UK’s Labour Party members vote against committing party to campaign for Remain

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Labour’s annual conference has voted to reject a bid to commit the party to campaigning for Remain in any future EU referendum.

This translates itself in a way that Labour will almost certainly go into the general election expected within the next three months without a clear position on whether it would campaign to stay in the EU or leave in a referendum.

In a way, the result bolsters the position of leader Jeremy Corbyn, whose proposal to promise a referendum but wait until after the general election to decide which side to back was passed overwhelmingly.

And it marks a formidable setback to anti-Brexit campaigners who had hoped to secure Labour’s support in the fight for Remain.
