Kate Hoey: Jeremy will regret backsliding on Brexit

Labour MP Kate Hoey is the latest guest on The Brendan O’Neill Show.


Topics Brexit Politics UK

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’.

I watched the podcast on YTube yesterday, I never knew much about Kate Hoey until yesterday. She’s impressive.
