Theresa May’s idea of a Brexit that can please the Labour benches

SIR – In her letter on Brexit to Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader (report, February 11), Theresa May, the Prime Minister, wrote that “the urgent task at hand is to find a deal that honours our commitments to the people of Northern Ireland, can command support in Parliament and can be negotiated with the EU”.

Strange: I thought it was to honour the wishes of the British people, as expressed in June 2016.

SIR – Does Mr Corbyn’s plan for Brexit include a mechanism for the United Kingdom to leave the “permanent customs union”?

If not, it will be worse than being trapped in the backstop. If it does, the EU will surely insist that the backstop will still also be necessary….
