There appears to be the beginning of a move in Labour to a more unequivocal Remain position, but some of Labour's heartland constituencies were some of the places where the Brexit Party did best. Could a Labour victory at a general election happen without them winning their traditional safe seats in towns like Middlesbrough? I can't see it, but I could be wrong. I think a clearly pro-Remain Labour would lose seats it would need to form a government.
This is probably true, however unless Labour now becomes clearly pro remain, or at least pro second vote,
it will clearly lose far more seats elsewhere.
They are between a rock and a hard place, and are deliberately trying to maintain an ambiguous policy as a result. They've been deserted by both sets of voters as a result.
I think that is right.
