On the biggest issue in British politics, Labour promised one thing before the election and then did the complete opposite afterwards. The last party that performed such an outrageous U-turn was the Liberal Democrats over tuition fees, and they were rightly destroyed in the following election.
Labour is now possibly facing that same oblivion.
As of this morning, just under five million Labour Leave voters are homeless. I’m sure The Brexit Party will be delighted.
Today is a tragic day in the Labour Party’s history, and a fatal day for British democracy. It is, potentially, the beginning of the end of the Labour Party as we know it.
Mr Chilton launched a furious attack on Remainers within the Labour Party and added: “And the message they are pushing down the Leader’s ear is that ‘we need to come out for a referendum and we need to campaign for Remain’. They are delusional.
“And what we need actually is for the Labour Party to accept the outcome of the referendum and go for Brexit and to articulate its vision for what the country should look like after we leave.
„And I think if the country did that then we would clean up.”
Paul Embery @ Leave Means Leave March, 29th March.
Paul Embery has spent 20 years as a dedicated trade-union official, fighting for better rights, conditions and pay for firefighters with the Fire Brigades Union. But today he revealed that he has been kicked off the union’s national executive and banned from office for two years.
Why? Because he delivered a pro-Brexit speech at the Leave Means Leave rally outside parliament on the day we were supposed to leave the EU.

Today, we are launching Transforming Britain After Brexit, a national Brexit tour. The tour is organised by Labour Leave, Trade Unionists Against the EU, the European Research Network on Social and Economic Policy, Polity Books, and The Full Brexit and includes dates in Coventry (4th), Manchester (5th), Liverpool (8th), London (25th), and Durham (28th).
Our aim with the tour is to promote arguments critical to the EU from a Left perspective that we feel have not been put forward enough in the British media. Economist and former Syriza member Professor Costas Lapavitsas is a key speaker at each event, and will be discussing his book The Left Case Against the EU.
Great speakers: @C_Lapavitsas @graceblakeley @anshu_64 @ExittheEU @DrLeeJones Free
State aid is not permitted and nationalization is all but impossible under the rigorous competition law enshrined in the Lisbon Treaty of 2007. Sixteen of Labour’s core manifesto commitments would be illegal under EU Law. Labour campaigned in 2017 as if Britain was already out of the EU—and did far better than expected. Some commentators even filed the Labour Party under the dreaded heading of “populism.” The truth is that the EU makes democratic politics very difficult.
