Jeremy Corbyn Confirms Labour will Vote to Stay in the EU


Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Opposition, has today again confirmed that the Labour Party will support the UK’s continued membership of the EU. In an article for the Guardian he though criticised the Prime Minister’s negotiation strategy.

Corbyn wrote:

“Labour will campaign for Britain to stay in Europe in the referendum that the prime minister has called for June, regardless of Cameron’s overblown tinkering. That’s not because we don’t think the EU needs reform – far from it”.

He added:

“He should have been talking to other European leaders about action to save our steel industry; about how to stop the spread of low pay and insecure jobs, and end the undercutting of wage rates and industry-wide agreements through the exploitation of migrant workers. He should have been focused on the scandal of the refugee camps in Calais and Dunkirk and how to deal with Europe’s migration crisis in an equitable way”.
