it’s no coincidence that the same centrist/right-wing politicians criticising jeremy corbyn for visiting children in a palestinian refugee camp are also the people who voted to invade iraq and bomb syria, whilst helping to push through the austerity that led to brexit in the first place.

voting the tories out and ending austerity should be the priority. focusing on a second referendum that does not have enough electoral support is only going to ensure the tories remain in power indefinitely and make a no-deal brexit more likely. which perhaps is exactly what neoliberal centrists and right-wingers would prefer, since undermining any future leftist labour government has remained their priority from the moment jeremy corbyn was democratically elected leader twice by the party membership.

for them, the tories continued austerity will never affect their lives but a leftist labour government would mean they could no longer ride the neoliberal gravy train.

“People have been charmed and manipulated in a
concerted effort to undermine Labour by trying to take the youth support
away from Corbyn.

The main people funding them hate the idea of an anti-austerity,
pro-peacebuilding democratic socialist government more than they hate
Tory Brexit because the former will see a great many gravy trains hit
the buffers.

They know full well that a “People’s Vote” at this stage would achieve
nothing except to drive a wedge in the opposition & make Labour
unelectable. They know full well if Labour came out full-on for Remain
the Tories would reap all the Leave constituencies and stay in power.

The only way we can stop hard Brexit is by getting the Tories out of government and implementing Labour’s manifesto promises.

Tories do what they do. Even the most “centrist” of Tories will take
May’s Hard Brexit over the risk of not being in government any more. Many centrist Labour
MPs will take May’s Hard Brexit over a Corbyn government.”
