Chuka Umunna claims there are only two options left on Brexit

Streatham MP Chuka Umunna has claimed that only two options are left to prevent crashing out of the EU without a deal: to revoke article 50 or to call a second referendum.

“Ultimately, if we are faced with the prospect of falling out, of crashing out – which is totally possible in the next two weeks – then you either revoke or you refer it back to the people,” he said at the People’s Vote march. “There are only two ways to stop no deal.”

Umunna, a former Labour MP and founder member of parliament’s new Independent Group, also called on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to back what Labour party members’ have “demanded” and support a referendum.

Labour students followed closely behind The Independent Group, but refused to comment on the absence of the Labour leader.
