And here is a piece I wrote in the Far-Right Guardian today, in which I fully support the very wise proposal of Jonathan Steele that Labour should abandon any remaining pretence of supporting Brexit – whether Hard, Soft or half-baked [not a bad little joke there, eh friends! And to think that Hard-Right elements claim that we on the Progressive Left have no sense of humour!] – and should instead literally come out of the Far-Right Pandora’s Box with all guns blazing, all the while nailing its true colours to the mast and taking the Good Ship Labour – literally – up the creek, from where it can storm the Brexit House of Cards, which is literally no more than a viciously Hard-Right Paper Tiger dressed in a Lone Trojan Wolf’s clothing!
As ever, I’ve provided a link to the original article and my comment, along with any replies to it, below this piece.
Be bold Labour: promise to abandon this ruinous Brexit
Well said, Jonathan. Your analysis of this particular situation is as spot-on as it always is.
Friends! Labour’s electoral unpopularity – which in any case is a Hard-Right LIE peddled by the Far-Right Murdoch-controlled Monopoly Media, e.g. Our BBC – is because it is not nearly pro-EU enough!
As Jonathan so wisely points out, a full 48% of voters supported Our EU last June. And as extensive polling evidence, painstakingly garnered by one of the world’s most reliable and authoritative psephological experts, i.e. me, has repeatedly shown, not one single person who voted for Our EU last June has changed their minds.
Furthermore, this same polling evidence shows, hearteningly, that the numbers of Our 48% have been swelled by – literally – huge numbers of that tiny handful of 17,410,742 bigots who disobeyed the firm orders of Our Experts last June, and viciously voted against Our EU, and all because they were deceived by the LIES on the side of a racist omnibus!
Indeed, the numbers of these defectors are so huge, it is rather surprising that the 48% are still only referred to as “the 48%”. Surely, by now, that number should be a lot bigger – say, 52%? Ah, but no: as we Remainers know, 52% is not actually a majority.
Anyway, as Jonathan so wisely implies, the answer to all Labour’s problems – which do not in any case exist – is simple:
Full-blooded, unconditional support for Our EU, with a firm commitment to oppose Brexit all the way.
Such a policy would, I am quite sure, make Labour as electorally popular as the Greens and the Liberal Democrats put together. And would guarantee that the result of the General Election is – literally – a landslide.
