Labour move to back a second EU referendum

Delaying Brexit is now a “rational solution”, according to the European Council President Donald Tusk.

But at the EU-Arab summit in Egypt, Theresa May said a delay was not the answer.

With the time before the scheduled departure date running out, Mrs May also said it could be possible to ask parliament to vote on the withdrawal agreement before it had been finally approved by the other EU member states.

Tonight, Labour are putting more pressure on the government, with a further indication that they could end up backing another public vote on Brexit.
