Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Corbyn has been positioning his candidature for PM post-BREXIT deadline. He evidently expects "no-deal." He evidently has difficulty persuading Labour members (UK, SCOTLAND, IE) to accept his leadership, when the political windfall comes to Tory "opposition" with third-country status to the EU.

UK EXIT is scheduled one way or another absent HoC vote to revoke. Exit is the conclusion to all "options".

Conversely, Corbyn evidently has prepared to re-negotiate the "Political Declaration" trade agenda in the event HoC ratifies the Withdrawal Agreement to appease Tories --BECAUSE exit is scheduled by the WA. (letter) Again, he does not dispute WA trade terms; he plans to conform UK third-country trade position to minimum EU or EEA criteria.

Some precepts in the "Political Declaration" must survive exit in HoC, IF the Uk is to trade with EU.

Feedback in the (crypto-Tory) press exploits Labour party ambivalence about Corbyn's popular support for the party as well as any popular vote that might symbolically undermine Tory dominance of the HoC.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
