UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn moves closer to backing second Brexit referendum

British Prime Minister Theresa May plans a "bold offer" to Parliament to win support for her Brexit deal, urging lawmakers to look at her ideas with fresh eyes.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has revealed details of her "new Brexit deal", which includes concessions meant to appease Britain's opposition Labour Party, and is nearly certain to be her final attempt to get the troubled agreement across the line.

The WAB - which is needed to ratify the deal with Brussels - is expected to include new measures on protecting workers' rights, an issue where agreement with Labour was said to have been close. Labour wants to stick close to European Union rules in order to guarantee seamless trade, while the government wants a looser relationship that would leave Britain freer to strike new trade deals around the world.

He twice voted against the Prime Minister's withdrawal agreement but backed it at the third attempt in March, when it was again rejected by MPs in the House of Commons.

Three years since Britain voted to leave the European Union and nearly two months after the planned departure date, May is mounting a last bid to try to get the deeply divided parliament's backing for a divorce deal and leave office with some kind of legacy.

Most MPs in parliament have always opposed an exit from the European Union and many are vociferously against a WTO-style Brexit so when faced with a choice between the latter, a politically explosive decision to revoke Article 50 and supporting the PM, some of them could well choose to back the Prime Minister's agreement.

If Boris Johnson, the current favourite, becomes the new Tory leader and Prime Minister, pundits have warned that a no-deal Brexit is more likely.

The party's support was unchanged from a week ago.

Brexit talks between May's Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party collapsed on Friday hours after May agreed to set out in early June a timetable for her departure.

He said Labour would oppose May's deal when it returns to parliament early next month.

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has been calling for a second referendum to cancel the first since 2016.

With that end in mind, she set out a "new Brexit deal" which sets out a "ten-point offer to everyone in Parliament who wants to deliver the result of the referendum".

She has tried to secure backing from lawmakers with promises to maintain high standards on workers' rights and environmental protections - issues that are priorities for the left-of-center opposition Labour Party.

Under Conservative Party rules, only MPs are able to vote in the initial stages of the leadership election, narrowing the field to two candidates who are then put forward to the party membership.

"So as part of the new Brexit deal we will place the government under a legal obligation to seek to conclude alternative arrangements by December 2020 so that we can avoid any need for the backstop coming into force".

The BBC and other media quoted him as saying he would push for a Brexit deal to "protect jobs, businesses and future prosperity".
