Deal pledge deceitful
07 June, 2019
• THE failure of the Labour Party is lamentable. By pleasing everyone they have pleased no one.
Logically, it should follow its members (for a second referendum) and then persuade its Brexit-supporting voters that if they follow Nigel Farage they are likely to end up with no NHS (to be demolished in a trade deal with Donald Trump) and smaller welfare benefits.
People knew what they voted for: a deal, described, wrongly, as the “easiest negotiation in history” which would give us our “cake and eat it” leaving us better off “out” than “in”.
That has proved a fallacy and a deceit.
