As Labour members opposed to a 2nd referendum, we have tried to respect the decision made at Labour conference to keep an EU referendum as a potential option, to be considered as a very last resort. However, it is now being sold as an option under all circumstances by MPs such as Tom Watson and Jess Phillips. This is not how we interpret Labour policy and are very concerned about this development, particularly as we the members are regularly cited as being in support of this stance.

We agree with Barry Gardiner that we are not a Remain Party. A 2nd EU Referendum will not break the deadlock or bring resolution, particularly if it is seen to be rigged, with only 2 options: a much maligned deal or Remain. If a WTO option is kept off the ballot, as so many Labour MPs insist it should be, so should Remain. Without these 2 options, we can have a calm debate and a referendum on what type of Brexit we want, from the softest possible, to May's deal. That is just one suggestion to resolve the issue, but many others exist. A Referendum on May's deal versus Remain will cost the Labour Party dear in lost trust, and tear ordinary struggling people apart yet again. It is our role as a party to focus on unifying them. 


We want the Labour Party to hold an emergency conference, or at least ballot all members electronically on their current views regarding our Brexit policy and how it should be implemented.
