LONDON (Reuters) - Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said the British public should be asked again to give its verdict on Brexit, either through a general election or a second referendum.

“With the Conservatives disintegrating and unable to govern, and parliament deadlocked, this issue will have to go back to the people, whether through a general election or a public vote,” Corbyn said.

“Over the coming days we will have conversations across our party and movement, and reflect on these results on both sides of the Brexit divide.”
