1) @EmilyThornberry said in an interview "I'm surprised the country isn't 70% for Remain"
We would be, if the Government, ERG & Labour Leadership hadn't colluded in the lie that #Brexit could happen largely without cost…
2) If you are going to consistently lie alongside others saying "My version of #Brexit will protect jobs & the economy" then why be surprised if people believe you and don't turn against it?
Did @EmilyThornberry expect people to ignore both the Tories and Labour to see the truth?
3) #Brexit represents the greatest failure of leadership in the @UKLabour movement in living memory
Having accused the old era of "triangulation" the leadership have fretted over Northern seats & colluded in the Brexit lie rather than serving their voters
4) this comment from Thornberry captures it well - having spent 2 years saying "#Brexit would be absolutely fine if Labour were in charge" she's now expressing surprise that some parts of the public believed her

There was *no* Leadership voice telling the truth on Brexit
5) Imagine were we would be now if Labour had simply been saying for 2 years
"We respect the referendum but let's be in no doubt, we might do a better job of damage limitation but no #Brexit will ever leave us better off, they are all degrees of making us poorer"
6) More to the point - imagine where @UKlabour would be now if Corbyn had had the wit & courage to say 2 years ago "we respect the referendum *but* we will not trigger Article 50 & the 2 year clock until we are satisfied the government has a plan, as promised by Vote Leave"
7) Labour will now come late to the the last possible moment they will campaign for a #PeoplesVote, a fight they made harder because they prioritised Corbyn's prejudice and Party interest over the country right up to the wire

Shameful, just shameful
