'You're TEARING UP your manifesto!' Labour MP put on spot over second Brexit vote demand

LABOUR Remainer Rushanara Ali was put on the spot by Vicky Ford as the Conservative MP claimed Ms Ali was "tearing up" her party's 2017 manifesto in favour of a second Brexit referendum.

Speaking on BBC Politics Live, the Labour MP advocated for an early general election in which her party would campaign for a second Brexit referendum to be a feasible alternative to Theresa May's deal. Ms Ali argued Jeremy Corbyn's party should stand on a manifesto that included a second vote featuring the option to Remain in the European Union.

She said: “I think that we should have a manifesto commitment, if there is an early election, to a public vote, to a second referendum.

But the former member of the European Parliament Vicky Ford put the Labour MP on the spot as she pointed out she had already stood on a party manifesto that promised to deliver on the Brexit referendum result.

The Tory MP said: “So in other words, the manifesto you stood on last year you have now rejected.
