Brexit BETRAYAL: Farage RIDICULES ‘champagne socialist’ Labour Party for Brexit ‘sell-out’
The Labour Party have whipped MPs to betray the 2017 Labour Party manifesto, which stated the party would have ended the freedom of movement with Brexit. Speaking on his LBC show, Mr Farage ridiculed the decision and said: “I’m getting a reaction from LBC listeners on Facebook. Theresa says she used to be Labour and will never vote again. James says ‘all my family aren’t voting Labour’. Mark says ‘Labour are sell-outs’. Pete says ‘Labour, never again’.
Their voters will feel about this complete and utter sell-out and let down of their own voters
“I’ll bet you the Islington, middle-upper class, champagne socialist Labour Party have no idea how millions of their voters will feel about this complete and utter sell-out and let down of their own voters.”
MPs will vote today on their preferred Brexit options for a future relationship with the EU after Brexit in a series of indicative votes.
One of the motions regarding a Common Market 2.0 was tabled by Nick Boles, Tory MP for Grantham and Stamford, and subsequently backed by the Labour Party.
The motion calls for an enhanced Norway-style deal which would include membership of the EU’s single market as well as a customs arrangement with the EU.
A similar proposal was already put forward last week by the same MP, and was supported by 189 MPs, while 283 voted against it.
The Labour manifesto reads: “Freedom of movement will end when we leave the European Union. Britain’s immigration system will change.”
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has also urged SNP MP to back a motion tabled by the SNP’s Joanna Cherry.
The proposal says if Britain has not ratified an exit deal within 48 hours of the day it is due to leave the EU, currently set at April 12, the Government should seek a further extension to the Article 50 negotiating period.
If a Brexit delay can’t be agreed by the day before exit day, Downing Street should seek Parliament’s approval for leaving the EU without a deal.
If the House once again rejects the no deal scenario, the Government should then revoke Article 50 to cancel Brexit.
The third options, known as Motion C, would grant the British Government a mandate to negotiate with the European Union the creation of a new customs union to maintain trade relations without major disruption after Brexit.
The option was put forward by Conservative MP Ken Clarke.
Lastly, Commons Speaker John Bercow also selected a proposal for a confirmatory public vote on the final deal passed by Parliament which was put forward by Labour’s Peter Kyle and Phil Wilson.
