On Sunday, Ms. May reiterated her opposition to holding a second referendum, saying it would be divisive and disrespectful to those who voted to leave in the initial vote, and also highlighted a lack of time available to hold a new referendum.

"There are some MPs who are looking for an excuse to back the deal and so, something tokenistic and declaratory from the European Union on the backstop clause would work for them, but I don't understand how that would work for the DUP, and that's where the action is", he added.
Ms Thornberry said she believed another general election was the most likely way of breaking the current impasse on Brexit, adding that it could happen "within months".
"Most people seem to say that's not what they want to see, well they better make up their minds before we get to a week on Tuesday because that's going to be a very key decision-making point".
Mr Gardiner insisted that a Labour government would be able to get a "different, better deal" to the one secured by Mrs May as it would not have the same red lines.
