Remain Leaflet Blames Leave: “Jo Cox’s Murder is Only the Start”

remain2

This pro-Remain literature personally targeting Leave campaigner Kate Hoey has landed on doormats in Brixton, Vauxhall and Kennington the last 24 hours. They have clearly taken a leaf-let out of Will Straw’s book, directly blaming “the Leave campaign” for Jo Cox’s death:

“The Leave campaign’s anti-immigrant rhetoric has stoked the British public’s fears to the point that we now find ourselves in a country riven by hate. History tells us that scapegoating those we think are not like us always has terrible consequences. Jo Cox’s tragic murder is possibly only the start.”

The new reasoned, respectful debate lasted not even 48 hours…

Déjà Vu: Rehashed Remain Letter Coming Tomorrow

This is the template letter being sent round FTSE businesses by Downing Street, lined up for a story in tomorrow’s papers. Feel familiar? It’s very much the same old stuff we heard last month:

“We own and run more than — businesses, from micro companies to the FTSE 100.

We know our firms are stronger in Europe. Our reasons are straightforward: businesses and their employees benefit massively from being able to trade inside the world’s largest single market without barriers. As business people, we are always looking to the future – and a future inside the European Union is where we see more opportunities for investment, growth and new jobs….

Britain leaving the EU would mean uncertainty for our firms, less trade with Europe and fewer jobs. Britain remaining in the EU would mean the opposite – more certainty, more trade and more jobs. EU membership is good for business and good for British jobs. That’s why, on June 23rd, we back Britain remaining in the EU.”

It didn’t exactly work when they tried it a few weeks ago…

Will Young Climbs Aboard Boris’s Vote Leave Bus

will young

Evergreen Pop Idol crooner Will Young is famous for hits like 2003’s “Leave right now”. It looks like he will be getting on Vote Leave’s bus on the Long and Winding Road when he takes over the big red battle bus later this week. Conspiratorial pro-Remain types needn’t have Suspicious Minds, though – Young isn’t going to Light Leave’s Fire – he’s just using the bus for his journey to Glastonbury on June 25. The singer won’t be making significant Changes, other than taking off all the Vote Leave stickers.

Will has so far stayed out of the referendum. There’s still time to back Leave – Don’t Let me Down Will…

Will Straw Ordered Remain to Attack Leave Over Jo Cox Death

wil-straw-jo-cox

Remain campaign director Will Straw sent the above email to the Stronger In mailing list yesterday. The thinking behind it is revealed in a recording of a conference call, obtained by Guido, which took place yesterday afternoon. Straw told Remain campaigners that voters had been “pulled up short” by the murder of Jo Cox, and that Stronger In should now attack the Leave side for creating “division and resentment”. Straw says they should respond to Cox’s death – “the new context that we’re in” – by claiming only they represent “a decent, tolerant” Britain.

“We need to recognise that people have been pulled up short by Jo Cox’s death and it is now time to make a very positive case for why we want to be in the European Union… to call out the other side for what they have done to stir division and resentment in the UK. That is something we must all do… This is what we think is the closing argument of the campaign, reflecting all the arguments that we have been setting out for many months but also the new context that we’re in. What we want to say is people should vote Remain on Thursday for more jobs, lower prices, workers’ rights, stronger public services and a decent, tolerant United Kingdom.”

Fair to say campaigning is well and truly back under way…

Audience member: “What I don’t understand is with all these experts that you’ve got saying we should stay in, why the British public isn’t more convinced, why is Brexit in the lead?”

Cameron: “Well, I think people have found this debate, and all the facts and the figures, perhaps quite confusing.

Piers Corbyn Explains Why Jezza is Wrong on Workers’ Rights

Jeremy Corbyn today tells Labour supporters in Yorkshire to vote Remain to “protect workers across Europe”. In the new film “Lexit: The Movie”, produced by Labour Leave, Jezza’s brother Piers demolishes that argument:

“The idea that the European Union is a happy-clappy haven for workers rights is complete nonsense… We do not need an unelected bureaucracy to tell us, “ok, you can have these rights”.
