Labour leader @jeremycorbyn delivering #Brexit speech in Wakefield: Let there be no doubt: Theresa May’s deal is a bad deal for our country and Labour will vote against it next week in parliament.
Corbyn: If the govt cannot pass its most important legislation, there must be general election at the earliest opportunity.
Corbyn: If general election cannot be secured, Labour will keep other options on the table, including another #Brexit public vote
Corbyn: Defeat for the Govt on Tuesday would be historic... It would signal failure of Theresa May and Conservative Party
Corbyn: PM's deal is not the only deal possible, it's the deal that reflects the country that Tories want to create... Labour has different sets of priorities and an alternative #Brexit plan
Corbyn: Labour calls for new customs union, a strong single market relationship and guarantee to keep pace with EU rights and standards... Alternative plan would allow making changes needed in the UK while respecting results of vote
Corbyn: Alternative deal Labour proposes is radical, practical, and achievable and has potential to command majority in Parliament, but it is not an end in itself - the task is long overdue transformation of the UK
Labour leader @jeremycorbyn answering questions: Policy on #Brexit during GE would be to negotiate A customs union, and not allowing workers' rights standards to fall behind those of EU.
Corbyn on extension of Article 50: @Keir_Starmer made it clear that an extension is a possibility because there has to be time to negotiate. We have voted against No Deal, the PM's #Brexit deal is not acceptable - there has to be time for negotiation
Corbyn on no confidence vote: The Govt cannot command majority in Commons, we will move motion of no confidence in the Govt at the time of our choosing, when we think it has the best chance of winning.
Corbyn: To accept the PM's #Brexit deal would lock the UK into a process that would not be a good one
