The Wall Street Journal: Labour to seek customs union after Brexit to keep some ties with EU

LONDON — The opposition Labour Party is poised to announce a new strategy aimed at forcing Britain to maintain close economic ties with the European Union after it leaves the bloc.

After months of sitting on the fence on the issue, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was expected to put forward in a speech Monday a program intended to ensure a defeat in Parliament for the Brexit strategy of Prime Minister Theresa May’s government, which would precipitate an early general election. The vote is next scheduled for 2022.

May has repeatedly said the U.K. plans to leave the EU’s single market of common regulation and its customs union.
