On Thursday night, he attempted to lead a 49 MP revolt against Brexit, to table amendments to the Queen’s Speech, which resulted in Cor-blimey canning 3 of his Shadow Cabinet. Fortunately, he failed to push through a ‘soft’ Brexit. i.e NO BREXIT.
This is the same MP who for two years sat on the backbenches after he resigned as Shadow Business Secretary in 2015 due to differences with Cor-blimey. Yet, after Labour’s better than expected performance in the General Election he offered to put himself forward for a Shadow Cabinet post. He was not taken up on his offer.
So let me get this right. Did he pull this stunt as revenge for not being offered a post? Or did he plan to act as a Trojan Horse if he was appointed?
A liar.. er….lawyer..by trade and a student of the B.Liar Academy of Political Skulduggery and Weasel Words he has been trained well. That remoaning, fantasist (never of the real world), Rowling woman would be proud of his work, most worthy of the darker elements of Hogwarts.
This ‘crime’ scene bears the grubby fingerprints of Teflon Tone, The Prince of Darkness and A. Scumball all over it. The Unholy Trinity is never far from the action where either anti-Brexit attacks or sabotaging the Labour Party are concerned. It would seem they are gearing up to commit fresh attrocities against Brexit.
I know this is not a popular view here – defending Cor-blimey – but at least he did not cave into his mutineers and took decisive action against the rebels in his Shadow Cabinet. He is respecting the will of the people on the Brexit issue (at least) and I suspect, upholding his own deeply held anti-E.U beliefs.
At this rate, what with Mavis May wobbling and folding to E.U demands like a cheap suit while surrounded by the sniping Lib Dumb and SNP, lackey, brown nosers of the EU, Cor-blimey may turn out to be the only political leader who would actually see Brexit through to its democratic conclusion – a genuine exit.
These are most strange times we live in.
