‘Labour today promised to get behind Britain’s exit from the European Union, saying they now believed Brexit is an enormous opportunity for the country.
“If Article 50 needs to be triggered in Parliament, Labour will not seek to block or delay it,” John McDonnell said.
He added that: “to do so would put us against the majority will of the British people and on the side of certain corporate elites, who have always had the British people at the back of the queue.”
In a shift from Labour’s previous support for the EU, McDonnell said he believed it had been run in the interests of big business.’
