I think he, and Labour, have no choice.
Britain, by its own volition, or inaction, is fucked. Enough people chose to believe easily disprovable lies, or to blame scapegoats, or to sit out a vote for all manner of reasons. Whatever, we are where we are. Not enough was done to manage the withdrawal from the EU in a sensible manner, because both the remain camp (in hoping to overturn the referendum) and the hardcore leavers (in holding out for ultra-Brexit) hoped for jam tomorrow.
It's this deal or catastrophe, in which people will die. It's possible to salvage something from this, or manage the decline to the point of people not noticing so much. Mitigate its worst effects. Keep reminding people who led them here. Hope we're never as stupid again.
