Jeremy Corbyn is a lifelong brexist he has voted with the tory Europhobe right more times than any other Labour MP #Brexit might be said to be his most consistent belief
Corbyn's own brother said he would have campaigned to leave if he wasn't labour leader #brexit
Old friends and political allies are all of the same opinion Jeremy corbyn would have campaigned for #Brexit had he not been Labour leader
It is true he officially backed remain but did so with all the passion of a communist party functionary uttering orthodoxy he didn't believe the contrast with the passion he campaigned for nearly everything else is undeniable
Corbyn made sure he was out of the country for the #PeoplesVote march yet made a passionate speech against Donald trump. There is coincidentally a conference on defeating the far right on same day as #PeoplesVote March clearly intended to clash
Jeremy Corbyn demanded the immediate triggering of article 50 immediately after #Brexit before even the hardest tory brexiteer
In response to business fears @jeremycorbyn has consistently insisted on the same hard #Brexit as the tory ERG despite knowing that this will devastate the economy and reduce 100000s of currently prosperous people to penury
@jeremycorbyn leads a party overwhelmingly sympathetic to the EU most labour MPs the trade unions most members all want a second ref but corbyn has loyally stood by Jacob Rees-Mogg Steve Baker and his longterm compadres in the tory right #Brexit
. @jeremycorbyn is refusing to countenance a #PeoplesVote despite growing evidence that it would not harm and could help reelection
Jeremy Corbyn is well aware of the damage #Brexit will do the poorest people in society but considers this collateral damage
The NHS will be damaged by #Brexit and corbyn knows this however he is prepared to sacrifice what he allegedly holds dear for what is most important to him
Corbyn despite a lifelong commitment to anti racism corbyn has been prepared to blame immigration for lower wages and worse conditions so is prepared to harness racism in support of the #Brexit he believes and treasures most
Corbyn is prepared to see the economy devastated the NHS damaged the poorest suffer for #Brexit even if opposing #Brexit was a vote winner so if belief is judged by what you are prepared to sacrifice #Brexit is the belief @jeremycorbyn holds highest of all
Jeremy Corbyns most dedicated supporters have made excuse after excuse after excuse for following essentially the same policy as the tory right
Some will claim corbyn is respecting the will of the people with #Brexit but this is a man who has never been afraid to espouse unpopular causes however out of sync with popular opinion
Some of @jeremycorbyn devoted supporters will claim there will be unrest and the rise of the far right despite knowing that appeasement of such people never works and #brexpeasement will work no better
Some claim that because most labour constituencies voted leave it it would be political suicide yet opinion is changing and pissing off the 70 % of labour voters who voted remain who increasingly want a second ref is safe apparently
Then there is the famous long game a demonstration of masterly non opposition where @jeremycorbyn he is allegedly picking the moment to strike the optimal time however never comes and never will
My own favourite excuse is that if corbyn opposed brexit he would be crucified by the tory press something the man himself has never given a damn about
And before you nistas say blame the tories and make excuse after excuse for his non opposition corbyn knows he can have his program of social reform or #Brexit he can't have both he is choosing #Brexit
