Party of Choice , Conditionally
In an interview with the BBC’s John Pienaar, Mr Corbyn said Labour was now the “party of choice” when it came to Brexit.
Ah yes, but under what conditions?
Jeremy Corbyn has challenged the next Tory leader to hold another referendum before taking Britain out of the EU, saying Labour will campaign for Remain. Mr Corbyn says the party will take this position to stop “no deal or a damaging Tory Brexit”.
But he does not say what he would do if he won a general election and was placed in charge of the Brexit process. Some senior members of his team want him to take a pro-Remain stance in all circumstances.
- Corbyn not PM: He wants a “People’s Vote”
- Corbyn PM: He wants a custom’s union
Farage hits the nail squarely on the head.
So does Liberal Democrat spokesman Tom Brake.
Corbyn the Great Pretender
The Platters was one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era. The group had 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1955 and 1967, including four no. 1 hits.
Corbyn does not really want a “People’s Vote”.
Rather, Corbyn took this wishy-washy position because he is afraid of losing Remain votes to the Liberal Democrats.
Of course, his transparent move will offend Labour party members who voted for Brexit.
Once Johnson delivers Brexit, Labour will be more split than the Tories.
