Cable: Either Corbyn backs Brexit or he backs the people

Responding to the defeat of Jeremy Corbyn’s vote of no confidence in the Conservative Government by 325 votes to 306 votes, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:

Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party cannot procrastinate any longer. Either he backs Brexit or he backs the people.

He has a responsibility, to get off the fence and provide some effective opposition.

The only serious option is what the Liberal Democrats have been calling for since the 24th June 2016, a people’s vote with the option to remain in the EU.

  • Corbyn is effectively Britain’s Jean-Luc Mélenchon (with scary overtones of Marine Le Pen on Brexit and free movement), to Vince’s Macron. A man who opposes the sensible and will not oppose the crazy. Just like Mélenchon, Corbyn is rallying his far left cartel of upper middle class university left, privileged public sector, rentamobs and blue collar union roughnecks to protest against every single sensible form of public service modernisation whether under Blair, Cameron, Clegg and now May, whilst failing to protest against the biggest crime in the UK’s history – Brexit.

    I only hope that the current tranche of graduates coming through realise that Corbyn has nothing to offer them, and that trying to protect the gold plated conditions of POA, NAPO, Unite, RMT and ASLEF members, or railing against sensible flexible employment ala the IWGB has nothing in common with the concerns of future young professionals, and is just about filling the boots of union militants.
