I listened to media coverage of Jeremy’s first election speech today and he said what I would have expected of him as a socialist Leader of the chaotic Labour Party.
But hang on a minute whilst he was saying that he would be the political leader of ordinary working people (if electors gave him the top job in Downing Street) one glaring issue contradicts the vision he was putting forward – there could well of course be others but the big one for me is this.
When he whipped his Labour MP’s to support a Hard Brexit and vote with Teresa May’s hard-line right wing Government he actually voted to make life much harder for ordinary folk. Yes, many of this working class supporters may have voted for Brexit but he knows how much they were lied to and that many of them are now wishing they had not voted the way they did.
Brexit is a plan by the rich and powerful to gain more power and more influence over us all so what on earth is a supposedly socialist leader doing backing it?
Sorry Jeremy, you can’t back ordinary folk via political rhetoric having already and very recently voted for a process from which they can only be the losers.
