  • Eyeing No.10 Jeremy Corbyn

Corbyn told the 1,500-strong audience that United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May's draft Brexit deal, which was announced last week, is a "blindfold Brexit" and will "leave the country in an indefinite halfway house without a real say over our future".

Speaking to business leaders at the CBI's annual conference, which will also be addressed by the prime minister, Corbyn will claim May's deal, published last week, would "leave the country in an indefinite halfway house without a real say over our future".

The Labour leader will argue that Brexit "should be the catalyst to invest in our regions and infrastructure, bringing good jobs and real control to local communities and people".

This is the precise moment that the leader of the opposition has chosen to say that, if there were a second referendum, he does not know how he would vote.

But he may have softened his stance since then as he could not rule out a second vote during an appearance on the Sky News programme "Ridge on Sunday".

He has clashed with his shadow Brexit secretary Keir Starmer who has said "all options must be on the table", including a second referendum with an option to remain in the EU.

Le communiqué du président américain commence par ce sujet, l'Iran étant qualifié de "principal soutien mondial du terrorisme". Le ministre saoudien des Affaires étrangères Adel al Djoubeïr a rejeté "entièrement" ces conclusions.

Corbyn, on which way he would vote in such a referendum, said: "I don't know how I am going to vote, what the options would be at that time".

He will stress the need for workers' rights and environmental standards to be protected to prevent a "race to the bottom".

He called for "a strong single market relationship" and a "guarantee that our country doesn't fall behind the European Union in workers' rights, or protections for consumers and the environment".

Mr Corbyn said Labour "couldn't stop" Brexit because it does not have enough seats in Parliament.

But if one were to take place, he does not know how he would vote.

Speaking to Sky News, Corbyn said his party would vote against the draft withdrawal agreement because it failed to meet Labour's six tests, one of which is that it must guarantee the same benefits as current European Union membership.
