You fell at the first - heís not proposing to stay in the E.U. internal customs union, but rather create a new customs union with itís own rules (Turkey already have this). Whether the E.U. would go for rules that the U.K. would want is a good question, but initial reaction in Brussels wasnít an immediate Ďnoní like May got when she suggested renegotiating the Withdrawl Agreement. Of the other 4, May has already proposed enshrining legal protection for U.K. workers rights to remain aligned with E.U. rights, so at least some of what Corbyn suggests could have legs.
