Jeremy Corbyn the Leader of British Labour Opposition does not Support Brexit
Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the British opposition Labor, does not support the draft agreement on the Brexit. He told Prime Minister Theresa May, who wants to guide the agreement through parliament. May returns to Brussels this week for “crucial negotiations”.
The British Prime Minister reached a draft agreement with Brussels on the Brexit on Wednesday evening. Several members from her government, however, stepped out of dissatisfaction with the agreement. In the meantime, May is sticking to the design agreement.
According to her, the agreement on the British departure from the European Union is “in the national interest” and remains faithful to the wishes of the voters who voted in favour of the Brexit in June 2016.
May said that the next seven days would be “crucial”. “There are still negotiations going on, and nothing has been agreed until there is an agreement on everything”, it sounded in an interview with Sky News. The Prime Minister meets Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker this week.
Labor has meanwhile no intention to support the draft agreement on the Brexit. Opposition party leader Jeremy Corbyn said his party would vote against the agreement if it were presented in the British Parliament in December. Corbyn called May to return to Brussels to renegotiate the agreement.
Labor also believes that a second referendum on the Brexit, an idea that has gained ground over the past few months, is “an option for the future, but not for today”. May excludes a second referendum categorical.
