My issue with Corbyn/Labour is the hypocrisy that surrounds the rhetoric and behaviour. Labour has one aim and that is to get a General Election by Hell or High Water to abide by it's Membership instruction but Labour are showing their core voters they are of little to no consequence in those many Labour constituencies that voted Leave.
Labour demands the ' Red Lines' are dropped but not by their party.
Labour demands MP's vote against the EU/UK Withdrawal Bill, stupidly reported as Theresa May's Deal. Yet when Labour is challenged I have heard Corbyn/ John McDonnell/ Keir Starmer/Barry Gardiner/John Trickett Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all say something along the lines of' :-
' We can't change / alter the EU Withdrawal Bill, that's the agreement the EU has agreed to and has said it won't revisit/change. I have even heard Labour Ministers and MP's say they totally agree with the Irish Backstop ! Meaning even if Labour were in charge the EU/UK Withdrawal Bill will remain the same.
The arguments put forward by Labour as reasons to vote against the Withdrawal Bill such as EU Citizens rights both in the UK and in the other 27 EU nations, Employment law, Environmental issues, Security etc. are covered in the the Withdrawal Bill, happy to be corrected !
Labour wants to basically Remain in the EU and let the EU decide what we must do regarding our Law, Trade and abiding by the 4 pillars/freedoms as far as I can see it as it wants to stay in the Customs Union and will align with the Single Market.
Labour is being totally disengenuous when it says it will still have a seat at the table over decisions made in the EU and it would garner more respect if it came out and told the truth Labour is now a Remaining Party. If Labour has been told by the EU it can ' CHERRY PICK ' then let the voters know. If it had I think Labour would be only too pleased to let the voter know by now.
That takes me back to Corbyn. Corbyn has gone through the lobbies time and time again to vote against the EU. He has spoken for years against the EU, same as the Trade Unions once did, he is not a Remainer by heart and deed but he puts getting a bloody General Election and power above all.
