London, February 26 (RHC)-- In Britain, the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said Monday his party will back a second Brexit referendum if lawmakers fail to pass his party’s proposed amendments to the contested deal.
The announcement came as Prime Minister Theresa May is reportedly considering delaying Brexit, as well as a vote that would take a no-deal Brexit off the table.
May postponed this week’s crucial parliamentary vote on Brexit, pushing it to March 12, some two weeks before Britain is currently scheduled to depart the EU. Last week, nine Labour and three Conservative lawmakers defected from their respective parties over concerns about Brexit, forming an independent bloc.
