May right on ECJ but wrong on jobs – Jo Swinson

by Steve Beasant on 10 October, 2017

Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Jo Swinson MP said:

“Theresa May’s decision to acknowledge the European Court of Justice’s jurisdiction during the transition period is welcome. This is common sense, but it does show Conservative divisions – the Foreign Secretary has previously listed this as one of his red lines.

“With six months of negotiations already gone, the cabinet is still in open revolt. The upshot is the government has been unable to draw up a detailed plan to protect jobs and living standards from a hard Brexit.

“If ministers continue to advocate tearing up Britain’s membership of the single market and customs union, they have a duty to come clean on what will take their place.”
