‘Your positions are UNTENABLE’ Andrew Neil SAVAGES senior Labour MP over Brexit plans
“Your positions are untenable!”
Ms Long-Bailey hit back: “That’s the whole point of negotiations. Not to be untenable, but to negotiate the position.”
She said Labour’s goal is to “maintain the benefits we currently have as part of the customs union and the single market”.
“The machinery we use to do that, whether it’s through outside agreements or negotiating some form of amendment settlement as part of membership, that’s a moot point quite frankly. But we need to make sure that we have the same benefits,” The Labour MP concluded.
Last week, Jeremy Corbyn, Diane Abbott and shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer travelled to Brussels to meet with the European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.
