1) Labour Leadership is lying - part 2

A few days ago I put together this thread on how in my opinion, of the 4 major players involved in #Brexit the Labour leadership were the most dishonest & evasive by some margin

Already, its time for an update

2) Today, Tory Fibs, a leading Labour commentator put out a summary of the Labour Brexit position. Other than a Veto on EU trade deals & no controls on state aid it reflects the position put forward by all Labour spokespeople

See the highlighted phrase
3) the last people to talk about Single Market "access" were Johnson, Gove & the Vote Leave campaign. It was used to lie to people, to pretend that we could get the same benefits inside as well as outside the EU

Here's what the IFS said 3 years ago about "access"
4) it's the same lie, because "skills based immigration" is the same as "points based immigration" which is the same as "End Free Movement", with the added twist that a socialist government would value foreigners only as economic units not individuals
5) so here's the kicker, you can call it politics or strategy or "not splitting the vote"
But the fact is Labour are currently spreading a message very close to and just as dishonest as Vote Leave

The front bench are lying, just as Vote Leave are lying
6) saying you can have a close relationship with the SM, or access to the FM, or exact same benefits as the SM without Free Movement is the exact same lie.

Saying you can get a bespoke deal "because of attitude" in a rule of law based system is as big a lie as any of Johnson's
7) this new kind of politics, honest &, straightforward, is the biggest lie of all. The front bench sends out spokespeople day after day, who's only defence might be they are too foolish to realise they are misleading the public
8) Labour supporters will have to come to terms with this, the Leadership is the new Vote Leave, and Vote Leave got us in this mess.

You cannot build a socialist utopia if the foundations are rotten. You can't expect anything clean to rise out of Corbyism if it begins with lies
9) but in the end its not even a matter of debate. The hard leave brexiters are headbangers but at least they have a core idea, Corbyn's leadership have nothing, just techniques on deceit from the Vote Leave playbook
