    Bring Corbyn into brexit negotiations.

    Bring Corbyn into Brexit negotiations, his policy is the honor the Brexit vote, at will would get sanctity injected into the procedure.

    If Guy Verhofstadt, the European parliament’s lead Brexit negotiator, had his way, the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn would be in Brussels today. According to the Independent, which has interviewed Verhofstadt, he thinks Corbyn should be part of the British negotiating team. Here’s an extract.

    “Brexit is about the whole of the UK. It will affect all UK citizens, and EU citizens in the UK. This is much bigger than one political party’s internal divisions or short term electoral positioning. It’s about people’s lives,” Mr Verhofstadt told The Independent.

    “I believe the negotiations should involve more people with more diverse opinions. Some recognition that the election result was, in part, a rejection of Theresa May’s vision for a hard Brexit would be welcome.”
    Asked if that meant Ms May should include other party leaders in her negotiating team, a spokesman for Mr Verhofstadt said: “Absolutely.”

    When Europhiles talk about using somebody else to honour the Brexit vote then the people should be worried.

    LOL Why shouldn't we all rock up in Brussels and have a hand in the day to day discussions? We all have separate concerns and hopes for Brexit. Perhaps we could have a referendum each week to agree, or not, each step in the discussions, while those under 30 can have 2 votes. While we're at it we could disband Parliament and the House of Lords altogether because the people have the control. Why keep a dog and bark yourself?

    We voted for the current Parliament and the Conservatives gained most seats and votes and have managed to create a Government. Or is that irrelevant now?
    By their deeds will you know them! xx

    Not sure, but it seems Remainers think Corbyn would help get an easier Brexit. Can't think why — Corbyn has always appeared to follow Tony Benn's antagonism to the UK being a member of the Common Market and its subsequent evolved forms.

    Besides, is the UK suggesting who the EU should have in its negotiating team...

    ALL policies adopted by UK governments affect ALL of the people....and inevitably, many will have differing views on a particular policy's benefits or otherwise, so it is ridiculous to treat Brexit as a special case. However, the policy of Brexit has been put to the electorate.... and leaving the EU was the clear result. Subsequent trading arrangements have to be agreed....but leaving the EU has already been decided. Membership of the Single Market therefore has to be terminated, and remaining in the Customs Unions would be rather stupid, as it removes the obvious advantage to the UK of enabling it to again act as a sovereign country, and arrange it's own trade deals with it's specific interests in mind.
    Whatever the UK wish for however, clearly has to be agreed with the EU, and it is possible that a mutually satisfactory trade deal cannot be agreed.
    That would be disappointing - but far preferable to retaining the current arrangement, and after all, would merely place the EU on the same trading relationship with around 75% of the rest of the world......in other words - hardly a disastrous situation!!

    Part of me says that Brexit is "doing fine" in the hands of the current bunch of crackpots. Left to them, it will become clear to everyone what a dog's dinner the whole thing is turning out to be that much sooner. As soon as Brexit becomes something that is perceived as being imposed on the people by an unpopular government, they won't want it any more.

    Could we not send Diane Abbott over to join the negotiating team? She could take every figure that the EU comes up with, add on a couple of bagels and once the Europeans come to collect, scream that they are sexist, racist and above all, fattist. After a morning of Plumpton's antics the EU would be delighted to come to terms with the UK, if only to shut Diane up.

    Yes Verhofstadt is right hes just got the wrong bloke . As we are leaving in part to protect our democracy should it not be the people democratically elected to represent us in Europe that should be at the table . That would be our MEP's many of course who belong to a party that has had our withdrawal planned for years . Who better to sit across the table from the Belgian than our own Nigel Farage .

    There would certainly be no talk of some sort of associated membership ,handing over a divorce settlement or the continuing free movement . The last thing we need is someone who agrees with the Eu fanatic Guy Verhofstadt
