MPs walking the tightrope -

Seems over a dozen Labour MPs ignored Corbyn's three line whip on the EU withdrawal bill, and either voted with the Gov or abstained.  Most represent pro-Brexit constituencies, so know which side of the bread is buttered.    Meanwhile, Corbyn accused the PM of a constitutional power grab in adopting Henry VIII powers in order to speed up the process of adopting EU laws into British law. thus avoiding the disruptive machinations of Labour Remoaners determined to wreck any rational process of exiting the EU.   Corbyn is allegedly planning a "power grab" of his own, with rule changes at Labour's Party Conference, aided and abetted by his Momentum Red Guards, in order to remove moderates from Parliament, so pot calling kettle.         :ph34r:.

It amazes me how many of these Labour MPs & the party faithful are pro European. Seeing as they are the party of the working man ,bruvver, you would expect these champions of jobs for all to be fighting tooth & nail to get as many jobs back to Blighty as possible to supply good jobs for the working man pre & post Brexit.

The problem is Dave, as with all politics and especially the Labour Party:  it all comes down to dogma rather than common sense or even representation. MPs straight out of UNI into research jobs, then into a safe seat, without the slightest notion of how traditional Labour supporters think, let alone live, pontificate on subjects coloured by their trendy peers. The majority of MPs are Remoaners, who completely mis-read the public mood over Brexit, and now arrogantly assume it was the "uneducated, racist and xenophobic" masses that got it wrong, and that rational judgement belongs to them alone.  Ironically to a point they may be right, as it was some of those same masses who evidently voted them back into Parliament at the G/Election.         :ph34r:

You have to take a very long look into the mists of history to find when the Labour Party ever represented the interests of the working man. The government has taken the only logical step in taking all EU legislation and renaming it UK legislation, which can now be adapted to our needs as a nation independent of the EU without having to refer to the Brussels beureaucrats.

The champagne socialist inside the M25 bubble, like Shaka Unnuna;  criticising the detached comments of Rees-Mogg on food banks, while wading into regular restaurant meals at over £50 a pop.   All of them taking regular pay rises over the time that essential public sector workers have been capped on 1%.   Time the stables were cleaned out, if the penny ever drops with the electorate.          :ph34r:
