The Labour Party has hit the restart button as the latest polling saying the Tories are on course to win the General Election.
The party is understood to be changing tactics in its campaign, particularly in Leave-voting areas, where it is in danger of blowing seats to the Conservatives.
Labour close sources told the Euro Weekly News say a key mistake up until now was overestimating the electoral threat from the Lib Dems, and underestimating the chance of Leave voters switching from Labour to the Conservatives.
Labour’s tactics so far had been in part to stress that the election is about more than Brexit and to get voters to focus on issues which would unite Labour voters in Leave and Remain areas.
The new plan is designed to appeal to those who voted for Brexit, and to try to convince them that Labour is not attempting to stop Brexit by offering another referendum.
