in the Labour party that Theresa May is just trying to win time after the disastrous defeat of the week, when her Brexit-the agreement was voted down by a historically large margin.
That suspicion just became stronger on Thursday, when a spokesman for May said that the government goes into talks with an open mind, but that it is out of the question to remain in the EU customs union, since it would make it impossible to conclude new trade agreements.
– This just goes to show that the prime minister's invitation to the call was a scam, " says Corbyn.
a customs union with the EU after Brexit – but even Corbyn would prefer that the country should be able to conclude new trade agreements on their own. It would, however, require some type of exception for the british, and likely to be tough negotiations with Brussels.

Harris is 23 years old and belong to the left wing of the party. But, like the mayor of London Sadiq Khan, he wants to now that the party is pushing the issue of a new referendum, so that there is at least a chance to stop the EU-exit.
" I'd like to see Jeremy Corbyn becomes prime minister. But I think that it would be dangerous for us to come to power in the context of an EU exit, it would strike hard against the economy and make it impossible to govern the country. A new referendum is the best way to get us out of this disastrous situation, " says Harris.
