BREAKING NEWS: 50+ Labour Brexit Rebels?
Jeremy Corbyn is facing a potentially devastating backbench rebellion following his Brexit flip-flop.
London’s Evening Standard is quoting one Labour MP as saying as many as 50 of his colleagues are willing to defy Corbyn and vote with the government when it tables its Great Repeal Bill. Many are said to represent Leave-voting constituencies. Somewhat ironically, the rebels complain of a high-handed decision made without “consulting the Parliamentary Labour Party”.
Kate Hoey, a staunch Brexit supporter and Labour MP for Vauxhall told the Evening Standard:
To vote against the Repeal Bill is to vote against the will of the British people
Quite right Kate! It is a shame many of her colleagues and indeed the ‘Dear Leader’ himself don’t understand that! UKIP branches should keep a careful eye on which division lobby their local MP goes through and ruthlessly shame the traitors who defy the will of the British people.
