Jeremy Corbyn: Public vote is only way out of Brexit crisis

Alastair Campbell speaks to the media outside his home after he was expelled from Labour

Ms Swinson has said that she will combat "populism and nationalism" if she is elected to leader the party - which is buoyant after impressive poll ratings and a stunning second place finish across the United Kingdom in last week's European Elections.

Mr Brown was hopeful of a Labour win despite the party's poor showing in the European elections.

The decision to expel Campbell from the party is now under review, after public accusations of hypocrisy in the decision.

He said: "The Cleggmania of 2010 faded fast, with the party falling back in the final weeks of the campaign and ending up with just 1% more of the vote than they had won five years prior".

Sir Ed said he would propose a "cross-party humble address to Her Majesty, requiring the Prime Minister to revoke Article 50 if we got to the cliff edge".

He said: "The results of my Brexit poll are clear".

Ms Swinson is the favourite to lead the party, which now has ten MPs, but will face stiff competition from Mr Davey, who has made an eye-catching pledge to use parliamentary rules involving the Queen to halt a no-deal Brexit.

He said Jeremy Corbyn's closest colleagues think he is "bonkers" on Brexit - adding muted support for another referendum is increasingly isolating him from his own frontbenchers.

Former No10 spin doctor Alastair Campbell (pictured speaking to reporters at his London home this week) said John McDonnell and Keir Starmer had told him the decision to eject him for voting Lib Dem at the European Union election should be reviewed.

Speaking in Peterborough ahead of next Thursday's by-election, Mr Brown said the Brexit Party leader was a "back-seat driver" in the race to replace outgoing leader Theresa May.

Tony Blair's former spin doctor Campbell, who is appealing against his expulsion from the party, has said there was "no justification" for the decision.

Corbyn, who has said the option of a second referendum should be kept on the table, is under pressure to endorse one without qualification after Labour lost votes to the anti-Brexit Liberal Democrats in last week's European Parliament election. The poll, conducted on 28 and 29 May, also found that almost 70% of voters believed Brexit was the most important issue facing the UK.
