From The Independent live blog:
Jeremy Corbyn says the vote means parliament is taking back control: “This defeat is a humiliating loss of authority for the government on the eve of the European Council meeting.
“Labour has made the case since the referendum for a meaningful vote in Parliament on the terms of Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.
“Theresa May has resisted democratic accountability. Her refusal to listen means she will now have to accept Parliament taking back control.”
I must admit I take Corbyn with a pinch of salt. I agree with some criticisms of capitalism he makes, some of his political proposals for a Labour government such as re-nationalisation of key parts of Britain’s infrastructure. But there is still the whiff of Communism in him, and we know that failed.
Labour policy on Brexit is a huge unknown territory. He has as many splits in his own party as the evil Tories.
However, when he accuses May of resisting democratic oversight of her government, he’s nailed it accurately. She is totally incompetent, and her only success has been in uniting views on left and right about her incompetence.
