Jeremy Corbyn Labour Party leader in the UK has defended his decision to remain “neutral” in a second EU referendum, he said it is a sign of “strength and maturity”.
The Labour leader came under attack after disclosing he would not take sides in the proposed public vote on a new Brexit deal which the party intends to negotiate with Brussels.
The Tories who are leading the election polls in England were not impressed on the plan, and accused Mr Corbyn of “deciding to be indecisive” on the biggest issue facing the country.
But on an election campaign pit stop in Sheffield England, Mr Corbyn insisted he is offering a “sensible way forward” which can finally bring the United Kingdom together.
“I think being an honest broker and listening to everyone is actually a sign of strength and a sign of maturity,” he said.
“My role as the Labour prime minister would be to ensure that is carried out in a fair way, that the offers put are fair, and that I will carry out the result of that referendum.
“I think this is actually a sensible way forward that actually can bring people together.”
