Corbyn Urges Labour Party Members to Reject New Brexit Deal

HeadlineOct 18, 2019

British lawmakers are scheduled to vote Saturday on a new Brexit deal reached between British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the European Union. Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn said the Labour Party cannot support the Brexit deal.

Jeremy Corbyn: “This is a day when the prime minister seems to have made a deal with the European Union which doesn’t give us the complete freedom of movement between Britain and Northern Ireland, because it creates a customs union border down the Irish Sea. And secondly, it does nothing to deal with all the concerns that we’ve raised during Theresa May’s premiership and his about a race to the bottom in rights and protections, and we believe the deal he’s proposed is heading Britain in the direction of a deregulated society with the sell-off of national assets to American corporations.”
