Swinson scathing about Corbyn’s neutral Brexit stance

Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson has branded Jeremy Corbyn a “bystander” on Brexit after his pledge to take a neutral stance in an EU withdrawal referendum if Labour wins power.

Ms Swinson accused Mr Corbyn of “an absence of leadership” on what she said was the biggest issue facing the UK in generations.

During a campaign visit to the Design Museum in west London, Ms Swinson told the PA news agency: “I think it is quite astonishing that Jeremy Corbyn is refusing to say… not even just refusing to say now where he stands on remaining or leaving the European Union, but is basically saying that he is never going to tell people what he thinks about that."
