Could a joint approach be possible?
Roger Whitaker, via email
It has been reported that MP Yvette Cooper has said that a cross party group of MPs should negotiate the terms of Brexit with the EU.
I am sure many of us would agree with that if it was possible. However, there is a fundamental difference in their attitude to Brexit to that of the Conservative party. The Conservative party, in general, is in favour of leaving the EU and the Labour party was against, although, having failed to convince a majority of the electorate to agree with them, they did agree that the will of the people should be upheld.
However, there is a feeling that the attitude of the Labour party towards Brexit has changed. With that background, is there any common ground between the two parties that would make a joint approach possible?
