BBC Question Time audience GROANS at Emily Thornberry for same old Labour answer

“To break the deadlock, an election is not only the most practical option, but it is also the most democratic option. It would give the winning party a renewed mandate to negotiate a better deal for Britain and secure support for it in Parliament and across the country.

“For both sides, the EU referendum was about so much more than our relationship with our biggest trading partner and its rules. It was about what’s happened to our people over decades and how to build a better future.

“The need for a government with a clear purpose and direction for the country could not be more urgent. Labour stands ready to bring Leave and Remain voters together to rebuild Britain for the many, not the few.”

The Labour Party has said that all options remain “on the table” including a second Brexit vote, should Mrs May’s deal crumble.

Adding to Mr Gardiner’s comments that Labour would call a no-confidence vote in the Government “immediately after” Mrs May losing her crunch vote, a Labour spokesperson said: “If the government is defeated next week, it will clearly have lost the confidence of parliament and there should be a general election.

“We have always said that it’s a matter of when not if we table a motion of no confidence and we’ll judge the timing day by day.”
