UK Labour leader Corbyn says he would stay neutral in a second Brexit referendum

LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Britain's Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Friday he would remain neutral in any second Brexit referendum, so he could credibly carry out the result of the vote and unite the country.

"I will adopt as prime minister, if I am, at the time, a neutral stance so that I can credibly carry out the results of that (referendum)," Corbyn said during a televised question and answer session on BBC TV.
