(Reuters) - Britain’s opposition Labour Party will vote on a motion this week to keep all options on the table including a second Brexit referendum if the party cannot get a national election, BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg said on Twitter.

British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said earlier he would back a second Brexit referendum if his Labour Party voted to pursue the move, heaping pressure on Prime Minister Theresa May, whose plans for a divorce deal with the EU have hit an impasse.
