    Tom Watson: I may not be deputy PM… and we shouldn’t rule out fresh Brexit vote

    Tom Watson has cast doubt on whether he will ever become deputy prime minister as he appeared to leave the door open to a second EU referendum. Labour’s deputy leader said he had “no idea” if Jeremy Corbyn would appoint him as number two if the veteran socialist makes it into Downing Street and suggested the role could be handed to Emily Thornberry. Watson also declined to reject the prospect of Labour offering a second referendum when he told the […]
