the UK wants the European Union on 29. March, leave. The agreement on the modalities of the withdrawal, the May with the EU, which had already been negotiated fell through in mid-January in the British Parliament. Also, many members from Mays Conservative party voted against the Deal. Corbyn was May last week, the support of his party in view, if you accept a customs Union and access to the EU internal market.
In the case of a customs Union could be maintained an open border between the part of the United Kingdom of Northern Ireland and the EU Ireland after the Brexit. In the case of a “hard” limit on the island, however, a resurgence of the bloody Northern Ireland, it is feared conflict.
Corbyn had also argued that Britain would have in the case of a customs Union have a say in future trade agreements of the EU. May, however, the freedom of action of London look limited. “To me, it is not clear why you believe that to have a say in future EU trade agreements, the ability would be preferable to own agreement,” she writes.
