So I now hear @DavePrentis and the giant Unison union are in fact closer to @tom_watson than @jeremycorbyn on how Labour’s approach to a referendum should be characterised in its EU election manifesto.
In other words, at the emergency NEC meeting on Tuesday, Unison will back a form of words that makes it clear that a confirmatory referendum would be necessary in almost any practical circumstances of a Brexit deal being approved by MPs.
In fact Prentis fears Corbyn misunderstood his position when he expressed it at that meeting with him last Tuesday. So just maybe Corbyn has not yet stitched up a victory for the more equivocal position on a referendum he prefers.
