There is no left-wing justification for Brexit. This is a project about neoliberal deregulation. It is Thatcherism on steroids.

My full #MeaningfulVote speech to the Commons here: facebook.com/DavidLammyTott…
This country’s greatest moments came when we showed courage, not when we appeased.

Friends and colleagues tell me to appease Brexit voters. I say we must not patronise them with cowardice. Let’s tell them the truth. "You were sold a lie." #MeaningfulVote #BrexitVote
This is the fundamental dishonesty at the heart of the Brexit debate. Most MPs now recognise it in private, but do not say it in public:

Brexit is a con. A trick. A swindle. A fraud.

A deception that will hurt most those people it promised to help.
Brexit will not free us from the injustices of global capitalism, but make us subordinate to Trump’s US.

If we remain, we can reform the EU. We can recharge the economy, re-fuel the NHS, build the houses we need.

We can restore hope to the UK after years of hurt.
