Theresa May’s pledge to protect workers’ rights after Brexit could persuade up to 70 Labour MPs to back her deal, it was claimed last night.
Labour MP John Mann, who has led talks between his party’s members and the Government, said dozens of colleagues were against Jeremy Corbyn’s plan for a second referendum and could back Mrs May’s plan – if ministers offer enough reassurances.
Brexit-backing backbencher John Mann said the decision to endorse a so-called „People’s Vote“ would infuriate Leave supporters in the Midlands and north of England.
At a meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party on Monday evening, the Bassetlaw MP told Mr Corbyn: „This decision will stop you being Prime Minister.“
A country, proud and independent, standing on its own two feet, confident again in our democracy, bold enough to compete by being the best, British workers making high- quality products and delivering high-quality services.
A country that says it will be the best by having better pay, conditions and a healthier environment than anyone else in Europe or worldwide.
Is that not something to be confident in voting for, my fellow MPs? Let’s get on with it.
