Labour nearly came to power with a policy of respecting the referendum despite best efforts to sabotage electoral success by the hard remain obsessed right. Now Labour has adopted their insane policy it has become a national joke. They don’t want Corbyn in power they want Remain.

Sure, the EU likes workers‘ rights… unless they get in the way of corporate profiteering, then the ECJ steps in and squashes them. @EddieDempsey #brexit

Superb interview with @C_Lapavitsas on the nonsensical remain and reform argument, shows left remainism is capitulation to capitalism and spells out the false capitalist ‚internationalism‘ peddled by left remain is the opposite of workers internationalism.

Tony Benn said what they’re doing with the EU is creating an Empire. We should have no part of it. He was correct. Internationalism is the free association of free sovereign nations. The EU is everything we should oppose as anti imperialists, democrats, socialists.

Transforming Britain After Brexit: Eddie Dempsey and the Divided Left

The charge that Eddie is somehow “far-right”, “racist”, or a “Tommy Robinson apologist” is absurd and unconvincing. Eddie has frequently put his body on the line to fight fascists on the streets and has, for example, supported Black Lives Matter rallies, a fact which his denouncers cynically ignore.

Eddie is right to say that many workers hate the liberal Left; academic research in many deindustrialised communities – including that profiled here on The Full Brexit – has clearly demonstrated this. Eddie is also right that they have good reason to do so: their sense of abandonment and betrayal, particularly by the Labour party, is firmly rooted in reality.
