No Brexit consensus without new referendum: Labour

So Conservative voters are moving away en masse, particularly in the south, but also it was clear that the Labour party lost seats and didn't gain ground where the Conservatives were failing, and then in the north of England they too suffered due to their unclear view on Brexit.

Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, a longtime critic of the European Union, has shied away from committing to a second Brexit referendum - to the fury of a majority of his lawmakers, who believe a second vote on European Union membership would overturn the June 2016 plebiscite, in which a thin majority voted for Brexit.
