Labour's leadership needs to come clean

This morning I attended the Single Market Summit, the start of a cross-party initiative between opposition leaders to oppose the Conservatives’ hard Brexit.

To the anger of many Labour MPs - and to my great disappointment, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn refused to attend. 

What is disappointing is that the Labour leadership has declined to take part in this summit

Today's meeting was a good, positive step to parliamentary co-ordination between opposition parties against the Conservative Brexit.

There are four parties here who are putting their political differences to one side for the good of the country.

What is disappointing is that the Labour leadership has declined to take part in this summit, even though nearly nine in 10 of their members want them to argue for staying in the Single Market.

It is time the Labour leadership came clean and admitted they are tacitly colluding with the Conservatives on Brexit.

They are failing their members and the country.
