So disappointed he refused to join in the cross party meeting on single market today.

He doesn’t believe in the EU, actually I don't think he ever did.
I don’t believe in it as it stands now, but I did do back then.
Corbyn fans will disagree of course, but it was pretty obvious leading up to the referendum.I would have thought more of him however ( all the so called ‘principles’) if he had come out with the message of wanting to leave ‘outright’ and not by fudging and avoiding questions,

From Molly Scott Cato, of the Greens, in the Independent today:

'Like Davis, Corbyn is responding to a world that no longer exists, a world where the EU was a bosses’ Europe and socialism in one country a coherent political philosophy. In this sense, Davis and Corbyn are both fighting yesterday’s battles and are two sides of the same coin.'

I'm afraid, there is only one way to change Corbyn's mind on our future- and that is for disastrous results for Labour in May- with all pro-remainers switching to Green and Lib Dems in droves. Sad, but true.
