Labour is likely to vote against any Brexit deal proposed by the Government, according to a senior Labour frontbencher.
Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry said that she “can’t see” the government agreeing to a deal with the EU that meets Labour’s six key tests. The six tests include having the “exact same benefits” that the UK currently has as a member of the customs union and the single market.
Ms Thornberry, speaking to the Financial Times, also said that Labour would not back a no-deal Brexit.
“I can’t see them coming back with a deal that is going to meet our six tests and I can’t see them coming back with a deal that will unite the Tory party”
“We’re either going to have a general election in the autumn or we’re going to have it in the spring.”
Ministers are hoping that a deal can be reached by October, or no later than December – do you think a deal can be reached? Comment your thoughts.
“We’re either going to have a general #election in the autumn or we’re going to have it in the spring.” – The words of Shadow Foreign Secretary, Emily Thornberry.
