I’m still struggling with the result to be honest...
Labour never lost on its policies but Brexit.. its a shame Corbyn listened to the right & Blairites in the party to hold a 2nd referendum...
Just listened to the Queen speech.. not confident going forward..
If they had gone all out for Brexit then they'd not only have succeeded in wrecking their core vote in their working class heartlands but also that of their liberal/metropolitan urban centres.
Labour backing and proposing their own version of this right wing project would have been awful and somewhat humiliating for Corbyn. Attempts to appease it were pitiful. That they even attempted to do it and not even bothering to expose the suicidal nature of it means that Corbyn will be seen in history as an enabler of this grave constitutional error.
At the end of the day, Labour are and always have been an internationalist organisation. Past Labour governments input into the EU were befitting of a party that understood it's responsibility not just to Britain but Europe and were a refreshing change to the arch imperialist, we stand alone, attitudes still found to this day in the right. Those in Labour who stood by and continued to campaign for Britain's place in the EU understood those values better than the rest.
