|After Labour failed to back a Liberal Democrat amendment which would hold open membership of the single market, Vince Cable accused Labour of driving through an extreme and damaging Brexit in cahoots with the Conservatives.
Vince Cable said:
“Labour let down British workers tonight.
“This ends any pretence that Jeremy Corbyn is fighting for us to stay in the single market.
“He whipped his MPs to support the Conservatives, sitting on his hands rather than voting against their extreme Brexit plans.
“This is now a Tory-Labour Brexit.”
