So how you can call them a fence sitting party, I really don't know.
Labour have offered the membership two policies.

1. If a Tory deal is struck that is bad for jobs etc, they will vote against it. The same for a Tory no deal. Call for refendum and campaign for remain.

and

2. If Labour wins a general election, then ignore the above totally. They will negotiate a replacement Labour deal with the EU and go with that

so

If there is a Labour government under Corbyn, we will leave the EU, and that is quite clear. They are still a Brexit party, and it is nonsense to suggest that they would campaign against their own negotiated deal if it was put to the people in a referendum.
