Labour MP Clive Lewis talks to Richard Porritt for the New European podcast


MP Clive Lewis has told The New European podcast he believes a Hard Brexit will now be avoided due to Labour's strong general election performance.

He said the cliff-edge Brexit will now be stopped and the grassroots must “organise” to halt Brexit altogether.

The former front bencher - who quit over Jeremy Corbyn’s three-line whip on Article 50 - also spoke to the pod about Labour’s Brexit policy, Corbyn and why Remainers should “shut up” about a second referendum.

Plus the podcast contains all the usual news and analysis from Steve Anglesey and Geri Scott.
