Fighting the Remoaner Corner

Despite the fact that Labour’s success is in part due to tactical voting for Labour, it seems that Corbyn, Thornberry et al are going to conveniently ignore this as they pursue their “Jobs led Brexit”.  How they intend to achieve this while leaving the single market is another question (ho, ho, ho).

They claim that People voted for immigration controls and that therefore we must leave the single market.  If this was true they would have a point.

HOWEVER it is wrong on two points.

1st.

 Leave campaigned on a Norway type agreement and on staying in the Single Market.  By it’s very nature a Norway type agreement includes Freedom Of Movement 

2nd.

Independent research shows that the majority of people are willing to accept Freedom of Movement if it allows access to the Single Market. (see also here).

 

That the referendum (a simple in /out choice) gave a mandate to stop Freedom of Movement and leave the single market is at best a misrepresentation but at worst a lie.  And the Tory’s and Labour should both know that.  So should everyone else.  The reason this lie has taken hold, even in the minds of some Remainers, is that the Leave dominated press has been repeating the same lie again, and again and again.  It is up to us to repeat the truth, again and again and again.  Leaving the single market will cost the UK and is NOT mandated.

Share this post, get the data out there.  It’s not just opinion, it’s FACT.

Tories and Labour Manifestos – Neither Factor In Brexit

Personally I believe the LEAVE vote to be illegitimate at worst and only advisory at best.  HOWEVER if you accept the Leave vote as (that popular, most used by despots, phrase) “the will of the people”.  These are the questions that I believe should be asked….and no one is.


 

  • Given that Vote Leave Director Dominic Cummings wrote in January 2017 in the Spectator that vote Leave would not have been successful without the NHS £350m lie1, and

  • given that influential Leave campaigners Nigel Farage, Daniel Hannan, Owen Patterson, Luke Johnson, Matthew Elliot and Arron Banks denied that Leave was threatening to leave the single market and regularly named Norway (with freedom of movement, paying into EU institutions and in the single market) as a successful model the UK could emulate2, and

  • given that a poll on June 16th for the Adam Smith Institute found 2 to 1 support for a Norway style option3 (with nearly half of leave voters wanting it considered also), also supported by BMG research for the independent4 and

  • given that the treasury’s own investigations predict a significant deleterious effect to the UK economy, particularly if we leave the single market 5, 6

why are you not pursuing a Norway style agreement and instead rushing head long into an extremely damaging, and in terms of immigration impossible to implement, hard Brexit?
