Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Jeremy Corbyn has said he will back giving the British people a final say on Brexit in a new referendum if party members vote for it at Labour's conference this week.

...

Mr Corbyn also said he would join forces with rebel Tories to vote down Theresa May's Brexit plans in parliament if they did not meet Labour's tests, with The Independent reporting on Saturday that the party would then maximise pressure on the prime minister by seeking a motion of no confidence in the government if her proposals fell.

Labour will launch a plan to force an election by seeking a motion of no confidence in the government within days if Theresa May's Brexit deal is defeated in parliament, The Independent has learnt.

Jeremy Corbyn and his top team will launch an attempt to force the Conservative administration to go to the people at what they believe will be a moment of maximum weakness for the prime minister.

Multiple sources confirmed party chiefs have game-planned their approach if Ms May's beleaguered proposals are vetoed in a crucial commons vote or if she fails to get a deal in Europe, which looks increasingly likely after EU leaders torpedoed them earlier this week.

Seems clearer, but there's still some wiggle room.

I used to be afew. I'm still not many.
