UK opposition Labour backs soft Brexit, putting pressure on May
Summary with new information since yesterday, from articles in English
Britain's main opposition Labour Party is announcing a policy shift which opens the possibility of the country remaining in the European Union's single market and customs union for several years as part of a "soft" brexit, a spokesman said on Saturday .

The party would propose the same "basic terms" as Britain's current relationship with the EU during a transition period following Brexit in 2019, and after that for all options to be open, a spokesman for Labour said .

Corbyn's party would also "leave open the option of the UK remaining a member of the customs union and single market for good, beyond the end of the transitional period", the paper said .

A longer-term arrangement would only be considered if a Labour government could by that point have persuaded the rest of the EU to " agree to a special deal on immigration and changes to freedom of movement rules the paper said .
