How can a hard Brexit fulfill the six tests explicitly put forward by Labour?
Does it ensure a strong and collaborative future relationship with the EU? Does it deliver the “exact same benefits” as we currently have as members of the Single Market and Customs Union? Does it ensure the fair management of migration in the interests of the economy and communities? Does it defend rights and protections and prevent a race to the bottom? Does it protect national security and our capacity to tackle cross-border crime? Does it deliver for all regions and nations of the UK?
It seems unusual to me that anyone would imagine the Conservatives - the party that openly allows for (and in many cases calls for) a hard Brexit - become the party of remain, and Labour - the party which has explicitly come out against - become the party of hard Brexit.
