It was a reshuffle already mired in confusion and controversy – with even Sir Keir Starmer’s deputy left in the dark.

Now the Labour leader has been accused of heading up a ‘hardcore’ Remain frontbench team after promoting prominent pro-Europeans.

One of his new top team even called on the country to ‘stop this madness’ and branded Brexit a ‘nightmare’ following the vote in 2016.

A Tory source said: ‘With this hardcore Remain Shadow Cabinet, it would be no surprise to see Labour calling for a second referendum again.

‘It seems the only one of his ten leadership pledges Starmer will actually keep to is campaigning for free movement with the EU.’
