Len McCluskey: It’s an inconvenient truth. ‘We lost the referendum’

It’s an inconvenient truth. ‘We lost the referendum’

Len McCluskey lays it bare for the Labour MPs that cannot accept the result of the referendum.

“It’s an inconvenient truth to some people but we lost we lost the referendum and therefore having lost at referendum it’s why Labour just a year later in 2017 adopted a manifesto that Tom Watson and other Remainers embraced and said, “yes we will fight on this platform and the platform they fought on was that we would take Britain out of the European Union now they seem to have forgotten all about that.”

Asked for confirmation of what Len McCluskey wanted was to leave European Union with a better deal Len stated:

I believe that if we haven’t left by the 31st of October that we should respect the 2016 referendum which means leaving Europe but on a deal, it’s not the end of the world providing you can replace coming out with the type of deal that protects jobs and Unites the nation.

Listen to Len McCluskey press play…

Labour’s Brexit manifesto 2017  Labour accepts the referendum result and a Labour government will put the national interest first.

It is estimated that up to 5 million Labour voters, voted to leave the European Union in the 2016 referendum. The only six constituencies Labour Lost in the 2017 General election where Leave constituencies, two-thirds of all Labour constituencies are leave supporting constituencies.


In 2017 Keir Starmer made an emotionally charged speech in the house of commons, he accepted the facts about the referendum on behalf of the entire Labour Party stating:

“We lost the referendum. Yes, the result was close. Yes, there were lies and half-truths—none worse than the false promise of an extra £350m a week for the NHS.

“Yes, technically the referendum is not legally binding. But the result was not technical; it was deeply political, and politically the notion that the referendum was merely a consultation exercise to inform Parliament holds no water.”

This is literally the ultimate betrayal

Labour is walking into the political wilderness of lost causes by following the likes of Tom Watson along with his puppet masters such as Peter Mandelson who run the so-called people’s vote. Meet the suits behind the ‘People’s Vote Campaign’ and ‘Open Britain’ LINK

The uncompromising position of some in the remain camp who refuse to accept life outside the EU are becoming like the proverbial drowning man, they are dragging the Labour Party down with them.

Watson it seems is prepared to do anything to both remain within the EU and destroy the Corbyn project. The latest trick is to call for an alliance with the pro-austerity, pro-fracking and pro-privatisation Lib Dem leader, Jo Swinson, rather than pursue a general election to install Jeremy Corbyn into 10 Downing Street.
