Anna Turley Comment on Johnson’s Brexit deal




Boris Johnson’s deal is a bad one which will cost jobs, harm the economy and leave Britain isolated. It is a worse deal for our country than Theresa May negotiated. It’s not what people voted for three years ago, so only a Public Vote on it will settle the issue.

The Labour Movement for Europe welcomes the decision of the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn to oppose the deal and to support an amendment calling for a referendum.

This is an issue of vital concern to young people. There are two million young voters who didn’t get a say because they weren’t eligible in 2016. A people’s vote is the only way to give justice to these people who will live longest with the consequence of a damaging Brexit.
