Lammy – Labour must listen to members and back a People’s Vote with right to stay in the EU

Responding to comments by Labour Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell this morning, David Lammy MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“Over a hundred motions were submitted to Labour Conference, thousands have marched on the streets, and millions more have called for a Peoples Vote.

“Labour members support a People's Vote by almost nine to one. 90% of Labour members want to stay in the EU. The leadership of the Labour Party must continue to listen to them.

“They did not do this to be offered a farcical referendum on no deal or a bad deal. It absolutely must include the right to stay in the EU.”
