No-deal Brexit better than current European Union offer

Adjust Comment Print

On Brexit and the prospects of a General Election, Corbyn has said that Labour will vote against Theresa May's Chequers proposal if it forms the backbone of any final deal with the EU's 27 member states, and claimed that the prime minister would be forced to call a GE if she could not get it through parliament.

Her spokesman said later that May was specifically referring to the type of deal the European Union is now offering on future trade, which Britain believes will split England, Wales and Scotland from Northern Ireland by insisting Northern Ireland adhere to different customs rules.

"And it is inconceivable that we should crash out of Europe with no deal - that would be a national disaster".

And this was borne out by the barnstorming conference speech delivered by Sir Keir Starmer, the party's Shadow Brexit Secretary.

Days after European Union leaders roundly rejected her plans for future trading relations with the United Kingdom, the Prime Minister will insist she is "confident" a deal can be reached.

"Failing that, all options are on the table".

At their annual meeting in Liverpool today, Labour Party leaders were spoiling for an election they say they can win.

Delegates at the Labour Party conference in the northwestern English city of Liverpool will debate a motion Tuesday saying that if Parliament rejects the government's Brexit deal, "Labour must support all options remaining on the table, including campaigning for a public vote".

British opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will promise on Wednesday to "kickstart a green jobs revolution" by fostering investment in housing, wind and solar energy to bring jobs "to communities held back for too long".

The Prime Minister moved to scotch suggestions of a November poll after reports that Downing Street officials had war-gamed a winter vote.

Corbyn praised both men in his speech, and indicated that getting the "best deal" for Brexit was Labour's priority.

It comes as Labour officially announced that it was not ruling out a vote that could see Britain overturn Brexit and stay in the EU.

And as if all of this wasn't bad enough, May's aides have reportedly begun contingency planning for a snap election in November to save the Brexit talks (and May's job) after European Union leaders rejected her Chequers agreement.

"We, the Labour Party, are going to vote down a bad deal or we're going to vote down no deal because that is not good for our country nor is it what people voted for".

The divisions cut across party loyalties, with Labour's traditional leftwing working-class constituencies voting largely to leave.

He said: "Hundreds of people write to me about it every week, people like Richard who says: "My wife was diagnosed with progressive multiple sclerosis 20 years ago".

The so-called Brexiteers have urged her to take the European Union up on its offer of a more limited trade deal based on the one Canada has.

"Of course, to a significant extent, this also depends on what Britain really wants - the discussion isn't so clear here", she said.
