Love Socialism Hate Brexit was set up by Left Wing Labour MPs who support Jeremy Corbyn's leadership but believe that Labour should campaign for another EU referendum and to stop Brexit by campaigning to stay in the European Union.

Shadow Minister for the Treasury Mr Lewis will be joined for the event by York Central MP, Shadow Rail minister and UEA Graduate Rachel Maskell. York, like Norwich, voted remain in the 2016 referendum but both are surrounded by areas that voted leave.

Lewis said that Love Socialism Hate Brexit emerged in frustration at the reluctance of the Labour leadership to adopt a pro–remain position.

There was also a feeling that the mainstream People's Vote campaign arguing for another referendum had elements hostile to Jeremy Corbyn.
