Opposition Says It Will Seek Re-Write of Brexit Deal If Labour Wins Next Polls
United Kingdom (UK) opposition leader, Sir Keir Starmer has said he will seek a “much better” Brexit deal with the European Union (EU) if labour wins the next general election.
However, the opposition leader told the financial times that the current deal, which is due for review in 2025, is “too thin”.
Sir Keir speaking at a conference of Centre-left leaders in Montreal, Canada, ruled out the UK, re-joining the customs union, the single market or the EU.
Meanwhile, it remains unclear, however, if the EU would be open to making major changes to the agreement, which was agreed by former conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson in 2021.
Also, the conservatives have already seized on sir Keir’s comments about Brexit. They believe that his position could push Brexiters who backed the conservatives in 2019 back towards Rishi Sunak.
A conservative spokesman said that sir Keir “wants to take Britain back to square one on Brexit, reopening the arguments of the past all over again”.
In the Labour Party, there is some anxiety about the row sir Keir found himself embroiled in about whether Labour would accept a quota of asylum seekers from the EU as part of a ‘burden-sharing’ migration agreement. On Sunday.
