1) @EmilyThornberry talking tosh on #dailypolitics re #Brexit
"We've been consistent"
"We've moved the Tory party to our position"
2) Labour haven't been consistent on #Brexit nor have they moved the Tories
*Both* parties had the same hard line position 6 months ago
3) as shown here, John McDonnell *specifically* intervened right after the GE to keep hard #brexit alive

4) Both Labour & Tories have played & are playing the same game, pushing to leave EU, prioritising an anti immigrant position over economy
5) and *both* Labour & Tories have been dragged to a more reasonable position by simple realities re #Brexit
6) the reality of #Brexit being this: the party that delivers the hard #brexit previously offered by both would be destroyed by its impacts
7) for all the "new kind of Politics" bullshit we've heard from Labour they've been deeply cynical, let Tories be destroyed by hard #brexit
8) the same hard #brexit they supported.
But now that it looks like Tories may collapse, Labour do not want to be left with delivering it
9) it's welcome that Labour are softening on #Brexit, but for Thornberry to say they've been consistent is laughable
