When May became prime minister after the Brexit vote, in 2016, she sacked George Osborne, who had served as finance minister under May’s predecessor, David Cameron. Osborne then quit politics to become editor of the Evening Standard, a London newspaper. He’s used that perch to relentlessly hound May: according to Esquire, he said last year that he would not rest until she is “chopped up in bags in my freezer.” It comes as no surprise that the Standard has been hard on May’s deal this week, calling it “dead.”

Jeremy Corbyn will set out Labour’s alternative plan for a “good Brexit” in which the UK leaving the EU would spark a “radical programme of investment and real change” for the country. The Labour leader will join Theresa May in addressing business leaders at the annual Confederation of British Industries conference on Monday as he steps up his efforts to outline an alternative plan for the future of Brexit.


Mr Corbyn will call for: “A comprehensive and permanent customs union, with a British say in future trade deals, to support businesses and jobs and ensure no hard border in Northern Ireland. “Guarantee that our country doesn’t fall behind the EU in workers’ rights, or protections for consumers and the environment. “A strong single market relationship that allows British business continued access to European markets for both goods and services – while also ensuring we have the powers to support our public services and industry and transform the economy in all our regions and nations.”

But less than a week before the planned European Council summit she is braced for fresh attacks from inside and outside her own party. Her speech is due to address those – thought to include up to five serving ministers – who think changes can be made to her deal before the November 25 summit.

She is expected to say that there is “an intense week of negotiations ahead of us”, adding: “During that time I expect us to hammer out the full and final details of the framework that will underpin our future relationship and I am confident that we can strike a deal at the council that I can take back to the House of Commons.

“The core elements of that deal are already in place. The Withdrawal Agreement has been agreed in full, subject of course to final agreement being reached on the future framework.”

CBI president John Allan is expected to call for MPs to back Mrs May’s deal – despite it not being “perfect” – and warn of the consequences of crashing of the EU for businesses and the economy.
