Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It would be truly ironic if Corbyn, a lifelong opponent of the EU, were to be the one to revoke A50. To do so he would have to go against the will of the people as expressed in the referendum - something he has said he would not do.  I can't see him doing it unless he commits to doing so in the general election campaign and can thus claim to have a popular mandate for doing so.  That would lose labour their anti-EU voters and revive UKIP.  He could probably win the general election anyway - depending on how bad the Tories look by that stage - but would he take that risk, all for an EU he doesn't believe in?
