Corbyn: I’d vote to stay in EU again
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.”
