The leaked version of the Labour manifesto has confirmed Jeremy Corbyn's Labour won't give the people the final say on the Brexit deal.

This comes after Jeremy Corbyn made clear that Labour believes Britain must leave the EU whatever the agreement reached, in an interview with BBC Look North yesterday.

Former Liberal Democrat party president Simon Hughes said: "Jeremy Corbyn's Labour has waved the white flag and given Theresa May a blank cheque to pursue a divisive Brexit.

"Now this leaked manifesto confirms they are refusing to give the British people the final say over the Brexit deal, no matter how bad it is.

"A better future is available. The Liberal Democrats will stand up to Theresa May's cold, mean-spirited Britain and against a bad Brexit deal that will cost jobs and put up prices.

"We will give you the final say on Brexit - with the option to stay in if you don't like the deal on offer."
