LEAVE EU Slammed As ‘Far-Right’ By Labour MP
Labour MP for Ilford North, Wes Streeting has launched an extraordinary attack on Leave EU, backed by former UKIP donor Arron Banks, is one of the leading campaign organisations for Brexit. He told that BBC:
Leave.EU are sending out tweets that are entirely unrelated to the European referendum.
I think they’re now a far-right organisation trying to stir up hatred and division between different communities.
Mr Streeting, who is co-Chair of a Parliamentary group on Islam, was responding to a now-deleted tweet Leave EU sent out about Islam in London. It referred to the capital as “Londonistan” and featured a photo of Mayor Sadiq Khan alongside disputed claims about mosques and churches.
The organisation, however, hit back, a spokesman said:
(Wes Streeting) would say that wouldn’t he? It’s a well-worn path by the left when they don’t want to talk about an issue.
As for the Muslim issue, no-one is allowed to talk about it and won’t for fear of being labelled racist by the likes of him.
It is indeed a well-worn leftist debating tactic to close down free speech and open discussion by insulting the speaker (calling them ‘racist’/’far-right’) rather than debating the facts. Labour is all three monkeys rolled into one. Its dangerous ignorance must not be allowed to stifle open debate.
