JEREMY CORBYN mocked Theresa May’s cringe-inducing dance moves at Prime Minister’s Questions today, warning her that she cannot afford to keep “dancing around” Brexit.
Referring to her stiff attempts to cut shapes with children during a recent whistle-stop trade mission tour in Africa, Mr Corbyn said that companies such as Panasonic have “taken the cue and decided to dance off altogether” over concerns of Britain leaving the EU without a deal.
A deal must be agreed between Britain and the EU by next month.
He pointed out that her Cabinet ministers held opposing views over the impact of a no deal, including warnings from Chancellor Philip Hammond of dire economic consequences and Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab’s belief that “countervailing opportunities” would emerge.
Mr Corbyn said: “A majority of people might have voted to leave, but they expected the negotiations to be handled competently and they certainly are not.”
He asked Ms May to reveal how many other companies have told her or her ministers that they would relocate in the absence of a “serious sensible deal.”
She insisted that a number of businesses have “shown confidence” in Britain’s economy and also twice resorted to calling on Mr Corbyn to rule out a second EU referendum, which he ignored.
Mr Corbyn said: “The Chequers proposal is dead, already ripped apart by her own MPs.
“When will the Prime Minister publish a real plan that survives contact with her Cabinet and with reality?”
Ms May said Britain was discussing its published plan with the EU.
