We have been saying for a while now that there is much to laugh at within the Labour Party, whether it is their leader’s insistence that they ‘won’ the election or their ‘free everything for everyone’ manifesto.
The latest episode of ‘Let’s All Laugh At Labour’ came last night on BBC’s Question Time programme when everyone pretty much cracked up at Labour’s approach to Brexit.
The Labour MP Stella Creasy insisted that there is a debate going on inside the party about Brexit, and everything pretty much went downhill from there.
Bear in mind that this statement came just hours after a mere FORTY-NINE Labour MPs defied party orders to abstain on a vote about an amendment regarding keeping the UK in the Single Market after Brexit.
Debate? Or Punch and Judy show?
Vote Leave maestro Liam Fox said: “The British people made very clear in the referendum and in the general election – incidentally the Labour Party manifesto said we will leave the single market, the Conservative party said we will leave the single market, and 82 per cent of people voted for one of those parties.
“I would say to those who are intent on thwarting what the British public voted for in the referendum: we voted to have control of our laws, control of our borders and control of our money.
“That means not being under the influence of the European Court of Justice, not having complete free movement as we have in the single market.
“You know, what don’t you understand about democratic referendum or binary? Because that is what we voted for.”
According to The Express: Ms Creasy snapped back at the Conservative politician arguing that was not Labour’s policy before she was berated by the BBC audience.
She replied: “That’s not actually true about the Labour Party manifesto, but also we just had a general election, your Government asked for a thumping mandate for that approach, for that hard Brexit come what may, that isolationist approach and the public said no.
“That public said that is not what they want.”
Host David Dimbleby stepped in questioning why Mr Corbyn sacked ministers for voting for the single market.
Ms Creasy added: “That absolutely is right, I’m not going to pretend that’s not a debate going on in the Labour movement.”
The word ‘debate’ pretty much put the audience into hysterics.
To be honest, we’re still laughing now …
