2. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Britain's opposition Labour Party Leader: ++CONTINUES FROM PREVIOUS SHOT++
"From what we've read about this deal, it doesn't meet our demands or our expectations. It creates a border down the Irish Sea between Britain and Northern Ireland, and it leads once again to a race to the bottom in rights and protections for British citizens and the danger of the sell-off of our national assets to American corporations."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Britain's opposition Labour Party Leader:
"We are unhappy with this deal and as it stands will vote against it, though obviously we need to see all of the last details of it."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Britain's opposition Labour Party Leader:
"The most important thing is to have a good relationship with Europe in the future, which means a good trade relationship. And it's also very important from the Labour Party's point of view to absolutely protect the rights and protections that we've obtained through membership of the European Union and to ensure that we have an effective trade relationship with Europe, because half of our trade is with Europe. And particularly in the north of England, large numbers of manufacturing plants rely on trade with Europe. And so as this deal stands, we cannot support it."
Journalist: "But that's something for the future relations agreement, not for the withdrawal agreement."
Corbyn: "The important thing is to make this decision now before we take any steps forward. And as it stands, we will not support this agreement the (UK) prime minister (Boris Johnson) has apparently reached today. It also appears to be a very high wire act, because he doesn't have the support, apparently, of his own allies in parliament."
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Britain's opposition Labour Party Leader:
"A Labour government elected in a general election would within three months negotiate an agreement with the European Union around the five pillars that we have often set out, which are of customs union, trade relationship, protection of rights and of course, protection of the Good Friday Agreement. And then within six months we would put that to a referendum under a Labour government."

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Jeremy Corbyn, Britain's opposition Labour Party Leader:
"This is a day when the prime minister seems to have made a deal with the European Union, which doesn't give us the complete freedom of movement between Britain and Ireland, because it creates a customs union border down the Irish Sea. And secondly, it does nothing to deal with all the concerns that we've raised during Theresa May's premiership and his (Boris Johnson's) about a race to the bottom in rights and protections. And we believe the deal he has proposed is heading Britain in the direction of a deregulated society, the sell-off of national assets to American corporations. So as it stands, we can't support this deal and will oppose it in parliament on Saturday. And it also is unclear if he has the support of his allies in the DUP or indeed many of his allies in his own backbenches."
U.K. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn on Thursday condemned the Brexit deal brokered between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the European Union.
"We are unhappy with this deal and as it stands will vote against it," he said at a meeting of Socialist leaders in Brussels.
Corbyn objected to the prospect of a border down the Irish Sea between Britain and Northern Ireland.
He said the deal would move the country towards a deregulated society and lead to the "sell-off of national assets to American corporations".
He also said that it was a "high-wire act" given the uncertainty over whether Britain's parliament will ratify the deal.
With Johnson's Northern Irish allies, the Democratic Unionist Party, currently rejecting the deal, the prime minister will likely need support of some pro-Brexit Labour lawmakers to get the deal through Parliament.
