Trotskyist Corbyn Ally Leads Leave Campaign

nillets

Dave Nellist of the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition has loudly called for a reunion with his former parliamentary comrade Jeremy Corbyn, even offering to merge the hard-left group with Labour. Corbyn’s own sympathies clearly lie with Nellist, the Labour leader said in February:

“Dave and I worked very well together in Parliament together in the past, I have a lot of respect for him as a good community-minded person and I hope that we will get support from him in all quarters in the future.”

What’s Nellist up to now? He’s just optimistically filed the TUSC application to the Electoral Commission for the official Leave campaign designation. The old Trot has stuck to his anti-Brussels guns:

“I was elected as a Labour MP in 1983 on a manifesto that committed the party to withdrawal from the then European Economic Community (EEC). There are millions of trade unionists, young people, anti-austerity campaigners and working class voters generally who, like TUSC, still oppose the EU from a completely different standpoint to that of Ukip and the Tory outers.”

Any other MPs elected in 1983 on an anti-EEC platform?

Quote of the Day

Paul Dacre on the Daily Mail’s future support for Brexit…

“…what moves me most are the countless messages from readers worried about whether the Mail will continue its support for EU withdrawal. My answer to them — and others — is unequivocal. Support for Brexit is in the DNA of both the Daily Mail and, more pertinently, its readers. Any move to reverse this would be editorial and commercial suicide.”
