Labour MP Kate Hoey argues that Jeremy Corbyn, who for many years was a fellow left-wing Eurosceptic, will regret taking the Labour Party to a more pro-EU position.

‘He had a real opportunity to be absolutely clear, as he originally was, that we were going to leave, we wanted to get a good deal, but we have to get out… He will regret this… It’s upsetting because we’ve seen a different Jeremy Corbyn on this.’

During the 2017 General Election, Labour vowed to respect the Brexit vote, but it has since started to advocate a re-run of the referendum. Hoey blasts the ‘zealot Remainers’ in her party – ‘the Keir Starmers… will do anything to stop Brexit’.

Representing the vast bulk of non-Guardian reading Labour voters who voted OUT, most not living in the London latter bubble of course.

I voted twice for Corbyn. Once my Union vote then paid £25 to join Labour. Libertarian Socialist from Glasgow, working class. I’m voting Conservative. I can’t believe it. Labour should. Take care….

20/20 hindsight. For sure.
Labour’s devotion to their middle class base, that the Leave/Labour voters up north were expendable because their vote can always be relied on… Only a mistake those with contempt would make.
But you see that Momentum crowd… that’s meant to be the future of the party. Who would vote for that? They are nuts.
