To #Labour voters who back a #PeoplesVote and are campaigning to #Remain in the EU, please ignore this angry article. It does not speak for the majority.
The worst thing Labour supporters like Owen can do at the #EUElections2019 is lecture and patronise Remain voters.
Instead, let's be honest about the progress made in moving #Labour policy on #Brexit forward, while recognising we are not where we need to be.
The good news:
-203 Labour MPs voted for a #PeoplesVote in parliament
-34 Labour candidates have signed the @Remain_Labour pledge.
Less good news:
- The NEC decision confirms that backing a #PeoplesVote is an 'option', but did not commit to it unambiguously.

#Remain campaigners have every reason to be frustrated. But instead of attacking them (as Owen does), we need to convince them to stick with Labour
There are lots of good reasons to back #Labour candidates in the #EUElections2019.
One is the likelihood of Farage topping the poll if #Remain voters leave #Labour and the vote fractures in multiple directions. But that cannot be our sole argument.
Just as importantly...
#Labour candidates for the #EUElections2019 are overwhelmingly Pro-EU.

34 have already signed the @Remain_Labour Pledge, which commits to campaigning for a #FinalSay and voting #Remain.
Every Labour MEP will join the European Socialists & Democrats group in Brussels.
Yes, the NEC decision has made it harder for #Remain voters to back #Labour in the #EUElections2019, not easier.
The way to win them back in the next 3 weeks is not to attack them (like Owen) but to show that Labour is still a Pro-EU party and the one that can beat Farage.
