Brexit news: Brexiteer blasts Corbyn for refusing to admit Brexit positives | Politics | News


The Labour Party leader is seeking in the House of Commons during an emergency debate on Brexit as ministers prepare for tonight’s crunch vote that could block thew UK leaving with a no deal Brexit. Mr Corbyn said: “I understand there are people from all sides of the house under a great deal of pressure in what is regrettably an extremely volatile political climate. But if you truly trust in what all the analysis shows, including the Government’s own analysis, if you believe in what the experts say, but you understand that a no deal Brexit would be disastrous for this country, then you must act now.

“With that in mind, i want to pay tribute to those showing the political courage to stand up for what they believe in and bring this debate to the house.

“The bullying and threats to ops from their own side is unprecedented

let me offer you words of advice – standing by your principles doesn’t always damage your future prospects.”

But Conservative MP for Basildon and Billericay John Baron warned Mr Corbyn to be “careful with his selection of evidence” over the negative impacts Brexit has had on the UK.

He claimed the “doom and gloom” scenarios made by the likes of the Treasury, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Bank of England have so far been wrong.

Mr Baron replied: “Can I suggest that he is careful with his selection of evidence?

“The Treasury, the IMF and the Bank of England all made predictions of doom and gloom.

“We voted to leave in 2016, and they said there would be economic disaster by December 2016. They were all wrong.

“What has happened since is there has been record employment, record manufacturing output and record investment in the full knowledge that no deal is better than a bad deal.”

Mr Corbyn only offered a short reply, claiming that only “flis in the face” of all the facts that are being regularly published. 

He said: “Ithank the Right Honourable Member for that intervention but the only problem is it flies in the face of all facts published day in, day out.

“The value of the pound is falling. The manufacturing industry is falling.
