‘It’s confusing’ Awkward moment Kier Starmer admits he’s clueless on Labour’s Brexit plan
The Labour MP was then cut off by the Sky News host who insisted he answered the question regarding Labour’s Brexit policy.
He said: “But Sir Kier, what’s Labour’s position, that’s the Conservatives position, what’s Labour’s?
“What is your official cross-party position?”
Mr Starmer claimed that Labour Party position was to “retain the benefits of the customs union and the single market”.
He added: “Of course that is the Conservative position but these negotiations are really really important, we do need to focus on that.
“Our position is concerned we are vert clear, set out in our manifesto that we want to retain the benefits of the customs union and the single market, that’s because we are putting jobs and the economy first.
“What that means is that we have focused on outcomes and not models, if you go into negotiations, you go in asking what it is you want to achieve and asking the other side what it is that you want to achieve.
