UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The plans of the British Prime Minister to negotiate with the EU on the terms of the new deal on Brexit should be put to a popular vote, said British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.
“The Prime Minister declares that he has a strategy, but does not tell us what it consists of. He cannot even tell the European Union about it. In fact, he (the Prime Minister) has nothing. If he has a plan, then he should introduce it to the people – at a referendum or during general elections, “said Corbin, speaking in parliament after Johnson introduced the issue of early parliamentary elections on October 15 to the House of Commons.
In late August, Johnson invited EU leaders to amend the text of the agreement, removing the provisions on the border with Ireland from it, which did not arouse enthusiasm in Brussels. German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave Britain 30 days to prepare new Brexit proposals.
Since then, despite Johnson’s ongoing statements that “negotiations with Brussels are ongoing,” no evidence has been provided that the government has developed any proposals.
