Press release from Die Linke – Brexit: Mr Corbyn, übernehmen Sie

Die Linke, The Left Party in Germany and member of the European Left Party shows solidarity with Britain’s Left in their press release issued on 16 January.

Andrej Hunko of Die Linke says:

“Theresa May’s crushing defeat in Parliament makes a chaotic exit from the EU more likely. We now have to do all we can to prevent the worst case scenario. We are arguing that the German Government seek an extension of Article 50 in the European Council. The rights of British citizens in the EU and EU citizens in the UK need to be guaranteed in a separate agreement, they are not a bargaining chip.
Extending the time period will allow space for a solution to be found, alongside the possibility of new elections and a referendum.
Jeremy Corbyn as Prime Minister is the only chance of stopping the free market deregulation of tax cuts for business, low wages and workers’ rights.
Should the opportunity of new elections arise, we say – Jeremy Corbyn- please take over!”
