Jeremy Corbyn’s announcement just before Christmas that Labour would push ahead with Brexit if they won a General Election and not give people the vote that a majority now say they want has seen a rush of resignations from Labour and new members for the Lib Dems.
Corbyn has never made any secret of being a Brexiter – he’s opposed the EU for the last 40 years. But by saying he’ll ignore the wishes of Labour members, Labour supporters and the voters at large, he’s now made clear that he has no interest in listening to his party.
The announcement has seen many Labour members cut up their membership cards, often posting a picture of the card on Twitter with the hashtag #CutTheCard.
Many are now joining the Liberal Democrats, as the only major UK-wide party campaigning for the will of the people to be respected by holding a People’s Vote to break the parliamentary deadlock between the only options on the table: no-deal, May’s deal or remaining in the EU.19 Comments
