UK Labour opposition eye swift Brexit deal if May’s government falls

October 17, 2018

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s opposition Labour Party said it was confident it could tie up a new and different Brexit deal with the European Union if Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative government fell and was replaced with a Labour administration.

“We think we can get a deal done fairly quickly,” the party’s finance policy chief John McDonnell told reporters at a lunch in parliament. “I think we would transform the atmosphere, and it would be on the basis of mutual benefit and mutual interest, and on that basis I think we’d get a deal swiftly.”
