How shadow chancellor morphed from shady Trot to business's BFF

    Has anyone forgotten how the UK actually voted in the Referendum. It was 52% in favour of OUT and 48% in favour of STAY. It's not the Conservatives that favoured OUT or that Labour favoured STAY. In reality, the labour heartlands in the north of the UK voted overwhelmingly OUT and the Labour leadership had sold these people down the river as they would the rest of us once in power. As for the Tories, they are in a perennial struggle as to what they really want - there are hard Brexiters and hard Remainers and neither would give an inch. As the government of the day, the Tories have no choice but to abide by the will of the people and that is to negotiate an OUT deal. We may disagree with the result and plenty out there seek to overturn the democratic process but had it been the other way then I wonder what kind of response we would be getting now.

    Funny that all the demonstrations and anti voices seemed to only come from corporates, elites, "well educated", city dwellers, and well heeled individuals but I fear they have totally forgotten the "silent majority" who may well spring a surprise or two when the time is ripe for them to rise up.

    Career politicians, such as jezza, and his cronies never have anything but their own agenda, they will have thought they would not get the opportunity to gain the power to spread their seeds of dissent, anti-democracy, and underlying communist ideals, they don't have the country's interests at heart...thanks to the wonderful world of criminal hacking, giving a whole new meaning to vote rigging, and exploiting the anger, and rebellion of youth willing to cross lines which undermine democracy..they gain ground..
