UK's Labour Party backs leader; to stay neutral on Brexit

The series of three votes leaves the party's position somewhat ambiguous, reflecting the fact that the membership in general prefers to stay in the EU while Corbyn and some in his inner circle prefer not to take a CLEAR stance.

If unchanged, it means that the party would not take an active "remain" or "leave" position if there is another referendum on the question of EU membership, and would seek to remain neutral in a national election.
[...]
Their complicated scenario calls for the party to win an election, take power, negotiate a new deal with the EU, schedule a referendum on whether to endorse the new deal or remain in the EU, then hold a special party conference to determine the party's position on the matter.

I assume that is just a restatement of the letter? Would be silly if you promise to negotiate a deal and then campaign against it from the outset.

"purdah rules"?
wtf. I'm not thinned-skinned, but that idiom epitomizes just how atavistic and crass post-colonial British culture is.

Second, under what rock was Corbyn hiding in '15 that he needed to solict government advice? "While it's likely the issue will be contested in courts ...":omfg. "The government remains in office but there are conventional  constraints on what it can do during that period" when parliament is dissolved.(Miller (Appellant) v. Prime Minister. 24.09.2019)

Third, what is his "deal"? He doesn't mention. Where is his new, mo' better than Boris "non-paper" deal with the EU he knows will rally the plebs to PV and the MPs to NCV with "alternative arrangements" that satisfy EU customs regulation?

Y'all have lost the plot.
