Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said that Brexit cannot be stopped.
Mr Corbyn also indicated he felt sorry for British prime minister Theresa May over the EU withdrawal negotiations but said she was following the wrong path. Asked by German magazine Der Spiegel if he would stop Brexit if he could, the Labour leader said: “We can’t stop it.
“The referendum took place. Article 50 has been triggered. What we can do is recognise the reasons why people voted Leave.” The comments will come as a blow for Labour MPs pressing for a new referendum on EU withdrawal.
Meanwhile, Labour MPs have criticised Jeremy Corbyn after he announced “we can’t stop” Brexit just two months after he declared in his conference speech that “all options are on the table”.
