Cor­byn: I’d vote to stay in EU again

Daily Record - - NEWS -

LABOUR leader Jeremy Cor­byn has said he would vote Re­main again as he at­tacked “shock­ing” progress over Brexit talks.

He hit out at Brexit Sec­re­tary David Davis’s rose-tinted view of how the talks were go­ing and warned of the dan­ger of hav­ing no deal in place on Brexit day.

Asked if he would vote Re­main if the ref­er­en­dum was held to­mor­row, he said: “There isn’t go­ing to be a ref­er­en­dum, so it’s a hy­po­thet­i­cal ques­tion but yes, I voted Re­main be­cause I thought the best op­tion was to re­main.

“I haven’t changed my mind on that.”

Cor­byn hit out at the Tories’ han­dling of the talks process, say­ing: “It is quite shock­ing.

“David Davis says it’s gone well and Michel Barnier says it isn’t. They can’t both be right.

“The dan­ger is we will get to March 2019 with no deal, we fall out of the EU, we go on to World Trade Or­gan­i­sa­tion rules and there will be threats to a lot of jobs all across Bri­tain.”
