Corbyn: May's deal act of national self-harm

He said that he was not sure if the UK would be allowed to launch a new trade deal with the US He said that he was not sure if the UK would be allowed to launch a new trade deal with the US

Mr Corbyn told the Commons: "The Prime Minister may want to try and sell yesterday's summit as a great success, but to borrow a phrase, the reality is "nothing has changed".

She added: "Nothing has been settled in terms of when the debate will take place but I think this is an important moment for our country and it is right that we treat it with the seriousness it deserves". "We'll only get one shot at this", one party strategist said.

In response, Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable demanded to be involved as well, because, as he put it, neither the Conservatives nor Labour had called for a new referendum on the deal.

And she is sending in her trusted lieutenants Cabinet minster David Lidington and chief of staff Gavin Barwell to schmooze Labour MPs at a private briefing tonight.

Mr Corbyn warned that under the deal the United Kingdom would have to "agree to demands on waters and quota shares" to get a future trade deal or extend the transition. The Labour leader has welcomed the prospect of locking horns with May.

"The Prime Minister and leader of the opposition only represent the views of a limited share of the British public on this issue".

But Johnson has not ruled out taking part in any debate with May and Corbyn.

The Greens have also said they must be be included, saying any debate "must be cross-party, featuring a diverse range of voices representing every nation, as well as every stance on this deal and our relationship with the EU".

The Brexit deal agreed by European Union leaders is an "act of national self-harm", Labour opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn told parliament yesterday as Prime Minister Theresa May sought to persuade MPs to back her. "I am willing to stand up and explain why I think it is the best possible deal available for the United Kingdom".

"What is the Prime Minister's Plan B - is it Norway, plus the single market, the customs union, which some of us have been arguing for for over two years?"

She told The Sun: "I am going to be going out and round the country".

Former Brexit secretary David Davis asked why the United Kingdom was not withholding payment of the £39 billion divorce bill until after a trade deal was struck.

"I have a clear deal that I believe is in the interests of the United Kingdom and I think it is right for people to hear what Jeremy Corbyn's views are as those have been a little uncertain recently about exactly where he stands". They can't both be right: "which is it?"

"I would like to see people who do for a living all of the things that are poised to be affected by Brexit - for good or for ill".

Labour MP Yvette Cooper, who chairs the Commons home affairs committee, later warned the deal could result in a "massive security downgrade". "It is just a better free trade deal than Canada", she insisted.

"She used to say that nothing was agreed until everything was agreed, when did she change her mind?"
