Corbyn edges toward supporting a fresh referendum, still prefers election

Comments from ITV’s Robert Peston:

The latest comment from Jeremy Corbyn is this:

“We need a general election to break the deadlock. And if that can’t be achieved, and we can’t get agreement in Parliament along the lines of our alternative plan, we will back the option of a public vote.

Importantly, he seems to have dropped his prior conditions that he would only support a referendum on a “bad Tory deal or a no-deal Brexit.”

At this point, the market will cheer any move that looks like it has a slim hope of ending the Brexit quagmire.
