Two days ago The Yardley Gob officially confirmed her candidacy to become the next leader of the Labour party. Breitbart published this a few hours ago. An extract:
“If it’s safer, more economically viable, to be in the EU, I will fight for that, regardless of how difficult that argument is to make”, Phillips insisted.
“As somebody who has a Leave seat but campaigned for Remain, I thought it was the best thing for the people. I am not going just to just change my mind on that,” she vowed.
The MP’s comments were ridiculed by Rupert Lowe, a Brexit Party MEP, who wrote on Twitter that her Remainer stance would further alienate working-class voters.
“If the next Labour leader goes into any election backing ‘rejoin’ then they have learnt absolutely nothing. They just sacrificed their working-class support and look where it got them”, Lowe wrote.
“Let’s hope they’re stupid enough to go for it!”
Let’s hope The Yardley Gob becomes the next party leader. If she does, Labour will be out of power for at least a decade.
