CLUELESS: Keir Starmer Can’t Give One Brexit Benefit
Labour’s Brexit Minister, Keir Starmer was really put on the spot by Nick Robinson on the Andrew Marr show earlier today. He was asked by Mr Robinson to complete the sentence “Brexit will be good for Britain because…..” Mr Starmer then replied that it would be “very difficult” for him to complete the sentence as he had voted Remain in the referendum.
Pressed by Mr Robinson on why he simply did not then oppose Brexit, Mr Starmer replied:
“The Labour Party accepted that we put the referendum to the people. We got a result.
Now it was a slim result. It was a narrow majority but the question that was answered was answered. But the only question that was answered was, should we leave or not.”
Later in the interview, he refused point blank to rule out Labour supporting a second referendum:
“Well, the focus of our attention has been that there should be a meaningful vote in parliament.
Labour has simply not learnt the lessons of the local elections that its own voters do not trust them on Brexit and who can blame them with the likes of Keir Starmer in the driving seat of policy.
