Truss begone. Tories begone. Brexit begone.
Most of the country never wanted you.
Only 37 per cent of the electorate gave their positive support for Brexit in the referendum. That’s hardly a majority.
Many people directly affected by the outcome of the referendum were denied a vote. That’s hardly democracy.
Let me repeat for the avoidance of doubt: most of the British public did NOT support Brexit. They never did. They still don’t.
That, however, is contrary to what BBC Radio 4 presenter Amol Rajan, told The Guardian columnist, Polly Toynbee, and ex-editor of The Telegraph, Max Hastings, on the programme this morning.
Mr Rajan said that the majority of the British public voted for Brexit.
The Tories foisted Brexit on Britain when most in the country never voted for it, and it’s only brought severe harm and zero benefits.
Now Truss is going, we need more than just another general election. We need a new vote on Brexit, and a shake-up of British politics.
It’s Labour’s chance not just to win by a landslide because the Conservatives are catastrophically incompetent.
It’s Labour’s chance to win and change course, by making Britain a fairer, more equitable country, and mending our broken relationship with the rest of our continent.
