Mr Corbyn said: "Labour MPs voted more than three to one in favour of triggering Article 50. Now the battle of the week ahead is to shape Brexit negotiations to put jobs, living standards and accountability centre stage.
"Labour's amendments are the real agenda. The challenge is for MPs of all parties to ensure the best deal for Britain"
It should all be moot anyway shouldn't it?
What was it Liam Fox said "The agreement we will have to do with the European Union should be one of the easiest in human history."
So, let's fast forward and let's suppose Boris does get the EU to remove the backstop with everything else already agreed - Would Comrade Corbyn still advocate opposition to an amended agreement and stick with his "Not getting out of jail" customs union holding us in forever and a day as his preferred policy ! If he did, he would be most definitely soundly beaten and left to look the fool that he already is ! The polls suggest he is sliding and most definitely in Wales !
All the cry babies about getting rid of NO Deal before negotiating has already led us into a very bad deal and which was all about sabotaging us in trying to leave. No Poker Player would stack their Ace Card !
It beggars belief why there is no support of having a strong hand to negotiate as the EU regard us as a bunch of weaklings that May and her remainer "we don't really want to leave the EU type cabinet/civil service" portrayed and took absolute advantage (that's why Davies and Raab resigned !). It's the Commons/Lords that have sold us all out to pursue their own interests (I bet most have vested interests as to why they want to stay in - quite a few I bet are on nice juicy earners from unknown EU sources).
The Strong Hand that Boris is now displaying was never ever Rocket Science to get a better deal and all parties should get behind and support this to get the country the best deal and leave Party Politics till after it is done ! If not I'm afraid the country will be heading into dark years of total chaos and stagnation in trying to move forward (we've already lost 3 years of growth potential).
This has to be the most important 3 months of our UK lives and not supporting Boris will be like casting the ship from shore with no rudder and drifting aimlessly for the next few years at a huge business cost and potentially kicking off civil unrest !
So what does a NO Deal entail in a Nutshell ? Short Term Pain yes, but Long Term Gain ! and I bet we will be wondering what the fuss was all about when we start trading massively with the rest of the world in time. The EU Cartel is frightened we will show them up and it could lead to their break up having insufficient money when we leave and take our huge contribution with us.
