Jeremy Corbyn faces down critics over European Union single market stance

Brexit news – Jeremy Corbyn and Robert Peston

"We urge the leadership of a fifth opposition party, Labour, join us so we can change course from the risky Brexit being pursued by the Conservatives".

Mr Corbyn also said today that there would "have to be a customs union with the EU obviously" but again insisted that Britain can not be a part of the EU's Single Market without being a member of the EU. So I don't quite understand why she [Nicola Sturgeon] would keep saying join the Single Market, when leaving the European Union means you leave the Single Market.

But when asked about Labour's stance could change in the future Mr Corbyn failed to deliver a clear response.

"The goal of the Withdrawal Bill is to provide a functioning statute book on the day we leave the European Union, not to pursue policy choices like this".

He made clear his disapproval of EU state aid rules and noted that the United Kingdom has markedly different type of economy from small non-EU countries such as Norway, which access the single market via membership of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA).

He said he hated the term "second referendum".

"In either case, if 90% of the population was now saying we should stay in the European Union and we must not leave, then that would be a challenge that would be there for all of us who are democrats".

"At the moment... We proceed in good faith".

Jeremy Corbyn has said Labour does not support calls for a second Brexit vote amid talk of another referendum spurred by Ukip's former leader Nigel Farage.

The industrial products company reported $0.63 EPS for the quarter, beating the Zacks' consensus estimate of $0.61 by $0.02. A number of other hedge funds and other institutional investors have also added to or reduced their stakes in the business.

In an interview with The Observer today, the former Ukip leader said he was anxious Brexiteers could "lose the historic victory" they won in 2016 as "The Remain side are making all the running".

Among Labour voters 64% are in favour of a second referendum with 31% against.

Labour's Brexit policy is now the single biggest barrier, to Britain remaining in the European Union single market, the Ilford North MP Wes Streeting will claim on Saturday.

And she admitted that it was a "deep balancing act" to please both Labour voters who backed Brexit, and Labour members who want to stay in the EU.

Deputy Tory party chairman James Cleverly said the comments showed that Labour was trying to frustrate Brexit.

The Labour leader insisted that continuing the trade arrangement was dependent on being in the EU.

If the Labour party announced tomorrow that we would keep Britain in the single market and customs union, it would be a game-changing moment in British politics.

The SNP, Liberal Democrats, Plaid Cymru and the Greens will collectively back an amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill this week.
