Corbyn demands commitments from May for his support

DThe British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn has given Prime Minister Theresa May the conditions for his support in the Brexit conflict. His Labor Party will support the Brexit course of the government if May establishes five legally binding commitments in the political declaration on future relations with the EU, Corbyn wrote in a letter from the end of Wednesday.

This included the Labor Chairman of a permanent and United Kingdom-wide customs union, which is aligned with the EU customs union. "We believe that a customs union is necessary to ensure smooth trade that our businesses, employees and consumers need," Corbyn said. "It is the only feasible way to ensure that there is no hard limit on the Irish island."

In addition, there must be close coordination with the internal EU market. Corbyn also called for a dynamic alignment of rights and safeguards, commitment to further UK involvement in EU agencies and funding programs, as well as clear agreements on future security cooperation.

Some EU supporters within the Labor Party criticized Corbyn's letter. They felt that the letter contradicted the attitude of the party towards the Brexit.

Premier May wants to discuss on Thursday how the Brexit blockade can take place in Brussels. She meets, among others, Donald Tusk, EU President of the Council.
