Corbyn – So why does he seemingly have a downer on the poor and young folk?

Well it’s the poor and the young who are going to suffer most from his and Teresa May’s policy of Brexit so for me it’s clear.

I know quite a number of Labour members and supporters and I can only recall one of them being a Brexiter, whats more recent polls seem to indicate that around 80% of Labour Party members oppose Brexit.

For all his bluster Corbyn’s voting record over many years shows him to be very much a Brexiter, so no wonder Labour is in a pickle over the EU.

But here’s the rub, many Labour supporters and indeed members are of the view that Corbyn is playing what they call a ‘long game’ and that he will eventually reveal himself as a Remainer. Trouble is having forced many reluctant Labour MP’s to vote with the Tories over Brexit time and again how on earth do you reverse such a stance and have any credibility at all?

So what if Brexit does not actually happen?

Now for those Brexiters who still read this anti-Brexit blog site I would guess that even the suggestion of Brexit not being followed through (at any cost – the more harm the better) will require them to take to the streets demanding that the UK self-destructs itself.

But in the real world we all know that May and Corbyn and are in a right old tangle about how to deliver Brexit without flushing the UK down the economic pan of history. May’s presently got to find the impossible solutions whilst Corbyn feels the need to both back her and attack her as he does not have to find the solutions.

Let’s face it, things are not going well in any way in Brexit Britain.

Brexit – We need a way out of it say OECD

Well apart from the OECD’s report a statement of the blindingly obvious it will, I assume, be treated as a piece of ‘fake news’ by Brexiters.

It’s time for the UK to wake up and smell the coffee: it’s not too late for us to say ‘we made a right mess of our kids future as we voted to go back to the 1950’s, but we now want to put things right by them’. A little humility is required to say ‘we made a terrible mistake based on lies and misinformation but we have learned our lesson.’

‘Hope JC has taken note , no taxes coming in, equals no spending !!!!!’

Yet another indicator that the UK is on the slide and it’s all pretty much because of Brexit but will Teresa May and Jeremy Corbyn take any notice at all?

And my big question to the disciples of JC is this – How will JC be able to implement his spending pledges when there’s no money in the pot because of much lower tax receipts?

As Roy Connell says ‘Hope JC has taken note , no taxes coming in, equals no spending !!!!!’

Bluekip will want Bercow’s head on a plate for stating the obvious in our parliamentary democracy

The Daily Telegraph has the story on its web site – see link above

Whatever you may think of Bercow (or indeed the Telegraph) he is spot on here.

Brexiters always conveniently seem to forget that we live in a parliamentary democracy and their half-baked plan to take us out of the EU at whatever cost is actually the politics of the mad house that will ruin the UK economically and substantially reduce our influence in the world.

More power to the elbows of MP’s who can see the cliff edge looming and want to stop the UK chucking itself off into the great abyss.

Corbyn ‘If the government can’t negotiate a Brexit deal, they should make way for one that can’

Well here we are with JC in full Brexit cry saying what the Tories can’t negotiate Labour can! It would be funny if it were not so wrong headed.

JC’s Labour have been in Teresa May’s back pocket with regard to Brexit for far too long – they’re like two peas in a pod. Yes, sensible Labour voices like Sadiq Khan keep challenging the Labour Leadership’s barmy stance on Brexit but JC and his shadow cabinet keep on running for the cliff edge with the Tories.

What on earth can JC do to negotiate a good Brexit? There is no good Brexit just differing shades of a bad one. He needs vast taxation revenues to be able to fund his massive spending plans yet Brexit will without doubt lead to huge costs for the Treasury meaning he won’t have the funds to spend without more dangerous borrowing. Indeed, his leadership is already planning for a run on the £ if he gets a majority – planning for a run on the £!!! And how’s that going to provide money for his spending pledges?

Teresa is making a terrible muck of things but JC could not possibly be any better in fact he could well be worse, if such were possible.

Brexit is like fools gold, it looks like what some folk would want it to be but in reality it is worthless.
