Here’s Labour’s new Brexit position as agreed by union leaders today,

note that if Labour wins the election they could negotiate a new Brexit deal and then campaign against it

Labour MP: "There are only so many varieties of fudge the people will swallow."

one pro-Corbyn MP: "Jeremy could wrap himself in the EU flag and sing Ode to Joy and people would still claim he isn't Europhile enough."

the people who say this position is “perfectly clear” in a tut-tut voice have maybe never been on the doorsteps before
