On the other side, only Kate Hoey and John Mann spoilt the party for Labour (plus ex-Labour MPs Ian Austin and Ivan Lewis). Big thanks to the Labour Leavers who, despite their misgivings, decided to put their constituents first.

Corbyn now reminds of a captain, solemnly going down on his sinking ship. His loyal crew, other deckhands, and the captain of the ship that skuttled his is cheering him on. It’s all desperately sad to witness.

I thought @Fox_Claire said it right: we Brexiteers would all be delighted if Boris Johnson gave us Brexit, as we would’ve been if Theresa May (or Jeremy Corbyn) gave us Brexit. But with the Tories we’ve already been let down once so we are going to keep on pushing till we get it.

Wonderful article on @HuffPostUK by my colleague Brendan. We have deserted our Leave voters & traditional working-class supporters. ‚Deserted‘ is the right word.

Backing A Second Referendum Could Finish Labour At The Ballot Box

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.

Labour as we knew it is no more

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.

09.07.2019 - 18:17 [ Labour Leave ‏/ Twitter ]

The announcement from .@jeremycorbyn and @UKLabour today means that Labour is now a remain party and that means one thing. We have lost 5million Labour Leave voters, possibly 100 MPs will lose their seats and Jeremy has lost the next general election

Brexiteer warns of devastating consequences for Labour as ‚delusional‘ Remainers take over

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.”

The scandal of Paul Embery’s sacking

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.

14.06.2019 - 10:12 [ Labour Leave ‏/ Twitter ]

Solidarity .@PaulEmbery you are a fantastic union official, a voice for working class people and. True democrat. We stand with you in solidarity and support.

WATCH | The late Bob Crow exposes the truth about the anti-democratic EU & demands Brexit on behalf of British workers ? What a far cry from today’s trade unions, where the likes of @PaulEmbery are barred from office

This is absolutely outrageous. Solidarity with you My dear friend and fellow Democrat .@PaulEmbery Its a scandal.

This is a shameful and intolerant decision. Paul has fought hard for better pay and conditions for firefighters for twenty years. Please show your solidarity with Paul Embery.

I am disappointed to report that I have been kicked off the national executive of my union – @fbunational – and banned from office for two years as a consequence of my speech at the ‚Leave Means Leave‘ rally outside parliament in March.

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

„There can be no democratic choice against the European treaties“, Juncker neatly crystallises the EU’s understanding of democratic votes and referendums, namely – they mean nothing. And the EU has shown that time and time again. #progressive #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.

21.05.2019 - 16:03 [ Paul Embery, Blue Labour / Twitter ‏ ]

One of the things you learn after a couple of decades of political activity on the Left is that many who claim to be passionate supporters of freedom of expression don’t really mean it.

24.04.2019 - 16:25 [ Eddie Dempsey ‏/ Twitter ]

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.

Today was meant to be independence day. Now it is the day we were betrayed. Join the Brexiteer rally in Parliament Square from 4pm.

The Full Brexit: Launch of the ‚Transforming Britain After Brexit‘ Tour

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.

One of the joys of following politics over the coming months will be witnessing the reaction of the 11 defectors as it slowly dawns on them that, far from representing ‚millions‘, they represent no-one. Their brand of metropolitan liberal ‚centrism‘ is dying fast. Thank God.

10.02.2019 - 14:52 [ Socialists for Britain ‏/ Twitter ]

Dear Remainers, We voted to leave. We did not vote to be members of the Single Market, EEA or the Customs Union. The Brexit vote was not a “Right Wing” vote. It was a vote against the devil take the hindmost economic system that the EU keeps us locked in. Cheers, 52% #Lexit

Why No Deal Is the Real Deal: Brexit and the Politics of the Interregnum

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.
