UK Labour party rejects EU ‘remain’ position

Sep 23, 2019
Members of Britain’s Labour Party voted against deciding to immediately campaign to stay in the European Union, a boost to leader Jeremy Corbyn who wants to first secure a national election and then determine Labour’s stance.
 
In a show of hands, members at the party’s annual conference voted against a motion brought by EU supporters to force the party to adopt a so-called “remain” position now before an election and possible second referendum.
 
Corbyn has been under pressure to back staying in the EU, but the Labour leader has argued it is more important to unite a party split over Brexit before deciding which way to campaign – either to leave with a deal or to remain in the bloc.
