Corbyn: Dave’s Deal “Irrelevant, Theatrical Sideshow”

Jeremy Corbyn tonight confirms Labour’s schizophrenic position on the referendum: he thinks Cameron’s renegotiation is “irrelevant” and a “theatrical sideshow“, yet will blindly campaign to Remain “regardless of the outcome of the talks“. Eurosceptic Jez speaks the truth:

“The negotiations David Cameron is conducting on Britain’s relationship with the European Union are a theatrical sideshow… David Cameron’s misnamed “emergency brake” on migrants’ in-work benefits is largely irrelevant to the problems it is supposed to address. There is no evidence that it will act as a brake on inward migration.”

Yet ‘Europhile’ Jez spins on behalf of his party:

“The Labour Party will campaign to keep Britain in Europe in the forthcoming referendum, regardless of the outcome of the talks being held in Brussels today. That is because it brings investment, jobs and protection for British workers and consumers.”

We know where Corbyn’s heart really is on the matter. He voted to stay out of the European Community in 1975, he holds the traditional Bennite view that the EU is a bosses’ and banker’s union. John McDonnell is a hard-core Eurosceptic and supporters like Owen Jones are Brexiteers. You can see which Labour MPs have previously been Outers hereThey know Dave’s deal is nonsense but they are selling out to put party, and their own positions, before country…
