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."
