Jeremy Corbyn Supports a Conditional "People's Choice" Second Referendum

-edited

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn now supports a People's Choice vote. Well, sort of, conditionally, provided he is not PM.

Party of Choice , Conditionally

In an interview with the BBC's John Pienaar, Mr Corbyn said Labour was now the "party of choice" when it came to Brexit.

Ah yes, but under what conditions?

Jeremy Corbyn has challenged the next Tory leader to hold another referendum before taking Britain out of the EU, saying Labour will campaign for Remain. Mr Corbyn says the party will take this position to stop "no deal or a damaging Tory Brexit".

But he does not say what he would do if he won a general election and was placed in charge of the Brexit process. Some senior members of his team want him to take a pro-Remain stance in all circumstances.

Conditions Explained

  • Corbyn not PM: He wants a "People's Vote"
  • Corbyn PM: He wants a custom's union

News Alert

Farage hits the nail squarely on the head.

So does Liberal Democrat spokesman Tom Brake.

Corbyn the Great Pretender

Musical Tribute

The Platters was one of the most successful vocal groups of the early rock and roll era. The group had 40 charting singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between 1955 and 1967, including four no. 1 hits.

Transparent Lie

Corbyn does not really want a "People's Vote".

Rather, Corbyn took this wishy-washy position because he is afraid of losing Remain votes to the Liberal Democrats.

Of course, his transparent move will offend Labour party members who voted for Brexit.

Key Point

Once Johnson delivers Brexit, Labour will be more split than the Tories.

Sorry, the people of England already voted, and their opinion now doesn't matter.

The EU is collapsing as fast as Deutch bank's ability to finance the tyranny that is Brussels.

Even if England changed its mind and wanted to rejoin the EU, there is nothing to rejoin. Too late

Wasn't there another spineless British politician, Neville Chamberlain or something like that, who couldn't figure out what to do about events on the continent?

The EU has absolutely zero democratic legitimacy (and its fiscal situation is even worse). Its farsical to talk about holding a vote about a committee of tyrants.

Corbyn's other lie is "no deal". The default deal is WTO rules. It must be a halfway decent deal because other countries continue to trade with members of the EU.

Pair of good comments by GeeWiz

No Deal = WTO Deal

That's a good deal in and of itself
