Labour and Tory “rebels” have settled into a comfy pattern: if Labour votes against gov’t, rebels behave. When they vote against gov’t, Labour is told to abstain. So, all can claim in the future “I tried to stop hard #Brexit” without actually doing it. No principles and no spine.
And so, on we sleepwalk to a no-deal disaster, dictated by the disaster capitalists on the hard right, who stand to make a killing, because nobody had the guts to take the political risk of voting with the their conscience and explaining to their constituents why they did it.
Effectively both major parties have resigned to the disaster that is coming and are simply jostling to position themselves so that they can bear none of the political responsibility for it. Because, ultimately, MPs are nowhere near the precipice, like migrants or the poorest.
How utterly demoralising.
