Corbyn starts up interview by saying “No” Labour wont be supporting the Withdrawal Agreement “We’ll vote against this deal”... says it is because the customs union is not permanent...
Corbyn says Government has embraced without any question EU rules on state aid, but not its rules on workers’ rights.
“Where’s the guarantee on environmental protections? Where’s the guarantee on workers’ rights?” Says Corbyn. Sophy points out the level playing field.
Sophy asks if Corbyn has read the 500 pages - he says not every last page
Corbyn says “We can’t stop Brexit” meant “Labour can’t stop Brexit” on its own. So it is consistent with “Brexit can be stopped” from Starmer, because it could collectively be stopped, just not by Labour alone. #ridge
Corbyn leaning into the possibility of a second Referendum the most I have ever heard him: “I think its an option for the future but not an option for today”
Corbyn denies that it is unlikely we’ll get a General Election... “The country needs stability and an opportunity to have a say on who it wants to conduct negotiations and who it wants to deal with chronic social conditions - have you seen UN report on poverty?” #ridge
“There are at jobs at risk on both sides of the Channel here - we need a serious sensible agreement, and I believe the Labour options are the serious ones” says Corbyn. #Ridge
“Whats been agreed so far between the Government and the EU is not acceptable to the British parliament and I suspect the British people, and it hasn’t been tested in the European Parliament” says Corbyn. #Ridge
Corbyn asked by Sophy about his Eurosceptic journey:
“I’ve always been in favour of a social Europe, better workers rights, what I supposed was the free market economics in Europe, state aid rules, and competition rules in relation to postal and rail services” #ridge
Corbyn: “I have discussed with Michel Barnier the communities that have seen no investment since the end of the miners strike, noting from new infrastructure - communities are likely to be against the institutions that have failed to deliver it for them” #ridge
Corbyn tells Sophy he had a short meeting on parliamentary procedure with the PM over a glass of water.
Asked by Sophy if he has any sympathy for PM given he had to face MPs’ revolt himself: “Politics is full of thrills and spills, I do understand what people have to go through, but do also I understand the responsibility of Govt for people are struggling with jobs, poverty” #ridge
