Poll by Opinium for Sunday’s Observer: Con 37% Lab 22% Lib Dem 17% Brexit 12% Green 4% Second referendum strategy failing dismally for Labour. Heartland vote ebbing away. All utterly predictable. When will the middle-class liberals and Toytown revolutionaries start listening?

The Labour Party was plunged into civil war again this evening as a veteran MP revealed he is quitting the Commons to take up a full-time role as the government’s anti-semitism tsar

Labour’s Brexit shambles: The Party’s laughable strategy is alienating all its voters

Having been a Labour party member for the best part of a quarter of a century, I want my party to win the next election. So I take no pleasure in saying that Labour’s current strategy (such as it is) around Brexit is a half-baked, shambolic mess.

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.

It is my judgement that sufficient Labour MPs will vote to respect the referendum and stop Parliament from revoking.

Any MP who votes for this Bill will be showing more loyalty to the European Union than to the United Kingdom

Jeremy Corbyn has sought the support of Tory MPs to form a national government. Ramsay MacDonald was the last Labour Leader to enter into government with Tories. At the subsequent election, Labour was devastated and lost 225. #NoNationalUnityGovernment

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.

09.07.2019 - 18:40 [ Kevin Barron,Member of Parliament / Twitter ]

Whilst I remain an MP I will never support a second referendum in any form, the decision to leave the EU was made in 2016 and we should respect that!

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.

14.06.2019 - 09:58 [ Blue Labour ‏/ Twitter ]

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.

14.06.2019 - 09:55 [ Paul Embery, Blue Labour / Twitter ]

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.

More below.

„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

Even if the next Tory leader keeps no deal on the table, Labour must not block Brexit

Labour MPs need to take a view, knowing where we are now, on both what is best for the country and what is most likely to hold together the party’s vital coalition of support between mostly Remain-orientated liberal-minded middle-class people and the largely Leave-leaning industrial working-class voters who have long been Labour’s electoral bedrock. Maybe reconsidering no deal would be the right thing for Labour MPs to consider on both counts.

29.05.2019 - 07:13 [ Brendan Chilton ‏/ Twitter ]

Outside the M25…. Brexit Party to the left of them. Brexit Party to right of them. Brexit Party to the front of them. Into the valley of death rode the Labour Party.

29.05.2019 - 05:03 [ Brendan Chilton ‏/ Twitter ]

Labour now looks set to back a second referendum, with the option to remain and Labour would campaign to remain. This is suicidal- but hey, London and Brighton will be happy. Labour starting down the path of other left parties- abandoning the core. Its a perilous route.

28.05.2019 - 05:41 [ Gloria De Piero / theGuardian.com ]

This isn’t about Brexit. Backing remain now would wreck Labour

Trying to overturn the referendum result would alienate voters who trust us and end all chance of winning a general election

Mainstream Media rarely have .@labourleave people on so here are my few thoughts on the #EUelections2019 #Labour #BrexitParty please share.

27.05.2019 - 04:20 [ Blue Labour ‏/ Twitter ]

The idea that anyone would see these extraordinary results for the Brexit Party and jump to the conclusion that Labour should back a second referendum is madness. Labour must stand for working people or we stand for nothing.

22.05.2019 - 05:01 [ Labour Leave ‏/ Twitter ]

May now offering MPs second referendum if they vote for her colony agreement. This government is just beyond shameless. This whole stitch up really is deplorable to watch unfold and will only increase resentment and alienation among leave voters #brexit

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.

13.05.2019 - 07:55 [ Brendan Chilton, Director @LabourFutureUK ‏/ Twitter ]

So many calls/emails from .@labourleave supporters telling me they will not be voting .@UKLabour in the #EUElections2019 but will instead support @brexitparty_uk- Labour- we are losing our core vote fast- For god sake! Ignore the remoaners- They are at 2%!!! Leave voters count!

Brexiteer compares Theresa May’s leadership to ‚DICTATORSHIP‘ in huge rant – ‚Time is UP‘

The Labour MP accused the Conservative Party rules of forcing a form of „dictatorship“ on Parliament as nothing can be done to oust the Prime Minister before the end of the year. Ms Hoey urged Theresa May to resign from her post as soon as possible in the best interest of the country and to help find a solution to the Brexit impasse.

06.05.2019 - 17:28 [ Labour Leave / Twitter ]

Only let Remainers speak! The sheer authoritarianism of the Remain elite never ceases to shock. In fairness to the media, they’ve been having a damn good go at this anyway. OFCOM has abandoned any pretence of ensuring news neutrality, as has the BBC. #brexit

20.04.2019 - 15:24 [ Daniel Neun ‏/ Twitter ]

To leave the peoples with no choice other than right-wingers and / or the second US on the planet is part of the paneuropean dialectic tactics. @UKLabour, @TheGreenParty THEY are the traitors. So let THEM sneer, keep your values and make it better! @labourleave @GreenLeavesorg

20.04.2019 - 13:59 [ Daniel Neun / Twitter ]

Do we have to carry the British Left up the stairs, too? You have no party! So do one! That’s ok in a democracy once in a century, you know!? Don’t copy the utterly fatalist Left in Germany, blindly following their paneuropean ideologues. @PaulEmbery @BrendanChilton @LeftBrexit

14.04.2019 - 13:31 [ Brendan Chilton, Director @LabourFutureUK / Twitter ]

Labour in the 2010s made the fatal assumption that UKIP would only damage the Tories and we’d come through the middle…just a plea (not that the party has ever listened to those of us in touch with working class opinion)…let’s not make that same mistake with the Brexit Party.
