Corbyn’s Brexit letter to May divides Labour MPs

Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell is insisting Labour’s new Brexit plan could become a reality because it could get the support of enough MPs in Parliament.

Earlier this week, leader Jeremy Corbyn wrote to the Prime Minister urging her to back a deal with five demands, including a customs union with the EU and a say on future EU trade deals.

But the offer to Theresa May, who right now is dining with the Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, has gone down badly with some Labour MPs who want to remain.
