GBP

In the tabloids this morning was news Jeremy Corbyn is facing further pressure to back a second Brexit referendum after polling showed clear support among Labour members for another vote. A study of more than 1,000 members found 72 per cent want Corbyn to throw his weight behind a so-called People's Vote.

The Labour party leader, a known Eurosceptic, has resisted calls within the party to back another referendum. Corbyn has called for a general election and promised to strike his own Brexit deal with Brussels. The study also found backing for a second vote among Labour supporters.

Reports suggest tens of thousands of Labour members could be prepared to quit the party over the leadership's approach to Brexit.
