ASK THE AUDIENCE
Britain is on the brink of a constitutional crisis, and it is going to get considerably worse if the fate of the UK is put into the hands of the totally incompetent, lying cheating. blustering Boris Johnson. If he takes the helm we are heading straight into a cliff.
There has to be a General Election. The Brexit deal as devised by Theresa May should be set out in a simplified bullet point format, so the public can see what the House of Commons are voting for or rejecting. It is about time the public knew exactly what is on the table. I would suggest Jeremy gets his pal, filmmaker Ken Loach, to make a public information film, yes, of the old fashioned variety, setting out exactly what a 'deal' with Europe looks like, what a 'no deal' looks like and how Labour would handle it.
Right now, everyone is arguing about principles, not facts. Theresa May kept us in the dark as to what Brexit will actually mean, how each of us will be affected. Vital medication for example? Are people hoarding? Should they be hoarding? I want someone to explain it all to me 'like I'm a 4 year old', and I'm guessing, I am far from the only one.
The problem with the Referendum lay in the fact that the public were woefully uninformed as to what leaving the European Union would actually mean. They were guided by Boris Johnson's false claim that the UK would save £350m per week and Farage's fake posters of hoards of immigrants heading for the UK
This time around there is no excuse for the public not to be fully informed. Theresa May lost every time because she went with her own judgement rather than the wishes of the majority. And we the public do not know what deals she made, because there must be hundreds, if not thousands, of individual ones. On Human Rights for example, will the UK continue to uphold the principles of the European Court? Are the tory echelons dusting off their horsewhips?
It takes a talented expert to explain a complex subject in simplified terms and the Labour Party has such experts and such talent. To win a snap election, all they have to do is set out the facts for the public to decide.
