Jeremy Corbyn statement on EU summit

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, in response to the EU summit, said:

“This is a bad deal for the country. It is the result of a miserable failure of negotiation that leaves us with the worst of all worlds. It gives us less say over our future, and puts jobs and living standards at risk.

“That is why Labour will oppose this deal in parliament. We will work with others to block a no deal outcome, and ensure that Labour’s alternative plan for a sensible deal to bring the country together is on the table.

“That includes a permanent customs union with a UK say, a strong single market deal and guarantees on workers’ rights, consumer and environmental protections.”
