Report from Labour source of the referendum discussion at shadow cabinet.

"Corbyn explicitly mentioned Wilson in '75, saying he had been reading his biography over last fortnight [Wilson stood to the side of the referendum he called - allowing Jenkins to lead for staying in...
and Benn for exit]. ]. Looks like Labour will land in a PV/Remain place but allow Lavery to campaign to Leave. John McDonnell said “we look indecisive, we look like we’ve been triangulating, we need to make our position clear.” Barry Gardiner said election results...
were “a failure of leadership” and he now believes in remain and reform. Tom Watson said “we must move swiftly, decisively and with humility...we can change our position at conference but it may be too late by then.” Emily Thornberry said we should be...
'true to our internationalist values and campaign for Remain and Reform'".Looks as though @SeumasMilne and Karie Murphy - who have been resisting Labour's shift to supporting a referendum in all circumstances are at the last being out-manoeuvred.
