Hard Brexit gets just 35% public support – Have you heard the sound of chickens coming home to roost May & Corbyn?

I wonder how the 35% who support a hard Brexit (leaving the EU at any cost) break down into party political allegiances? Assuming that virtually all UKIP’ers would support a hard Brexit (just as virtually all Lib Dem supporters would oppose a hard Brexit, or any Brexit at for that matter) and also many Tories then maybe this makes dear Jeremy’s position look even more bizarre, should that be possible!

The Brexit at any cost folk probably don’t mind our economy being screwed but the rest of us certainly do. If the unlikely partnership of Tories, UKIP and Labour really does lead us over the edge of the cliff the consequences look like they are going to be (and rightly so) on the heads of those political leaders who have voted for a hard Brexit.

The sound of chickens coming home to roost can even now be heard in the La La land of Westminster.

Well Mrs May(day) what else are you going to allow the US to sell over here in your all too desperate plea to Donald for a UK-US trade deal!

Of course you could continue to trade favourably with neighbouring EU countries; have you thought about that logical alternative?

Labour privatisation in Haringey

Seems that Labour still has a significant Blairite following despite Corbyn’s socialist agenda. But what is this all about as it looks to me like mass privatisation and by a Labour-run council too!
