Remoaner Diane Abbott SLAMS Brexit Voter – “Not Representative of The Country”
Labour Shadow Home Secretary and prominent remoaner Diane Abbott has hit out at the famous Brexiteer on Question Time this week, who claimed that Labour has “stabbed working class towns in the back”.
While being interviewed on the Andrew Marr show, the hackney MP, who was the first female black MP, was shown a clip of the audience member’s short speech to which she responded that his views were “not representative of the country”, despite the fact that 52% of British people voted to leave the EU.
Referring to another Labour cabinet member, Rebecca Long-Bailey, the audience member said “The lady on the other side is supposed to be in a party that should be defending the working class communities that this town is and their Party is tending toward the Single Market.
“Which is unrestricted migration and that is what this town, overall, voted leave to stop because it damaged the working class communities.
“You’re stabbing us in the back if you’re gonna carry on with those treacherous rebels. We’ve made our decision, we know why we made it.
“I know you think we’re all thick up north, but I remember voting on my ballot paper and it said ‘leave or remain’.
“It didn’t say turn over to question two, do you want the hard-Brexit or the soft-Brexit.”
However, Diane Abbott didn’t take to kindly to this outlook of Labour’s Brexit stance, hitting back “You’ve got one clip from Question Time but I talk to colleagues who represent constituents across the country.
“What Labour voters are really concerned with is the chaos of the Tory negotiations.
“May has just lost a vote in parliament, that is what voters are concerned with.”
