THREAD: In 2016 Labour were a 'Remain & reform' party
In 2020, if there's a PV, they're likely to be officially neutral

That's huge. That's a win for Lexiteers. NO major parties campaigned for Leave. If Lab are 'neutral' in PV, that's closer to pro-leave than anyone in 2016. 1/
In the referendum, the Tories campaigned for remain, yet were the ones offering an option to leave & were the ones tasked with curating a deal. So how come now Labour are getting stick for the awkwardness of striking a deal, then some MPs choosing to back remain? 2/
It's obviously not ideal for Lexiteers like myself, I'd prefer Labour to campaign solely for their deal. I'd also like a million quid & all my hair back but such is life. If Lab ends up abandoning a remain & reform position to be neutral, how is that not a win for Lexiteers? 3/
Corbyn is Frodo in Mordor. We've known it from the start, his was the impossible task of making a palatable brexit happen, as LOTO, whilst fending off knives aimed squarely at his spine. That he's still leader is amazing, that he's kept Labour on course for leave is masterful 4/
If Labour are neutral, w/ MPs campaigning to their own preference, then JC himself could actually be on the leave side. It would be his deal on the ballot so that would make sense anyway & he'd finally get to promote leavin the EU that he's campaigned against his whole career. 5/
