British opposition leader Corbyn to meet EU on Brexit

28 September, 2018, 18:32 | Author: Trevor Moore
  • David Davis has backed proposals that would break a commitment to Brussels

He told the packed auditorium: "As it stands, Labour will vote against the Chequers plan, or whatever is left of it, and oppose leaving the European Union with no deal".

Content - until now - to oppose the Government for opposition's sake, days of toing and froing appear to have ended in a classic compromise which is also open to numerous interpretations.

Keir Starmer received a prolonged standing ovation at the Labour Party conference on Tuesday after he said Brexit could still be stopped.

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell said Monday that a proposed People's Vote would not have an option on the ballot paper to Remain, saying to do so would not respect the result of the June 2016 referendum.

"He earlier said Mrs May had left the country staring at a choice between no deal or bad deal". Longstanding EU opponents like veteran MP Dennis Skinner were unimpressed.

Referring to Mr Corbyn's speech at the Labour Party conference in Liverpool on Wednesday, Mr Gardiner said: "What Jeremy did today was seizing the initiative, saying to the country, "look, we want to work together in the interest of the country to get a deal, it's not flawless, but we certainly don't, surely for goodness sake, want a "no deal" that will take us over the edge of that cliff".

The Labour party has pledged to "embark on the biggest home building programme in half a century", leader Jeremy Corbyn said yesterday.

In Britain, there is a growing sense of Brexit deja vu.

"Labour, Liberal or Tory, it's clear that if people want Brexit then they will have to vote for UKIP at the next general election".

But her simple gesture sparked a huge debate on social media about whether she broke royal protocol by closing her own auto door. Ah, yes - everyone loves a royal rebel ignoring the rule book. "The work that they did here is just so lovely ".

"Looking at the state of the negotiations, which are frankly chaotic and failing, it looks like she is not going to meet those tests so in those circumstances we will vote against a deal that she brings back", he added.

The Confederation of British Industry said it agreed with much of Mr Corbyn's vision, but said "this will only happen if Labour invites business into the tent".

He warned that as time runs out to get a Brexit deal, "companies are losing patience" and planning to relocate overseas.

Mr Spencer said: "These odds have also shortened dramatically this week because of the pressures on the Prime Minister over Brexit, and with the Labour Party conference increasing their profile".

"We have huge social injustice in our country and there are Conservative solutions to deal with these things".

It comes as the United Kingdom has confirmed that its "settled status" - its term for the residency status that European Union citizens living in the United Kingdom before Brexit would have under the Brexit deal - will be operative even if the United Kingdom leaves with no deal.

The motion reiterates Labour's position on Brexit: it wants full participation in the EU's single market and will reject a "no deal Brexit".

The U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates for the third time this year later on Wednesday, and investors will be looking for clues as to whether the central bank will ramp up the pace of policy tightening following signs of an acceleration in U.S. economic growth.

"I don't know whether Article 50 will have to be extended or not", he said.
