Thread Name: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
What's on offer from Labour is reasonable and clear, and it's been Labour policy for months.
You're avin a laff boy!
1)only a slim majority of current Labour voters (52%) actually understand their own Brexit policy. Is it any wonder the omnishamblic party’s now languishing in third place?..
2)Labour voted for the referendum, and to trigger Article 50. Their manifesto promised to “accept the referendum result”. And they swore repeatedly that they wouldn’t overturn the decision made three years ago, by the many, not the few. Now, Labour’s true colours are showing
3)Banning private schools.It contravenes the European Convention on Human Rights, Protocol 1, Article 2:the right of parents to have their children educated in accordance with their religious and other views, allowing groups to educate children without being impeded by the nation state.
4) As the Independant eloquently states:
“We are committed to legislating for a second referendum within six months. Before that we’re going to go back to Brussels and negotiate a completely new deal in the space of a few weeks even though the last one took years.
“Then we’re going to have a special, one day conference in which the party will decide whether to back its own deal or whether to back Remain in the second referendum.
“But whatever that conference decides, the prime minister Jeremy Corbyn probably isn’t going to take any notice of it. He, the actual prime minister, is going to sit it out entirely. But it won’t just be him. After we’ve had this special, one day conference, nobody in the government will be expected to take any notice of it. They’re going to be free to campaign for whatever they like.”
As I have frequently stated they are the hokey cokey party
This labour fiasco will simply drive supporters to either the Libdems or Brexit party in the coming election and Labour will be destroyed.
Bring it on, I say
