“My party`s pro-Brexit policy has failed. Today was and still is an opportunity to stop the hesitation and send a message to our lost voters - the voters to whom our party was created to give them a voice in Parliament - that we want to hear them, cherish them and really rebuild their trust,” she said. A referendum on the Brexit withdrawal deal, also known as the “second referendum,” has been proposed by a number of politicians and interest groups as a way to lift the deadlock in Parliament in 2017/19 for a meaningful vote on the Brexit deal. On the European Union side, the European Parliament also approved the ratification of the agreement on 29 January 2023[40] and the Council of the European Union approved the conclusion of the agreement by e-mail on 30 January 2020. [42] That is why, on 30 January 2020, the European Union also tabled its instrument for ratification of the agreement, concluding the agreement[43] and allowing it to enter into force on the date of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU on 31 January 2020, at 11 .m GMT. The following week, Labour announced that it would table its own second amendment in the referendum if its attempts to protect workers` rights, access to the internal market and membership of the Customs Union failed. [24] In September 2019, the Labour Party adopted the position of holding a public vote on whether or not to uphold the withdrawal agreement. [11] The Northern Ireland Protocol, known as the Irish Backstop, was an annex to the November 2018 draft agreement outlining provisions to avoid a hard border in Ireland after the UK`s withdrawal from the European Union. The protocol provided for a provision of the safety net to deal with the circumstances in which satisfactory alternative arrangements were to come into force at the end of the transition period. This project has been replaced by a new protocol that will be described as follows. On 22 October 2019, the House of Commons agreed, by 329 votes to 299, to give a second reading to the revised withdrawal agreement (negotiated by Boris Johnson earlier this month), but when the accelerated timetable it had proposed did not receive the necessary parliamentary support, Johnson announced that the law would be overturned. [38] [12] During Friday`s debate, Corbyn acknowledged that voters had indicated that they wanted to end the Brexit stalemate and said that Labour would “respect this decision and continue.”
