UK's Labour pledges new Brexit strategy if it wins election

Jeremy Corbyn has been savaged for his view on Britain's Trident nuclear deterrent and the security alliance Nato in an attack ad released by the Conservative Party

Others have called the snap election "baffling and confusing".

Labour's Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said that, if elected, his party would guarantee EU nationals living Britain the right to remain in the United Kingdom after the split, and would be open to retaining the benefits of the EU's single market and customs union.

Despite supporting the upcoming general election, 37% of personal investors feel it will have a negative impact on stock markets, with 31% already changing their investment behaviour, or likely to do so in the run-up to polling day.

But she may also face election fatigue among an electorate who voted in the European Union referendum less than a year ago.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said at the weekend that a Labour government led by him will create Bank Holidays on the patron saints' days of Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.

"Jeremy Corbyn is too weak and floundering to get a good deal in the Brexit negotiations", said the government's Brexit Secretary, David Davis.

"EU nationals do not just contribute to our society: they are our society".

And Remainers are pretty much using a similar strategy.

Senior Conservatives have repeatedly talked up the prospects of Labour doing well, in what is seen by many Westminster observers as an effort to avoid complacency among its supporters.

Open Britain, a group campaigning against a Hard Brexit, has drawn up an "attack list", according to the Guardian.

He said many Britons were "held back" by the government and "many people feel the system is rigged against them".

Housing Minister Gavin Barwell MP said: "Under Theresa May's strong and stable leadership, we recently set out a clear plan to build more affordable housing - and the number of housing starts is up by three quarters since 2010".

"They got it wrong at the last election, they got it wrong in the referendum and God help us they got it wrong with Trump".

Starmer said Labour would ditch May's plan for a Great Repeal Bill — which will transpose all EU law into British law when the country leaves the bloc — and replace it with an EU Rights and Protections Bill to ensure that workplace rights and environmental standards are not watered down after Brexit.

"Pro-Europeans need to stand up and be counted between now and 8 June".

Mr Healey, a housing minister in Gordon Brown's government, said that decades of missed housing targets was a "test that all us as politicians have to meet".

However the Conservative Party said that Labour's figures were misleading as Tory councils are smaller in geographical size and tend to have more protected land.

Mr Kwarteng said the United Kingdom would have to leave the single market if it wanted to tackle the freedom of movement across Europe.

"If Remainers still want to stay in the European Union and see the election as a tool to do that, then the answer will be no".
