Jeremy Corbyn has clearly outlined his position on Brexit, saying that he will personally remain neutral in any future referendum over the country’s relationship with the EU.
Writing in this morning’s Guardian, he says the party’s first goal will be to prevent a no deal exit and then to call for a general election.
If Labour won that election they would renegotiate a deal with Europe which would include remaining within a customs union and would then put that deal to the British public in a referendum which would include the option to remain in the EU.
“A Labour government would secure a sensible deal based on the terms we have long advocated, including a new customs union with the EU; a close single market relationship; and guarantees of workers’ rights and environmental protections,” he said. “We would then put that to a public vote alongside remain. I pledge to carry out whatever the people decide, as a Labour prime minister.”
