I must admit I have begun to laugh these days when JC attacks the incoherent TM for being in a right old muddle over Brexit because he too is in that very same muddle. Yes he attacks her but he keeps on voting with her in the H of C! OK Lab’s official position last night was to abstain but that kind of sums them up at present does it not?
This Tweet from Vince Cable of a couple of days ago also hits the Labour nail on their heads:-
‘Just suggested to @theresa_may in the chamber that she might as well have Labour leadership with her at the #Brexit negotiations, since they seem to agree with her on leaving Single Market and Customs Union, no matter how disastrous that may be.’

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.

Love this tweet from Tom Brake MP – sums up why Labour are nothing more than Tory lackeys over Brexit:-
‘Neither Govt nor Official Opposition have the solution to UK’s #Brexit problem. The first wants to drive us off the Brexit cliff. The second wants to drive us off the cliff and hover for 2 years before also crashing to the ground. We need a vote on the deal & an exit from Brexit’
That our Bluekip Government, propped up by the right wing DUP, have been driving us ever nearer to the Brexit cliff edge is bad enough but with Labour embarrassingly hanging on to May’s Brexit shambles of a coattail is just too much.
Yes I know Labour’s right wing working class supporters mainly voted for Brexit but the sad fact is that they, being amongst the poorest in our society, will in all probability come of worst when May (together with Corbyn?) really do jump off that Brexit cliff.
Have Labour forgotten that the Official Opposition is there to oppose – it’s what our democratic processes have been all about for donkey’s years!
But what started my latest Brexit rant? Well I don’t read newspapers much these days but I happened to come across a copy of the Sunday Mirror the other day – it was from 12th November. And here’s the headline my eyes lighted upon:-
The point being that Labour’s Keir Starmer is trying to amend Tory legislation so that workers rights are protected when Brexit hits us because those rights are under great threat from Brexiters who are using the EU Referendum result to attack them.
It’s not that Starmer is wrong to try to amend the legislation but what is wrong is that Labour continues to back Brexit which in turn presents our Bluekip/DUP Government with the opportunity to bash workers rights!
You really could not make this up, it’s as though Labour support the Brexit principle, despite the damage it’s going to do to us all (the poor in particular), but they plod on backing it whist trying to change the consequences of it. Have they not thought it’s time to stop backing the process that’s causing all the trouble in the first place?

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 !!!!!’
This Brexit lark gets odder by the day; why on earth can’t we all see what these investigations into the consequences of Brexit say? Probably because they say things that the establishment (read Tory/Bluekip and Labour/Redkip Party leaderships) do not want us to see!
We all know that in a democracy if you are denied sight of something it is in your interests to see it.
