Jeremy Corbyn is selling 'snake oil' over Brexit, says David Davis

Jeremy Corbyn is selling 'snake oil' over Brexit, says David Davis

"Whether it's our amendments or the cross-bench amendments, crunch time is now coming for the prime minister because the majority of Parliament does not back her approach to a customs union", Labour's Brexit spokesman, Keir Starmer, told BBC TV on Sunday.

"It's the only way to get tariff-free access, it's really important for our manufacturing base, and nobody can answer your question of how you keep your commitment to [having] no hard border in Northern Ireland without a customs union".

"We sat down with those differing views, we set out the issues, we looked at the options and we came to an agreement that we are all happy with".

"Theresa May has ruled this out - the vast majority of those who voted for us previous year did so in the belief that we would do all we can to oppose this".

Mr Fox said the Government wanted to sign new worldwide trade deals during the transition period that could be implemented afterwards.

This kind of transformations might open the door for opposition parties to black a customs union and impose a destructive parliamentary conquer against Prime Minister Theresa May's government.

"Obviously, their position is very close to Labour's position", he told ITV's Peston On Sunday.

"It's a customs union, that's what the CBI are saying now, it's what the various amendments are now all saying - there's going to have to be a new agreement, but will it do the work of the current customs union?"




On Friday, the Taoiseach urged the UK Government to provide "real detail" on its Brexit position, as he arrived at an European Union summit in Brussels. May plans a major speech Friday to provide further details after a series of Cabinet meetings.

"We would also seek to negotiate protections, clarifications or exemptions, where necessary, in relation to privatization and public service competition directives, state aid and procurement rules and the Posted Workers Directive", Corbyn will say. We surrendered power to them to instruct us and they have instructed us.

Tory former leader Iain Duncan Smith warned potential rebels against challenging the Government.

"I say to my colleagues.... just be very careful on this one because you're being invited into a Labour party tactical game which will actually end up in real damage to the United Kingdom", said former leader Iain Duncan Smith told the BBC in a warning to party rebels.

Starmer indicated that Labour would support amendments to a key Brexit bill tabled by rebel Tory MPs Anna Soubry and Ken Clarke which puts customs membership back on the table.

"It's not about propping up the Government, it's about implementing a decision of the people". Without that, talk of a government collapse will only get louder. The idea Anna Soubry is going to lead all these people into the Labour lobby is just fairytales.

The headlines for Jeremy Corbyn's speech on Monday are about his U.K. Labour Party's Brexit policy.
