Key quotes:

“The TUC and CBI are united in their belief that the UK must remain in the customs union after Brexit. We have now come to accept that the Tory party is no longer the party of or for business; it is being led by Brextremist ideologues who are driving us towards the economic cliff edge.

“So it is over to Labour. With 56% of potential Labour voters wanting the party to remain in the single market and customs union, and just 13% opposed, it is time for the party to change tack. Not only would such a policy shift be politically expedient, it might be the only way for a future Labour government to meet its commitments to jobs and investment in public services in post-Brexit Britain.”
