May must reveal Brexit plan so I can agree with it, says Corbyn

10-01-17

JEREMY Corbyn has demanded that the prime minister reveal details of her Brexit plan so he can offer no opposition. 

The Labour leader has promised to take the fight to the government over its Brexit secrecy until a full plan is published that he will then more-or-less support. 

He continued: “Theresa May cannot keep the British people and Parliament in the dark about her negotiating position, which I suspect is a very sensible one I’ll happily go along with. 

“We will tirelessly push for clarity and a Brexit which is the best possible deal for the British people, which come to think of it is exactly what she says. 

“I will take the government to task about some of their emphasis and phrasing, but essentially if we’re leaving the EU it’s all good except minor quibbles. 

“Because, and this I think is important, everyone voted for the Conservatives and everyone voted for Brexit so if I agree with them everyone will vote for me.” 

Theresa May said: “We’ve been trying to come up with something they won’t agree with, just to differentiate our brand. Impossible so far.”
