WE ARE told that Corbyn’s hard left Labour Party are in favour of a soft Brexit, and want to stay in the EU customs union, yet on December 20, 2017, an amendment put forward by Labour MP Chris Lesley seeking to keep the UK in the customs union was not supported by Corbyn, who instructed his MPs to abstain.

65 labour MPs did rebel against their leader and supported the amendment, however, the amendment was defeated.  

Corbyn’s lack of support will surprise no one, as he has spent the last 35 years opposing, and voting against the EU.

The reality is Corbyn leads a divided Labour Party that is desperately trying to face both ways at the same time, while doing all it can to support the government through the Brexit process.

Corbyn can fool some of the people some of the time, but cannot fool all of the people all of the time.  Labour has been rumbled.
