Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Labour MPs might vote against a deal that the Conservatives agree to, simply because the Conservatives agreed to it. That seems to be politics these days.

Furthermore, what is the magic wand that Labour is supposed to bring to the table that was not available to the Conservative Party in the first place?

If anything, I would expect the votes on a joint Conservative + Labour proposal to be defeated even more clearly than May's proposal.

If anything, it is Tory MPs which have been acting in the more partisan fashion. Just 37 Tory MPs supported the Customs Union plan in the indicative votes. 33 backed the Single Market, and just 15 backed a second referendum. So how many do you expect to support a plan containing Corbyn's red lines...?
