UK's Labour party ponders supporting new Brexit referendum

To drive home the message, several thousand People's Vote supporters marched through Liverpool on Sunday, waving blue-and-yellow EU flags alongside Union Jacks and holding signs reading "Exit from Brexit" and a few ruder slogans.

The motion that will be voted on by party members on Tuesday commits Labour to supporting a public vote if it can not force a general election, saying the party should consider "all options remaining on the table".

Ever since Britain voted in 2016 to leave the EU, Labour has said it will respect the result, although it wants a closer relationship with the bloc than the one Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative government is seeking.

"The motion before the Labour conference doesn't rule out a second referendum", Brendan Chilton, general secretary of the Labour Leave campaign, told Reuters.

Corbyn told the BBC on Sunday he would "adhere" to whatever came out of conference, although he would prefer to hold a general election instead.

"The time has gone for sitting on the fence", said Mike Buckley of campaign group Labour for a People's Vote.

A number of different automakers have embraced Amazon's Alexa , but that doesn't help millions of drivers who own older vehicles. The Sub features a down-firing 6-inch subwoofer with 100W of power and pairs wirelessly with any existing Echo or Echo Plus .

Shadow equalities minister Ms Butler's comments were criticised by fellow Labour frontbencher Baroness Thornton.

A Labour spokesman said: "The point Dawn was making was that like the Thatcher government of the 1980s, this Tory Government has prioritised tax cuts for the rich while cutting services like women's refuges that save lives and keep women safe".

"It would have been great for me to be able to job-share in that role", she said.

Britain's Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn sits on stage at the annual Labour Party Conference in Liverpool, Britain, September 23, 2018.

"Because as soon as we change government the whole atmosphere will change". "But the reason we demand a People's Vote is because it unites 75 to 80 per cent of people in the country. We desperately need a general election".
