The wish list essentially keeps the UK deeply locked into Brussels. Instead of a radical agenda for change, Labour want to tie the UK into the EU indefinitely and kill off any prospect for a fully independent trade policy.

The demands include:

  • ‘Permanent and comprehensive’ UK-wide Customs Union.
  • Close alignment with the Single Market.
  • ‘Dynamic alignment’ on rights and protections.
  • Commitments to on future UK participation in EU agencies.
  • Agreements on future security arrangements including the European Arrest Warrant.

This comes after Labour’s Shadow Brexit Secretary, Sir Keir Starmer, refused to rule out ‘free movement of workers’ under a Corbyn government. Open borders by the back door.

Rather than seeing as a huge opportunity to become independent and self-governing, Labour are desperately trying to cling on to the EU whilst one of their Shadow Ministers has even called for a second referendum. What a shambles.
