(Reuters) - British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn will back a move on Wednesday for Labour party to change its Brexit policy and support a second referendum in all circumstances, The Times reported, citing a senior Labour source.

 

Labour, which along with the Conservatives saw its support slump at the European elections as voters expressed their frustration over Brexit deadlock, is divided over whether to unequivocally support holding a second referendum.

 

Corbyn has so far only said the option of another Brexit vote should be kept on the table, along with a national election. The prospect poses a dilemma as many of the party's supporters backed Brexit.

Finally someone who will attempt to stop the insanity. 

He probably will re-route the irrationality but won't stop it.

More Labour voters will be joining Nigels Brexit Party now, well done Mr Eurosceptic Jeremy Corbyn. ☺️☺️☺️

Farage needs to find support somewhere, at the last outing 43,000 (over 80% of former Leave voters) went AWOL.

Yes you keep banding these meaningless figures about for some reason, but if it gives you some solace, so be it.

If you wish to dispute the numbers please give it a try.
