Corbyn and Labour membership on collision course over Brexit

  • Economics professor Patrick Minford believes Britain will benefit from a no deal

"Only the Conservatives are working to ensure that when the United Kingdom leaves the EU we take back control of our laws, money and borders - Labour just can't be trusted to deliver on leaving the European Union".

Corbyn repeated his disputed claim that single market membership relies on European Union membership in an interview with Robert Peston on Sunday. "We are not calling for one either", he replied. I understand the views of Labour supporters.

Speaking on Peston on Sunday, he continued: "The single market is dependent on membership of the European Union".

"The goal of the Withdrawal Bill is to provide a functioning statute book on the day we leave the European Union, not to pursue policy choices like this".

Mr Corbyn however appeared to finally settle on whether his party would call on the British Government to stay in the single market, saying Britain can not remain a member of the single market because of its decision to leave the European Union. She suffered a major voter backlash past year against her demand for a second independence referendum.

"At the moment... We proceed in good faith".

Last week former Ukip boss Nigel Farage said he could back a second referendum to shut up Remoaners like Tony Blair. "We are leaving the European Union".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday wished the nation on the festivals of Makar Sakranti, Pongal, Magh Bihu and Uttarayan. Makar Sankranti denotes the transition of the sun into the zodiacal sign of Capricon ('Makara') on its celestial path.


In an interview with The Observer today, the former Ukip leader said he was anxious Brexiteers could "lose the historic victory" they won in 2016 as "The Remain side are making all the running".

Within hours, Mr Farage appeared to row back, insisting he didn't want a second referendum and was merely trying to galvanise Leave campaigners to the inevitably of one. 87% of party members want to stay in the single market, a recent poll showed.

Some MPs were left frustrated at the party's parliamentary meeting earlier this week after Corbyn reportedly ruled out adopting a Brexit policy based on staying in the single market and customs union.

The First Minister called on the Labour leader to get off the fence on the key issue, claiming there would be a Commons majority for staying in the single market if he threw his weight behind the plan.

The comments came after Labour MP Wes Streeting said the party was now the "single biggest barrier" to Britain remaining in the single market.

Lib Dem, SNP, Plaid Cymru and Green Party leaders are tabling the amendment.

If the Labour party announced tomorrow that we would keep Britain in the single market and customs union, it would be a game-changing moment in British politics.
