Commenting on the Times/YouGov poll that put Labour on 18% and in fourth place, Phil Wilson MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign said:
“Day after day, poll after poll shows the dismay among voters over Labour’s failure to offer a clear and principled position backing a final say referendum.
“So long as the doubt and confusion continues over whether it will support a final say on any Brexit outcome - and on whether it will campaign to stay in the EU - Labour will continue to shed votes to parties like the Liberal Democrats.
“The foot-dragging, can-kicking consultation with this committee or that union chief only underlines that on this crucial issue our party is not showing the leadership members and voters expect – and the country needs.
“In the face of two contenders for the Conservative Party leadership who appear determined to exclude the public from deciding our Brexit future, more and more voters will pick parties who trust the people to decide. If Labour continues to equivocate it can only lose.”
