Wythenshawe’s Labour MP has distanced himself from calls for a second Brexit referendum.
A report in today’s Guardian said 10 members of the shadow cabinet have threatened to quit their front bench jobs unless the Labour leadership backs a “People’s Vote”.
But it appears, if the report is true, Wythenshawe’s Mike Kane – Labour’s shadow schools minister – will not be one of them.
Mr Kane said a second Brexit vote would be a “poor option”, but he wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a vote happening.
Speaking to the Wythenshawe Reporter, Mr Kane cast doubt on the accuracy of the Guardian story.
He said: “A second referendum is a poor option because it would mean Parliament had failed to to its job. But it may come to it. I would much prefer a general election.”
