(Reuters) - The finance chief of Britain's main opposition Labour Party has said privately that the party should campaign to prevent Brexit, the Sunday Times newspaper reported bit.ly/30xzqCv.
John McDonnell has argued that Labour’s position should be to revoke article 50 and stop Brexit in its tracks, according to the newspaper. A spokesman for McDonnell cited by the Sunday Times denied the report and dismissed its claims.
McDonnell has previously said Labour must back a public vote on Brexit.
