The UK’s main Labor Party will vote in favor of Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union, its chairman Keir Starmer said on Thursday.
“I can say today that if this deal comes before Parliament. Labor will accept it and vote for it,” he said, adding that it is in the national interest to do so in the face of the no-deal alternative.
However, he criticized the deal as “not the deal promised by the government”, called it “thin” and expressed fears about the government’s preparations for leaving the EU internal market.
