Here’s how the left should respond to Brexit

I wrote a piece for LabourList on the next move for the Labour party in response to the ongoing Brexit debate.

First, for the Labour party at home, a word of caution. Having campaigned to remain, we are not best placed to lead the increasingly vocal debate about a second referendum. True, there is a huge petition for a new vote. True, the referendum was won by the narrowest of margins following one of the most dishonest campaigns in political history. But it is primarily for regretful Leave voters who will take up the call.
