Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

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.


Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
