Il leader del partito laburista britannico, Jeremy Corbyn prova a battere un colpo. “La Brexit è stata ormai decisa: ora dobbiamo concentrarci su quale debba essere la politica per il nostro Paese dopo l’uscita dall’Ue” ha scritto nel discorso di cui sono stati diffusi alcuni stralci e con il quale lancerà la campagna del suo partito, fortemente indietro nei sondaggi, in vista delle elezioni dell’8 giugno. “Queste elezioni non riguardano Brexit, semmai che tipo di Brexit e che politica vogliamo per la Gran Bretagna dopo questo processo”. Nel suo discorso Corbyn fa anche riferimento alla centralità del lavoro per “una società veramente più equa e un’economia migliore”. Le elezioni di giugno sono state annunciate a sorpresa lo scorso 18 aprile dal primo ministro britannico Theresa May.

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the UK Labour Party, believes that the issue of Brexit has been “settled” and the Britons now should decide on the policy of the country after they leave the 28-nation bloc, media reported Tuesday citing excerpts from his speech to be delivered later in the day. On Tuesday, the Labour politician is expected to formally launch the campaign of his party ahead of the snap general election scheduled for June 8. “This election isn’t about Brexit itself. That issue has been settled. The question now is what sort of Brexit do we want – and what sort of country do we want Britain to be after Brexit,” Corbyn will say, according to the ITV news broadcaster. Corbyn’s speech is expected to focus on the Labour vision of Brexit, which should be “jobs-first” and should open the doors to “a genuinely fairer society and an upgraded economy.” The politician is also expected to accuse the Conservatives of putting the interests of their party above the “real national interest.” In March, the United Kingdom officially started the process of withdrawal from the European Union against the backdrop of the 2016 referendum, when the majority of Britons decided to leave the bloc. On April 18, UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who is the leader of the Conservatives, called an early general election, saying that the country needed a strong government to succeed in the withdrawal talks with Brussels. On April 19, the move was supported by the House of Commons and on May 3, May asked Queen Elizabeth II to dissolve the parliament.
