Despite losing voters to the Liberal...>

GILT SUMMARY: Despite losing voters to the Liberal Democrats and Brexit Party as
the recent European elections, Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn has resisted calls to
commit to a second referendum, which he has stated is "some way off". 
- Former Conservative leader Iain Duncan Smith has argued that the Conservative
leadership contest rules should be re-written to avoid "chaos". Currently a
candidate requires only 2 nominations from Tory MPs, which so far has led 11
candidates to declare.

Q2 (covering July-Sep).
