1) So what is the Labour #Brexit GE platform?

As far as we can make out we'd be voting for more negotiations (which the EU will not agree to) to get a better deal (which likely doesn't exist)

The entire Labour platform is based on promising a Brexit they cannot deliver
2) "Vote Labour even though our #Brexit platform depends on 27 other governments all doing what they've all said they absolutely won't do"

That's not a manifesto, it's just wishful thinking
3) but even if Labour's GE promises on Brexit were real, why should any Remainer support a GE?

The Tories have led Brexit but at least they are starting to say it may not happen. Corbyn's leadership team won't even consider the idea that Brexit could be stopped
4) Corbyn & the Labour leadership team are explicitly offering only #Brexit if they win a GE. And the chances are it will be May's Brexit anyway, or something close to it, because Corbyn also wants to end FoM

They offer nothing to Remainers, as a matter of policy
5) What's bizarre is, Labour are not even attempting to seek a fresh mandate to oppose #Brexit. The pro Brexit platform Corbyn put forward in his speech wasn't decided in conference. It doesn't reflect what the members or Labour voters want, a #PeoplesVote.
6) Corbyn has basically said "me & my inner circle have decided Labour is now top to bottom pro Brexit.We're not interested in what the members think or even in asking the voters.
Instead we take our mandate from a tiny majority won 3 years ago by a deeply flawed Leave campaign"
7) 3 years ago the Ref campaign was between a dull Remain camp & a Leave campaign making sweeping promises it couldn't keep

Corbyn wants Labour to take on the role of Vote Leave in a GE
8) But Labour leadership offers nothing to Remainers & only false promises to Leavers. Supporting a GE makes no sense at the moment for anyone
