Jeremy Corbyn has accepted Theresa Mays offer of

first_imgJeremy Corbyn has accepted Theresa May’s offer of further Brexit talks to break the deadlock.In a response issued this evening, the Labour leader suggested that he would go into the meeting with his five demands for Brexit – customs union membership, dynamic alignment on workers’ rights, etc – and did not mention a confirmatory public vote.Corbyn said: “I’m very happy to meet the Prime Minister. I don’t want to set any limits, one way or the other, ahead of those meetings. We recognise that she has made a move. I recognise my responsibility to represent the people who supported Labour in the last election and the people who didn’t support Labour but nevertheless want certainty and security for their own future. And that’s the basis on which we will meet her and have those discussions.“Labour has put forward our proposals to ensure there is a customs union with the EU, access to vital markets and protections of our standards of consumer, environmental and workers’ rights. And we’ll ensure that those are on the table. We’re also very clear that there has to be an absolute guarantee that the Good Friday Agreement is maintained for peace in Northern Ireland.“So far the Prime Minister hasn’t shown much sign of compromise, but I’m pleased that today she’s indicated she’ll accept the view of parliament and is prepared to reach out and have that discussion. I have been meeting MPs from all parties over the past weeks. And there is some common ground; there are some areas it’s difficult to agree on. But, however people voted in the referendum of 2016, they didn’t vote for lower living standards or to lose their jobs. And there’s far more that unites people on both sides than divides them.”Tags:Jeremy Corbyn /Brexit /last_img read more

MIKE Rush was understandably pleased after Saints

first_imgMIKE Rush was understandably pleased after Saints beat Castleford 44-12 last night.Whilst his side scored eight points he was more impressed with the defensive display.“We were defensively a lot more like it,” he said. “We only conceded one try from a tap and that frustrated me because we didn’t get set and get to the line ready. Maybe that was a kick up the backside we needed. Their last try was a kick but you have to be happy they didn’t break our line on too many occasions. It was a lot better.“I thought Tommy Makinson was very good. Sometimes young players need a little kick up the backside or the feel of feet behind him. Sometimes they need to know that nothing is god given. He was excellent.“Paul Wellens was my man of the match. He scored one and lay on another and to be fair he made another when he came around the corner and Jonny got a kick away.“He is a good captain who leads from the front. He said a lot of things about how we needed to finish this season well and it certainly showed how much it mattered to him.”Anthony Laffranchi suffered a head injury early in the game and didn’t return, but is expected to be fine.last_img read more
