Over the coming days the Labour Party is drafting its manifesto for the European Parliament elections. Needless to say, the wording of Labour’s Brexit policy will be contested, and whatever is agreed will have big implications. Without a clear commitment from Labour to a public vote, Nigel Farage’s new far right party could top the poll.
The Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, and deputy leader, Tom Watson, will be pivotal in determining what happens. So we are encouraging Labour Party members to email them both today. We have drafted some suggested text below. Please make any changes you would like, add your name at the bottom and then hit send. Remember to be polite and courteous in your email.
This is a crucial moment for Labour members to speak up and to help secure a clear commitment to a People’s Vote.
