional heartlands in the North and Midlands who backed Leave in the referendum, had changed their minds.

A group of peers have resigned the Labour whip with one claiming leader Jeremy Corbyn and "his circle" are "antisemitic".

Hunt and Johnson are due to square off on Tuesday evening in their only head-to-head debate in the campaign.

Both vow to succeed where Ms.

I've always taken the so-called special relationship with a pinch of salt, because it's something that's used for political purposes, and it gets us involved in conflicts that are frankly none of our business in this country, but on the subject of trade which is far more important; I think back to just before the 2016 referendum when Barack Obama on the advice of David Cameron came to the United Kingdom, and we remember that remark he made about Britain being at the back of the queue in terms of a trade relationship, so that tells you that the special relationship comes and goes depending on who's in the White House, and who's in Downing Street. But many Conservatives think embracing a no-deal Brexit may be the only way to win back voters from the upstart Brexit Party led by Nigel Farage.

Johnson called Hunt "defeatist" in his strategy to delay.
