Owen Smith, Labour Leadership Candidate, to Offer Second Referendum


Owen Smith, a contender in the Labour leadership contest, has indicated in an interview with the Guardian newspaper that he would have a second referendum on the EU if elected.

He told the newspaper:

“That does mean a second referendum or a general election when the terms are clear. The Labour government should be committing to that”.

The Guardian added:

“Eagle told the Guardian she supported a similar position on the referendum, agreeing that any rush to implement Brexit should be avoided, and any deal followed by a second vote or election”.
