LONDON (Reuters) – The opposition Labour Party’s finance spokesman mentioned one other Brexit referendum is an choice if a vote of no confidence fails to carry down the government or set off a common election.

When requested if one other referendum is inevitable, John McDonnell instructed the BBC: “That’s right, we have said our policy is: if we can’t get a general election well then the other option which we have kept on the table is a people’s vote, a public vote.”
