Owen Smith: It Would Be “Tempting” to Block Brexit

Labour leadership contender Owen Smith says it would be “tempting” not to trigger Article 50 and thereby block Brexit. Smith also wants a second EU referendum. This rhetoric might appeal to Europhile members of the PLP but it is completely at odds with Labour members and voters. In Labour seats across the north up to 70% voted to Leave. A new ComRes poll shows voters oppose a second referendum by 57% to 29%. Surely Labour MPs know Smith’s approach would be suicide…

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
