Labour has made a shift in its Brexit policy with 32 days to go. Here’s what it means, what happens next – and why it’s not as clear-cut as you think

Jeremy Corbyn has announced Labour will back plans for a second EU referendum.

The major announcement comes after months of pressure from Remain MPs and Labour’s membership to back a public vote.

But despite Labour’s support, it doesn’t mean that a second vote will definitely happen.

Exactly how and when Labour will back a second EU referendum is still not clear.

And more importantly, the numbers in Parliament are still not there.

Around two dozen Labour MPs are thought to be against the plan, worrying that it would be too divisive for the country.
