Quick thread about the local elections, @UKLabour, #Brexit and that awful letter signed by my Labour MP and 24 others. To cut a long story short, the Labour canvassers are so furious at @MikeKaneMP that one of them did this: ripped his picture off the calling card.
Apparently these poor activists have had enormous difficulty on the doorstep because of the parliamentary party's support for #ToryBrexit and @MikeKaneMP's betrayal of Labour ideals by signing this letter. 2/n
These two local @UKLabour activists were just as furious as me about Labour's outrageous position of attempting to push through the right-wing coup that is #Brexit, despite Labour's previous promises to protect jobs and prosperity (remember the 6 tests?)
As a result, myself and many others in @MikeKaneMP's constituency and beyond cannot bring themselves to vote for the Labour candidate, as it sends a signal of support to a @UKLabour party that is betraying its voters and an MP that is appeasing fascists.
And Freedom of Movement speaks to the very core of @UKLabour values. It is a great leveller of opportunity without which working, studying and retiring abroad becomes a privilege, not a right. Many former @UKLabour voters are aghast thtat Labour will not protect it.
And we are all horrified that @UKLabour manifesto and conference pledges including the #sixtests, @jeremycorbyn's "Not a Single Job Lost", and the promise to put a deal to the #PeoplesVote have all been abandoned in this disgusting push to get #ToryBrexit over the line.
So yes, @MikeKaneMP, you are betraying the voters, many of whom work in the supply chains of the motor and aircraft industries which will be hard hit by #Brexit, and don't want to lose our hard won EU rights and freedoms.
Dear @MikeKaneMP. #Manchester voted Remain, but even Leave voters won't forgive you if you harm local industry & strip us of our EU rights, to appease the Tories. Back a #PeoplesVote with an option to #Remain. If your own activists are doing this: maybe you're on the wrong side./
PS... @MikeKaneMP and @UKLabour, for getting into bed with the Tories on #Brexit... this is you...
Finally finally, I forgot to even mention the illegality of the referendum and the blatant lies told by the Leave campaign that Labour should have been calling out since the beginning. No need to "respect" the result because it's not the clear #willofthepeople anyway
Finally for real, if you're here you should sign the petition
petition.parliament.uk/petitions/2415…
and join your local pro-EU group e.g. manchesterforeurope.org
Thanks!
