Responding to Jeremy Corbyn’s speech this evening, in which he is set to call for a general election to break the Brexit deadlock, Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake said:
"If Corbyn really wants to know what the public thinks of Theresa May’s Brexit deal, he should support a people’s vote.
“It is shameful that Corbyn continues to sit on the fence on the biggest issue this country has faced since the Second World War. He is failing to provide proper opposition to this shambolic Conservative Government.
“Labour supporters who have joined the Liberal Democrats in calling, campaigning, and marching for a people’s vote are being ignored by their own party leader. It is time the Labour front bench stopped playing political games with our future and joined Liberal Democrats in calling for a people’s vote, including the option to remain in the EU.”
