Labour's policy is to remain in the EU but negotiate a better reform package

On BBC Question Time yesterday Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell said that Labour's policy is to remain in the EU but negotiate a better reform package than David Cameron.

Admittedly the David Cameron package was a dud.

But the idea that the Labour party would get anything better is not credible.

In reality, Jeremy Corbyn is stuck with a parliamentary party that does not represent the membership and yet will not allow the leadership to campaign for LEAVE.

Therefore we have this wholly ignominious situation where Jeremy Corbyn pretends to be in favour of staying in, and his parliamentary party pretends to support him.
