Labour has betrayed its voters and Corbyn has abandoned his principles with new EU plan


Published Aug 27, 2017

Labour’s new plan to remain in the EU and allow free movement of people ‘for as long as necessary’ is a betrayal of the British people, said UKIP today.

“Jeremy Corbyn has finally capitulated to the Blairites and abandoned his principles of 30 years”, said UKIP interim leader Steve Crowther.

“I have always held Mr Corbyn to be a deluded man of principle. He is now just deluded, and a hostage to Keir Starmer and the Blairites who are determined to keep the UK inside the corporatist cabal that is the EU.

“The Labour Party has just betrayed the 17.4 million people who voted for Brexit, the 70% of the British people who now want to see it delivered without delay, the 4 million Labour voters whovoted for Brexit, and the 1.5 million UKIP voters who voted for him this year because they believed that he would stick to his word.

“It’s no coincidence that this screaming U-turn comes only four days before Tony Blair is due to visit his‘good friends’ on the EU’s negotiating team – presumably to assure them of Labour’s willingness to raise the white flag at the earliest opportunity”.
