Anyone who thinks the People’s vote is about a second referendum should look very closely at who is running the so called People’s Vote and to what end.
The People’s vote is probably one of the most cynical attempts to both undermine our democracy and at the same time force the Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn into an uncompromising position.
Jeremy Corbyn has rightly said from the initial result of the referendum that the Labour Party respects the result of the referendum, there has been no diversion from Jeremy Corbyn on this issue. He has relentlessly been an anchor of democracy throughout this entire process even after the failed Chicken Coup by remain MPs to remove a Eurosceptic Party Leader Corbyn stood his ground.
He has worked tirelessly to create a Labour shadow Brexit deal that in his words would make us just as well off if not better off leaving the EU.
But now the Prince of Darkness (Peter Mandelson) and the Master of spin, Alastair Campbell are undermining all of Corbyn’s hard work, but worst they are ensuring Labour will not see government under the tenure of Jeremy Corbyn.
Both these people who have openly proclaimed they work against Corbyn have convinced party members that a second referendum is possible and preferable than the desired general election that both Corbyn and John McDonnell desire.
A second referendum that will not happen and has no mechanism to make it happen would a second referendum that would still leave the Tory’s government.
The People’s vote, say, they are not attacking Jeremy Corbyn but their banners and campaign material say different. The biggest question is with so many Tories on the director’s board of Open Britain the architects of the People’s vote like Damian Green why they are not pressuring the Theresa May directly.
The real objective and not necessarily the objective of the people that support remain is to remove or stop Jeremy Corbyn by any means necessary. There is no method or mechanism to bring about a People’s vote that gift only resides within the position of prime minister. Not the opposition or the entire parliamentary membership.
May has categorically stated ‘No second referendum’ fortunately or unfortunately whichever side of the fence you sit on and has incompetent has May is she would not commit her Party to political suicide because the true reality being a People’s vote would mean exactly that.
A big question.If at conference a vote to support a Peoples vote passes do we get a second vote on the conference vote?
Who runs the People’s vote?
Just so you get a picture of who is pulling the strings here are some of the directors of Open Britain Ltd the company behind the Peoples Vote.
Peter Mandelson (Blairite), Danny Alexander (Lib Dem), Damian Green (Tory), Caroline Lucas (Green), Jim Wallace or Baron Wallace of Tankernes,(Lib Dem), Dafydd Wynne Wigley, Baron Wigley(Plaid Cymru). Will Straw (Jack Straw’s son), Roland Rudd, Blairite adviser and brother to Amber Rudd’s ex-Conservative Home secretary.
Others can be found here including a few Billionaires.
Again why is the pressure not on Theresa May after all she is a ‘remain’ Prime Minister?
Peter Mandelson, the architect of New Labour, the man that has said he is working every day to undermine Jeremy Corbyn, the Blairite peers stood up in the House of Lords to lambast their party’s leadership for backing Brexit.
It is the most deceptive move in UK politics this constant remain rhetoric from the Left or should I say from the centralist Blairites dictating the agenda of the Left.
Seriously if the entire Labour Party backed remain then what?
Electoral destruction in the 60 out of 67 seats that voted ‘leave’ that Labour MUST win to form a government
It would also cause Jeremy Corbyn’s position to be untenable; after all, he promised to respect the result of the referendum.
The Labour Party would lose millions of not just its core voters but others that see the refusal to support a referendum as anti-democratic.
The right-wing press will rip Labour to shreds:
Headlines “Labour Party – Traitors to the People”
Then the Tories will blame Labour for any bad deal due to their lack of support.
And to top it all Theresa May is the only person able to call a referendum and she will laugh while giving Labour a resounding NO.
