Jeremy Corbyn response to Theresa May’s Brexit speech

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, responding to Theresa May’s Brexit speech, said:

“The Prime Minister’s proposal tonight seems to be largely a rehash of the government’s position in the cross party talks that failed to reach a compromise last week.

“On key elements – customs, market alignment and environmental protections – what the Prime Minister calls her new Brexit deal is effectively a repackaging of the same old bad deal, rejected three times by parliament.

“We will of course look seriously at the details of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill when it is published. But we won’t back a repackaged version of the same old deal – and it’s clear that this weak and disintegrating government is unable deliver on its own commitments.”
