OK I’m no fan of the Labour Party but trying to look at their somewhat bizarre positioning over Brexit I really do scratch my head.

When Corbyn speaks about it you are not at all sure what view he actually holds over Brexit; a bit like Farron and his religious muddle. Does Corbyn think the EU is a capitalist conspiracy or not? I suspect he does but needs to kerb his public statements to keep his party pointing in roughly the same direction over Brexit.

Of course he and his leadership did not want to debate Brexit at their recent conference because to have done so would have exposed the deep divisions within Labour.

That the biggest issue of the day, probably of the decade, is being ignored by the UK’s second largest political party is indeed very bizarre.
