Corbyn calls for support for his Brexit plan as Commons approaches - The Guardian

Jeremy Corbyn urged members of all parties to vote on Theresa May's deal and support his "alternative plan" for Brexit, as the activists of the second referendum urged him to "get off the fence" and agree to a renewed public vote.

Labor's leader, who wrote in The Guardian, said that the party's "Comprehensive Customs Union Plan" should be one of the options on the table should the party not be able to force general elections – in addition to a second referendum.

Corbyn argued that if May were defeated next Tuesday, the government would lose "its governing ability." This would have led to an automatic election prior to the introduction of the Temporary Parliaments Act of 2011, which regulated the rules of trust.

"If we do not get a choice under the current rules, all options must be on the table," Corbyn wrote. "That should include Labor's alternative and, as our conference decided in September, the option to promote a public poll to break the bag."
