1) Corbyn - unable & unwilling to lead
With 88 days to go & with 2 public defeats on the Government Corbyn had a chance today to show leadership & set the tone for Labour on #Brexit

Essentially 30 minutes filming an empty chair would have been just as useful
2) there were some minor crumbs that some will cling to but nothing knew was said, nothing meaningful was promised, and the entire speech was an exercise in dishonesty & misdirection

It's yet another shameful day for Labour Leadership & another let down for its voters
3) Corbyn again reiterated the nonsense that he would push for a CU where the UK would have a "say" on trade deals. He must know by now this is unachievable.

He calls for a "close relationship with the SM" which we've known for years is a meaningless phrase
4) in this context, how can any leader with any integrity or decency call for a "GE to break the deadlock" when they know that in that GE they'd be asking for votes for a #Brexit deal they *know* is unrealistic & unachievable?

"A Labour government would paint the moon purple"
5) Corbyn couldn't even commit to calling a Vote of No Confidence following the May deal being voted down. Weasle words on "we'll call for it when we think it might work" - so we may not call it at all
6) a cynical, evasive, meaningless repeat of Labour Leadership position - a call for a GE that will solve nothing on #Brexit in any possible scenario and which is a selfish & ridiculous indulgence when the country is in crisis

Offering a Brexit deal that he knows has no chance
7) "playing politics with people's lives"
Indeed - time after time May is weakened, time after time Corbyn avoids the opportunity to capitalise on that weakness because to do so would mean taking a meaningful position

Cowardice & self serving opportunism from the Labour Leader
