I don’t usually post at weekends and ….. I know I know …… you wouldn’t expect me to write something in praise of Dear Jeremy. But his decisive action in removing Owen Smith from his shadow cabinet of senior politicians because he supported calls for a second referendum on Brexit is worthy of “some” praise. Hypocritical Jeremy, because Smith didn’t fit the increasing left wing commie loving hard liners underwritten by Momentum? Certainly not ….. but only if he now heavily censures his Backbencher Chukka Umunna. Here’s why:
“Early every Wednesday morning, 15 people leave their homes and travel separately to a secret location in central London, where, over cups of Indian-style filter coffee and plates of cookies, they plot to stop Brexit. Those who gather, bleary-eyed, in the meeting room are a mix of women and men, old and young. They include politicians and activists, both professional and little-known, though their identities haven’t been formally released. The one thing that unites them is opposition to Theresa May’s plan for Britain to make a clean break from the European Union.”
Guess who chairs this secretive clandestine group?
“Their aim: engineer a new referendum so the British people can reconsider Brexit before it’s too late. “I do not want to see Brexit happen. I think it will destroy the futures of the next generation in this country,” says Chuka Umunna, the charismatic, 39-year-old member of Parliament who chairs the weekly gathering. “But it‘s not about what I think—and shouting ‘Stop Brexit’ is not a political strategy. I want the people to get a vote.”
Both of these quotes are taken from the Bloomberg article, Inside The Secret Plot to Reverse Brexit, an article as sinister as anything you could possibly read about elected politicians who are supposed to support and defend the national interest. The fact that there are people like this in positions of political power, people who campaign for something different (which is ok) but then act in a way that weakens the country’s position and standing, truly staggers me. But I will still vote Labour at the next election, because just like the pyrophitic plants that need a fire to regenerate, Corbyn supporters need a taste of fire to understand!
