    With the Tories doing the negotiating when they are rent asunder on the subject a massive disaster. (Which looks more likely as time passes.)

    LABOUR's Emily Thornberry was trounced by Andrew Marr as the Shadow Foreign Secretary claimed Labour would have done a better job than Theresa May at negotiating with the EU on Brexit.


    The BBC host said that the Labour MP had "no evidence" to support her argument and was propagating a "fantasy prospectus" of how the Brexit negotiation would be conducted if the Labour Party was in Government.


    Ms Thornberry argued that despite not having had any reassurance by any official EU negotiator or leader on being able to achieve Labour's vision for Brexit, Brussels would understand the Labour position and be more inclined to negotiate with the Party than it is with Theresa May's Government.

    But when Andrew Marr asked whether she had ever had "serious conversations" with anyone in the EU that guaranteed her and her Party the UK would have "exactly the same benefits after leaving as it has now", she replied: “No, no, no. Of course not.


    "But what we’ve had is we have had discussions and they know what it is that we want and they know we are democrats.


    “And if they were in our position they would be trying to negotiate in the same way that we are.


    “We understand each other and we respect each other and we would work together and we would be able to get something out of this.”






    The BBC host immediately hit back: “With all due respect, it is a fantasy prospectus. You have no evidence you would get anywhere like where you wanted

    I still have that thanks. Not a fact in it, not mention of the problems of a hard Brexit with no customs union.
