It seems odd but the Brexit policy stance of our Official Opposition in the UK is providing cover for our Bluekip/DUP Government of the ever further right. And yes it’s very uncomfortable for those of us on the left of UK politics who are vastly Remainers, but sadly it is where we are.
In some ways I understand that moderate Labour MP’s (who make up a majority of the Parliamentary Labour Party) are in the main keeping their heads down over Brexit, even though they know it will be a disaster for the UK. They do so of course because they fear deselection and or trouble from a Momentum dominated Party membership. But the longer they keep quiet the more Labour allows our appalling Government to push ahead on Brexit.
I am convinced that a joint credible Labour/Lib Dem/SNP/Green push against Brexit would all but finish off a deeply divided Tory Party.
But it seems we need not only moderate Labour MP’s but moderate Labour Party members to rise up to try to force a change in the Labour leadership’s pro-Brexit policy approach.
What’s the point of Labour trying to win the next General Election if it can’t carry out its spending pledges because Brexit has broken our weak economy into pieces? Why doesn’t the Labour Leadership see this for itself?
Yes I know loyalty to the Party is everything in Labour but surely the many Remainers in Labour can get to grips with the fewer Brexiters.
And the bottom line, Brexit will lead to the loss of things that the trade union movement has fought for over generations. Brexit is a Loss of Rights Charter for the ordinary man and woman – it must be stopped.
