Bill Esterson, the Labour Shadow Trade Minister deserves a cunting. He was on Radio Five Live today, being interviewed by Emma Barnett, who royally skewered the useless twat over Labour’s position on the Customs Union and the Single Market. Five times she asked the waffling twat if Labour would the keep the UK inside the Single Market and the Customs Union, or whether we would leave. Five times, Esterson’s response was, “we will have the same relationship, blah blah blah”.
To be honest, I was surprised that the BBC would allow one of its beloved Labour front benchers to be roasted in such a way. In fact, I fully expect Emma Barnett to be removed any day now. It was a performance that even Andrew Neil would struggle to match. She made Esterson look a bigger moron than the Abbottapotamus. And that takes some doing.
Apparently, Corbyn is in “General Election” mode. Expect lots of staged meetings with ‘ordinary’ voters, who are in no way connected to the Labour Party. Also expect lots of seditious talk about “bringing down the government”. If this is the calibre of the Labour front bench, then I really hope they’re never voted into government. If they are, this country will be the European version of Venezuela within 12 months. That’s assuming that there isn’t a civil war before then.
