So what’s wrong with Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal?

For any remotely left-wing person, it’s worse than Theresa May’s deal

THREAD … (but here's 130 billion reasons for a start)
The revised Political Declaration explicitly rules out a new Customs Union and a close future relationship with the Single Market – a key demand of businesses and unions to safeguard trade, investment, jobs and industry.
Any commitment to, or mention of, regulatory alignment has been stripped out.

This is a Charter for ripping up workers’ rights, environmental protections, consumer and food safety standards ...
As TUC General Secretary @francesogrady said, it will “sell workers’ rights down the river”.
@FrancesOGrady And if you want it from the horse’s mouth – Michael Gove couldn’t give those assurances to the union leader who represents Government’s own staff
@FrancesOGrady That’s why, when there was only a rough outline of it two weeks ago, @jeremycorbyn was right to say:

"No Labour MP could support such a reckless deal that would be used as springboard to attack rights and standards in this country."
