There is no majority for the Prime Minister’s course of action – Corbyn

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, commenting on the government losing the latest Brexit vote, said:

“Two weeks ago, the Prime Minister told Parliament that her new approach could ‘secure a substantial and sustainable majority’ in Parliament.

“However, tonight’s vote has proved that there is no majority for the Prime Minister’s course of action.

“This can’t go on. The government can’t keep ignoring Parliament or ploughing on towards the 29th March without a coherent plan.

“The Prime Minister needs to admit that her strategy has failed, shift her red lines and come back with a proposal that can truly command majority support in Parliament.”
