In a major speech on Brexit today, Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, will pledge to “get Brexit sorted” in six months.
The next Labour government will get Brexit sorted within six months by giving the British people, the final say. It won’t be a re-run of 2016. This time the choice will be between leaving with a sensible deal or, remaining in the European Union.
An incoming Labour government will first secure a sensible deal that will take no longer than three months because the deal will be based on terms we’ve already discussed with the EU. This includes a new customs union, a close single market relationship and guarantees of rights and protections.
For those who want to leave the EU without trashing our economy or selling out our NHS you’ll be able to vote for it. If you want to remain in the EU, you’ll be able to vote for that. Either way, only a Labour government will put the final decision in your hands. Labour we will immediately carry out the decision so Britain can get beyond Brexit.
A vote for Johnson’s Conservatives is a vote to betray our NHS in a sell-out to Trump.
The Labour Leader will also say that Johnson’s Trump deal Brexit puts a price tag on our NHS and declare that under Labour “our NHS is not for sale”.
Johnson stood in front of a bus and promised £350 million a week for the NHS. Now we find out that £500 million a week could be taken out of the NHS and handed to big drugs companies under his plans for a sell-out trade deal with Donald Trump.
We now know that US and UK officials have been discussing drug pricing in secret and the US government is demanding “full market access for US products.” Senior NHS managers have said that would mean “higher prices for medicines” which will “pass on costs to both patients and the NHS.”
This threat to our NHS isn’t a mistake. It’s not happening by accident. The threat is there because Boris Johnson’s Conservatives want to hijack Brexit to sell out the NHS.
