Backlash in Labour’s key northern strongholds as Jeremy Corbyn endorses staying in a customs union with the EU

‘Jeremy Corbyn’s decision to endorse staying in a customs union with the EU provoked derision in one of Labour’s key northern strongholds yesterday. Many families in Doncaster – a town synonymous with heavy industry, mining and the railways – have backed the party for generations.

The South Yorkshire town, heavily backed Leave in the 2016 referendum, after seeing traditional industries such as coal mining and heavy engineering destroyed by Margaret Thatcher’s war on the working class and then the indistries that sprang up in the wak of that economic disaster progressively exported to low labour cost third world nations by Tony Blair’s Labour government, which simultaneously imported unskilled semi – literate immigrants, many locals feel Labour no longer represents their views.

Mother-of-two Beverley Smith, 55, a retail manager, said: “Corbyn is wrong. There’s a big wide world out there we can trade with. The people voted heavily for Brexit because they know what they want. I know quite a few who voted Conservative for the first time in the general election last year. People’s will to come out of Europe is stronger than their support for Labour.”

“So many people down south have no idea what’s going on in the North and what everyone here has to say.”

Lifelong Labour supporter Ron Wales, 77, a retired engineer, said: “He’s wrong on the customs union. I voted out – I’m a big believer in us being on our own.” Ukip supporter Nigel Berry, 59, who runs the fish stall he has worked on since he was 13, said: “I’ve seen how the EU has destroyed Britain’s fishing industry. People voted to leave completely, not to stay in in some form. Corbyn has sold out his core voters.”

Factory worker Michael Smith, 46, who is the fist in his family for generations not to work in coal mining, said: “Labour are afraid to listen to the ordinary people. Are we allowed to get what we wanted on Europe or not?’ On immigration, he added: “We’ve run out of jobs, houses, why not put our own people first?”

Robert Lowry from Newcastle said: “He’s now hinting that there could be a second referendum because people like me didn’t know what we were voting for! Does that mean that when there’s a general election that the losers can call for another election because they’re not happy with the results? Another point, look at all the remainers. Tony Blair, Clegg, Branson (who doesn’t pay tax in this country) I rest my case.”

Mark Richards in Manchester added: “Looks like a Labour MEP has just confirmed that they are also going to sign up for uncontrolled EU immigration as well, so what part of Brexit is he going to honour. I feel sorry for the Labour voters who trusted him and his manifesto as he has made total and utter fools out of them, although I wont feel sorry for them if they vote for him again. John M from Nottingham summed it up nicely, commenting: Let’s face it the days when Labour was a true working class party I knew in the 1960’s have long since gone and been replaced by a Metropolitan elite Luvvies and snowflake left wing students who’ve never done a days graft in their lives …give em a brickies trowel and they¿d think it was a garden tool.

The problem for the Labour party has been obvious since George Orwell wrote ‘The Road To Wigan Pier‘ in the 1930s. The professional socialist elite had usurped the party from its grass roots working class leaders even then. The first part of the book is a study of life in working class areas, the second part a polemic against the british class system and against the wealthy socialist do – gooders whose superior and condescending attitudes to the working class will always work to prevent true social mobility.

Over the past 50 years these upper class (‘trust fund kiddies’) and professional class socialists have taken over the higher echelons of the party (Corbyn’s childhood was spent in a mansion in rural Shropshire, the duffel coat wearing, bike riding, man – of – the – people is an act, he’s never had a real job in his life,) leading to Labour policy being focused on fashionable causes such as multiculturalism or sponsoring tyrants in African failed states, while the party has increasingly ignored the views of the people who have traditionally supported them and on whose votes they rely; the working class who beyond paying the political levy in their union subscriptions do not appear to get a look in these days.

Margeret Thatcher once said “the problem with socialism is that sooner or later they run out of other peoples money” and if we look at the current Labour leadership’s public spending plans it is clear that Corbyn ever becomes Prime Minister, being in the EU or not will be of little consequence for the younger snow flakes and their gap years, because the tsunami of capital flight from the UK as companies avoid Labour’s public ownership plans, will make even the most OTT scaremongering of Remainers about Brexit look as ignificant as a gnat’s fart in a hurricane.

Corbyn Comes Out: UK Can’t Stay in EU Single Market After Brexit

He’s been a lifelong opponent of the unemocratic, protectionist EU who has been held to ransome for a year and a half by the rabid remainmers in his party. now at last Jeremy Corvyn has come out of the closet and said there can be no half – arsed, half – in, half – out arrangements, once we leave we cannot retain membership of the single market.

After meeting the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said that after Brexit the UK cannot remain inside the European Union’s (EU) Single Market zone.

Many of Labour’s core voters support Brexit, but party activists are fanatically pro-EU and led by the shadoe cabinet spokesman on Brexit, Sir Kier SStormer, have been urging the Mr. Corbyn to campaing for the UK to remain part of the Single Market.

However, Mr. Corbyn has now stated unequivocally this is not an option. He also told party members he would not be attending a summit on the Single Market convened by the europhile Scottish National Party’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford, The Guardian reports.

The market is a free trade area, he said, but also a protectionist bloc erecting trade barriers to the rest of the world. Members are not allowed to control their own trade policy or strike trade deals – a central ambition of Brexit supporters – and are forced to accept unlimited mass migration and open borders.

While Corbyn is generally sympathetic to immigration, he has always complained that the EU’s way of imposing policies formulated by unelected bureaucrats on the elected governments of member states to be unacceptable violations of his democratic principles.

Prime Minister Theresa the Appeaser May has promised the UK will leave the Customs Union and Single Market in accord with the referendum result, but last week revealed the Tories are trying to work a typical flanker by proposing the UK could enter an almost identical Customs Union with the EU after Brexit.

Also last week, a Tory think tank claiming the support of 120 Brexit-supporting MPs, said they could block a final divorce deal unless the prime minister promised to leave the Customs Union and Single Market.

Ooer Missis – It’s Carry On Campaigning

Politicians sometimes have train – wreck interviews on live media, especially when campaigning, but in the run up to a General Election which could see her party anihilated, Labour Party home affairs spokeswoman Diane Abbot surpassed all expectations by doing three train – wreck interviews in one day.

First off, with Nick Ferrari of LBC Radio: Ferrari wanted to focus on the completely whacky election promise made by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn that if elected, his party would recruit 10,000 extra police officers , funding the project by reversing cuts to Capital Gains Tax made by the Conservatives:

When Ferrari questioned Labour’s figures, Diane Abbott struggling to explain how the party would fund the policy, started to bluster as she does whenever a question is asked that she cannot answer (Ms. Abbott does a lot of blustering).

The MP initially suggested that Labour would hire 10,000 officers for £300,000, which would would have left officers earning £30 a year.

Ms Abbott’s assessment of how many new officers would be recruited in one year ranged from 25,000 to 250,000.

TRANSCRIPT:
transcript:

Nick Ferrari: So how much would 10,000 police officers cost?

Diane Abbott: Well, if we recruit the 10,000 policemen and women over a four year period, we believe it’ll be about £300,000.

Nick Ferrari: £300,000?

Diane Abbott: Sorry, … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: 10,000 police officers? What are you paying them?

Diane Abbott: No, I mean, sorry … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: How much will they cost.

Diane Abbott: They will cost [long pause], it will cost, erm, about, about £80m.

Nick Ferrari: The £80m is the figure we use. But I don’t understand. If you divide £80m by 10,000, you get 8000.

Diane Abbott: What … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Is that what you’re going to pay these policemen and women?

Diane Abbott: No, we’re talking about a process over 4 years.

Nick Ferrari: I don’t understand. What is he or she? £80m divided by 10,000 equals £8000. So I don’t, what are these police officers going to be paid?

[papers rustle]

Diane Abbott: We will be paying them the average … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Has this been thought through?

Diane Abbott: Of course it’s been thought through!

Nick Ferrari: Where are the figures?

Diane Abbott: The figures are that the, the additional cost in year 1 when we anticipate recruiting 250,000 policemen will be £64.3m

Nick Ferrari: 250,000 policemen?

Diane Abbott: And women.

Nick Ferrari: Right. Where…? So you’re getting more than 10,000? You’re recruiting 250,000?

Diane Abbott: No, we are recruiting 2000 and perhaps 250. And the cost … (Interrupted)

Nick Ferrari: Where did 250,000 come from?

Diane Abbott: I think you said that not me.

Nick Ferrari: I can assure you – you said that figure because I wrote it down.

Diane Abbott: What I’m saying about the cost is in year 1 obviously we’re getting ready to recruit, but in year 2 the cost will be £64.3m, in year 3 the cost will be £139.1m, year 4 the cost will be £270m, and year 5 the cost will be £298m, and that can be amply covered by reversing the cuts in capital gains tax.

NEXT UP WAS AN APPEARANCE ON SKY TV’s BREAKFAST SHOW

Before we go into a transcript of the Sky interview, a little background is needed. The Labour Party, folllowing its usual campaign style of offering massive increases in public spending, and evasively mumbling something about taxing the rich when questioned bout how the extra expenditure will be funded, has already promised to spend money raised by reversing recent cuts to Capital Gains Tax (estimated at around £2bn) in a number of different areas including increased education budgets, more funding for arts, and higher welfare benefits.

SKY TRANSCRIPT – key sections

Sarah Jane Mee: Ok, but just going back, you have said that reversing cuts to capital gains tax will help arts funding schools and welfare – will that be in the manifesto fully costed?

Diane Abbott: Our policies will be fully costed, and I have to say I think it suits the Tories not to talk about the loss of 20,000 police officers, not to talk about the rise in violent crime, but to quibble about figures. Our manifesto will be fully costed and what people want to know, they want answers to their worries about the rise in violent crime.

Sarah Jane Mee: Well [the Conservatives] are saying it’s nonsensical because you’ve already spent this money when talking about other pledges – you’ve committed to – the capital gains tax – the money you’ll get from that – that £2bn – to things like schools, welfare and the arts, so you’ve already spent that money – how can you spend it on 10,000 police officers.

Diane Abbott: We’ve not actually committed that money to anything, we’ve used these huge cuts in capital gains tax, cuts which will only help the top 5%, we’ve used them to illustrate the type of places where we could get the money to fund some of our policies, but as we roll out our manifesto, you will see that each policy pledge is specifically costed, and this is a really important issue – the rise in violent crime on our streets.

Sarah Jane Mee: But you’ve made promises – Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell (Labour economic spokesman), have all stood up and said by reversing capital gains tax, we will help tackle these problems.

Diane Abbott: You will find that we haven’t specifically allocated the money. We are rolling out our manifesto, and this morning I am specifically allocating some of the £2.7bn to funding the 10,000 policemen.

One has to wonder what she will allocate it to tomorrow morning.

NOW OVER TO HER FINAL APPEANCE OF THE DAY (we hope) ON INDEPENDENT TELEVISION’S GOOD MORNING BRITAIN.

Having appeared to suggest earlier that policies already announced by Labour may never have been intended for inclusion in the party’s manifesto, or that massive tax increases would be needed to pay for them, in her next appearance abbot tries to back pedal by saying that the party is not promising anything but merely illustrating what they might do if elected. Unkind souls might suggest that if the party does not know what policies it will implement six weekes before an election they are unfit to govern by virtue of being a bunch of clueless incompetents.

GOOD MORNING BRITAIN TRANSCRIPT (key points)
The conversation has been steered by Piers Morgan to the number of times (12 according to his notes) Labour have promised to allocate this increased Capital Gains Tax revenue to specific projects:

Diane Abbott: I know you referenced that we’ve promised it, we’ve pledged it in to other areas – we’ve not pledged it in to other areas. We’ve always used it as an illustration of the type of Tory tax cut we’re going to reverse, but now as we roll out our manifesto, we’re specifically saying how we’re going to pay for the specific items in our manifesto.

Susanna Reid: This is the difference that you’re trying to make between a pledge and an illustration, because all your critics will say in August last year arts funding, Jeremy Corbyn promised money saying that that can be funded through a reversal of reductions in capital gains tax. On schools he would deal with the teacher shortage and rising class sizes by reversing the capital gains tax cut and on welfare John McDonnell, your shadow Chancellor, said that he would use the capital gains tax reversal to reverse the cuts in universal credits. So we’ve got to discount now all of those pledges and stick with this one. Is that the case?

Citizen Corbyn

On the evening news today I saw Jeremy Corbyn kicking off the Labour election campaign, giving it plenty about ‘The People’. Labour are the party of The People he said and will engage with The People and empower The People. Under his Labour government The People will come first and blah, blah, blah.
And I thought,”Yeah that’s it, he wasn’t always called Jeremy Corbyn was he? Anyone remember Jeremy (Wolfie) Smith?

Vegetarian Corbyn And Lardarse Abbott Were Lovers

As lefties carry on grizzling about Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn not singing the Royal Anthem (they don’t even know that God Save The Queen is not actually the national anthem) was yesterday a bigger story than The Conservatives voting to cut tax credits which, the loonies claim will ‘plunge thousands of families into poverty [wong, because a) we knew about that in April, and b) it will only significantly affect houseolds with annual incomes over £40k ], today’s Corbyn story is much better.

It has been revealed that weirdie beardie, vegetarian matchstick man Jezza and Tub Of Lard MP Diane Abbott were one lovers.

abbott-corbyn

We can see from the picture why the affair did not last. Jeremy is a stereotypical sandal wearing, tree hugging tofu scoffer who looks like a good meal would kill him, Diane looks likes she has enjoyed a few too many large helpings of curried goat with rice and peas, steak and chips or pie and mash.
