MOVES by Jeremy Corbyn for a second referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU are ‘a betrayal’ of the local electorate.

We have had four votes on this - the European elections in 2014, which UKIP won, the General Election in 2015, which initiated the EU referendum of 2016 and a General Election in 2017, in which both Labour and Tory parties had manifestos that promised to uphold the result of the referendum.

Jeremy Corbyn has always been in favour of leaving the EU and is now only cynically backing a second referendum to try to save his splintered Party and it has nothing to do with what is right for the country. This is a complete betrayal of the British public.
