In response to the government's crushing defeat in the Commons on Theresa May's Brexit deal, Green MEP for the South East Keith Taylor said:
"What everyone knew was going to happen has happened. Our sovereign Parliament has rejected the Conservatives' terrible Brexit deal. While it is clear now that the only way through this mess is to take the decision back to the people whether that happens depends solely on Jeremy Corbyn. The majority of his MPs, Labour members and supporters back giving the public the final say. Will Mr Corbyn stand up and put the future of Britain ahead of his narrow party political aims? Whether we get a general election or not, now is the time for Labour to back a People's Vote. History will judge them little more kindly than the Conservatives if he doesn't."
