Union Leader Talks Bollix Over Brexit
Corbyn supporter Len McCluskey doesn't seem to recognise that he is proposing exactly the same 'pie in the sky' solution to accessing the EU's Single Market and Customs Union as the Conservative Government in this 'Peston on Sunday' debate with the former EU Commissioner Peter Mandelson.
Now Len McCluskey is essentially arguing that the UK should retain all the benefits of being a member of the EU Single Market and Customs Union, but without having to contribute anything to the expense of managing these important institutions.
In fact, he's really saying the UK should be able to reap the benefits of belonging to a membership club without having to pay any 'dues' - which is a strange and dishonest argument for a union leader to make.
