Labour Leave to Meet Corbyn Today

labour+leave+panel

Guido has been down to the launch of Labour Leave, where Kate Hoey reminded the room that Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell have walked through the Commons voting lobby with the party’s Eurosceptics for decades. Asked if Corbyn wanted to Leave “in his heart of hearts”, Hoey replied:

“Well, I can’t speak for Jeremy. But over the past twenty years Jeremy and John were always with us, so I’ll leave it with that.” 

A brave Quentin Letts asked: “I don’t mean to sound ungentlemanly, Kate, but where are the younger more glamorous Parliamentarians?”

Labour MP Kelvin Hopkins noted the Euroscepticism of two late socialist heroes:

“If Tony Benn and indeed Bob Crow had survived this long, I’d be proud to see them and I’d be on this platform with them” 

Intriguingly, Graham Stringer revealed he would be meeting Corbyn this afternoon to lobby him to change his mind about selling out to the Shadow Cabinet on Europe:

“It is surprising that he now want to lead a campaign which isn’t even asking for a renegotiation position… It would not surprise me if that didn’t change”

Remember, Corbyn’s sell-out position is “Labour will be campaigning in the referendum for the UK to stay in the European Union… regardless of the outcome of the Government’s renegotiation.” Looks like Labour Leave will at least have a go at getting him to stick to his principles and go nuclear on his Shadow Cabinet…

Dominic Cummings tells Damian Collins:

“You talk of ‘contempt of Parliament’. You seem unaware that most of the country feels contempt for Parliament and this contempt is growing.”
