Labour is a Brexit Party

May 1, 2019 9:55 AM

Labour is a Brexit PartyThe Labour Party are officially pro-Brexit.

In the crucial vote of their NEC on Tuesday night, Labour confirmed their policy on Brexit:

  1. Work with the Tories to deliver Brexit.

  2. Win a General Election, so they can deliver Brexit.

  3. Maybe hold a referendum, but only if they can't deliver Brexit.

If you're a Remainer, that makes your choice even clearer.

Portswood candidate James Read comments:

Labour Brexit fudge"Labour have been trying to face both ways on Brexit, which is how they've ended up with a fudge of a Brexit policy.

"Liberal Democrats have been fighting to stop Brexit every single day since the EU referendum.

"We've marched, lobbied, delivered leaflets, knocked on doors and worked tirelessly to change the public's mind.

"And it's worked - we are closer than ever to stopping Brexit."

According to one poll, 86% of Labour's own members support a People's Vote - yet party leaders are refusing to listen.

James Read adds:

James Read"The majority of Labour members and voters are no longer represented by Jeremy Corbyn's Brexit-supporting party.

"The result of the 2017 General Election was characterised as an endorsement of Brexit. Is that really what Labour voters wanted?

"This election is not about Brexit - but just like in 2017, your vote will be construed as either pro-remain, or pro-leave.

"When Labour and the Tories stand united on an issue, and votes for either party count towards the same goal - Brexit - voters are right to ask questions of their representatives."

We are unequivocal - a vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to Stop Brexit. No ifs, no buts, no fudge.
