Responding to Jeremy Corbyn’s op-ed in The Guardian in which he said he would “stay neutral” on Brexit, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said:
“Jeremy Corbyn is ignoring the lives that are under threat because of Brexit. Effectively, he is saying he will just stand back and watch the mess unfold, demonstrating that he is the worst political leader in British history.
“The Labour Leader has a personal obsession with taking the UK out of the EU. His failure to oppose Brexit from day one has given the Tories their best ally on Brexit.
“Jeremy Corbyn is not fit to be Prime Minister. Labour will never be a party for Remainers. Meanwhile, Liberal Democrats will continue to fight tooth and nail to stop Brexit.”
