Jeremy Corbyn 'betraying Brexit voters' with promise of strong relationship with single market.

A vote on the customs union could prove tricky for the Government (PA)
Jeremy Corbyn has set out Labour’s position on Brexit, committing the party to pushing for a “new, strong relationship” with the single market

In a speech in Coventry, the Labour leader said the UK must have its own version of the deals other neighbouring countries such as Norway and Turkey have to access the internal trading bloc.

And though Mr Corbyn drew some – guarded – praise from business leaders, Tory Brexiteers were quick to attack him, with Boris Jonson branding the speech ‘cynical and deluded CBI’.

Boris Johnson said Britain would be reduced to a “colony” of Brussels by Labour’s plans for a post-Brexit customs union with the EU.

The Foreign Secretary accused Mr Corbyn of raising a “white flag” on Brexit in order to try to defeat the Government in an upcoming Commons vote on remaining in a customs union.
