LABOUR leader Jeremy Corbyn has slammed Theresa May over increasing Brexit divisions in her Cabinet.
Mr Corbyn asked the Prime Minister if she can “guarantee” that “her Cabinet ministers will co-operate with the police investigation” into the Vote Leave campaign, which has been referred to the police for breaking electoral law, considering that leading Conservative figures Chris Grayling, Liam Fox and Dominic Raab were prominent committee members of the campaign.
Reminding her that “people are losing trust in this government,” Mr Corbyn went on to say that “after two years of dither and delay, the government has sunk into a mire of chaos and division.
“The white paper that has meant to unite the Cabinet has meant that the Cabinet has fallen apart within forty-eight hours.
“When will the new white paper be published?”
In a weak response from the Prime Minister, Ms May accused Corbyn of “organising a protest against Donald Trump” while she organised trade deals with him, despite the president’s unpopularity in Britain, and asked him to “reflect” on allegations against Cabinet members that even she conceded he had not made.
Mr Corbyn asked whether Ms May thought the EU would agree to a unique deal on a customs union “just to satisfy Tory divisions,” and labelled their previous policy “cobbled together mishmash.”
He also asked if Mr Raab, the incoming Brexit Secretary, agreed with British membership of the European Convention on Human Rights, despite his recorded opposition to the treaty.
