1) The crux of why Labour is hamstrung on #Brexit
It *is* an outrage that May is saying "take my deal or take chaos", it's blackmail

But the only alternatives are a #PeoplesVote or #RevokeA50

If Labour won't call for either they are just shouting ineffectively into the wind
2) Gardiner can say on #politicslive "this is unacceptable, we must be given a meaningful vote"

But when asked for Labour's alternative he talks about a new equal partner CU which is illegal under EU law, and so the highly justifiable attack on May splutters to a halt
3) the fact is, when Corbyn attacks May's ridiculous deal, she can respond with "well, where's your alternative?"

When May says "it's my deal or no deal" Labour can bluster but offer no credible 3rd option

So Labour cannot effectively oppose, at all
4) the only route that Labour can take to oppose is some kind of Remain. As long as they refuse to they are just taking up space & having no substantial effect on the debate at this crucial time
Time's up
PS) as poster below pointed out, Len McCluskey now joining @AngelaRayner and other front benchers in shouting down a #peoplesvote

Many Labour members thought this was party policy

No confidence motion. No PV

Labour absent from meaningful #Brexit debate
