Brexit and Labour

There is a lot of misleading information about Labour's position on Brexit.  What is not misleading is Daniel Zeichner's stance - Daniel is firmly opposed to anything that involves Brexit, and has already proved this by his public stance and by his opposition in Parliament.

Jeremy's is often misrepresented and many people argue that his position of being 70% in favour of staying in was luke warm.  Since the referendum Jeremy has though followed the majority decision to leave.  For many people this has been a source of discontent, but for others his stance has been in line with the wishes of the people of the UK.  

However as Article 50 has moved through Parliament Jeremy has toughened Labour's stance, saying:

"From today, Labour's focus is on making sure this Tory Government guarantees the rights and protections we value most. As I said earlier, we cannot allow Britain to become a low-pay tax haven that only works for a few.

I will fight for real protection for the economy and the same benefits currently enjoyed within the single market. The UK needs to retain a strong relationship with our international partners, because important issues like climate change and cross-border crime cannot be tackled by one country in isolation."

Watch and share the video, calling on the Government to protect jobs, and rights for workers in every part of the UK.

"I campaigned alongside many of you to remain in the EU, and the triggering of Article 50 is not the outcome Labour fought for last summer. But together, we can challenge Tory plans at every stage of this process. We must ensure that jobs, living standards and your rights at work are protected."
