Parliament will stop Britain crashing out of the EU without a deal and could force another referendum, Labour MP Ben Bradshaw told CNN’s Hala Gorani.
“There’s an overwhelming majority of members of parliament who will not countenance crashing out with a deal. That won’t happen, we will stop it. And if the government itself won’t call another referendum, parliament will force it to.”
Labour’s position is that it favors a general election over a second referendum. But if the UK was on the verge of crashing out with no deal, Bradshaw predicted that Labour would swing behind a parliamentary effort to force a new vote.
“By the time we get to that scenario, when we’re facing down the barrel of a no deal gun, Labour will support it – as will the majority of parliament,” Bradshaw said.
