What’s happening in Italy is an appalling subversion of democracy by credit rating agencies and the EU. If the EU wants to survive it will need flexibility to a changing political context. Trying to preserve the status quo through undemocratic means will only fuel euroscepticism
Incredible how the #FBPE crowd choose to wilfully ignore this stuff, while parading around with their EU flag berets on. The EU isn’t some cuddly institution, it has deep flaws that are playing out in front of our eyes. The refusal to address them is why Brexit is still popular
I voted remain in spite of the sheer ineptitude of Stronger In: a fan club encouraging us to thank the EU for apparently saving us from destruction. Instead of learning the lessons of failure or winning people over, they’re now stamping their feet claiming Corbyn can stop Brexit
If the unholy alliance between Progress and the AWL - an organisation Progress once branded “Trots” - actually wanted to stop Brexit they’d direct their message at the public. The obsessive focus on the Labour leadership makes me think they just see Brexit as a useful wedge issue
For all their bashing of Corbyn supporters, #FBPE-ers are the real cult. So emotionally attached to a series of technocratic institutional arrangements that they’ll happily ignore its very visible drawbacks..... truly bizarre
