We joke about Rees-Mogg and their ilk wanting to send children up chimneys, turns out we weren't far off

Labour Pro-Europe MEP Richard Corbett has published this alarming account of a conversation between 3 UK parliamentarians and a UK diplomat in a developing country.

In a nutshell, the UK diplomat said that post-brexit we could offer the third world trade without insisting on International Labour Organisation [ILO] rules as the EU does.

This basically means turning a blind eye to child labour! Brexit opportunities indeed!
