Brexit shock: Labour’s covert strategy made public – a shadow cabinet member promises that the United Kingdom WILL re-join the European Union

A Labour MP has said that the UK rejoining the EU is a possibility.

A member of Labour’s shadow cabinet told The I that Britain’s future may lie inside the bloc or with tight economic connections.

“I can see Britain being a member of the EU again in the long run,” they added.

The possibility that the UK would pursue a “Swiss-style” agreement to open up trade with the EU in an effort to strengthen its economy has given Brexit new life in recent months.

Even though it has been suggested that the UK wants to have a better relationship with the EU, Downing Street has called these claims “categorically untrue.”

As the Government considers a tighter relation with the EU that avoids the present economic hurdles, The Sunday Times reported in November that a “Swiss-style” transition may take place over the following ten years.

This wouldn’t include a restoration to free movement, the study claims.

Due to a number of bilateral agreements, Switzerland and the EU enjoy a tight economic connection that gives it direct access to the EU’s internal market, including the free movement of people.

The Northern Ireland Protocol, a post-Brexit agreement for the area intended to prevent a border on the island of Ireland, is the subject of extensive discussions between the UK and the EU.
