Bedtime reading for Jeremy Corbyn

by Steve Beasant on 11 January, 2018

Sadiq Khan’s report on Brexit should make excellent bedtime reading for Jeremy Corbyn – and hopefully, change his mind on the single market & customs union.

The following article was written by Lib Dem MP Tom Brake and published today on the Lib Dem Website.

The flags of EU countries flying.

Brexit could cause the UK to lose half a million jobs and nearly £50bn in investment by 2030, a report commissioned by Sadiq Khan has found.

The London Mayor said the government should negotiate to stay in the single market and customs union.

It comes days after Jeremy Corbyn refused to attend a cross-party summit on keeping the UK in the single market.

This bombshell report should make obligatory bedtime reading for Jeremy Corbyn.

Half a million jobs could be a lost as a result of the hard Brexit that Corbyn has ordered his MPs to vote for.

The Labour leadership must listen to the Mayor of London and back efforts to minimise the impact of Brexit by keeping Britain in the Single Market and Customs Union.

It’s also crucial that the option of an exit from Brexit is kept on the table through a vote on the deal.

We can protect jobs and living standards against a botched Conservative Brexit, but only if Labour comes off the fence.
