Having ignored Jeremy Corbyn and Labour’s referendum campaign to concentrate on splits in the Conservative Party, it seems the mainstream media are actually preparing to blame him if the UK votes ‘Leave’ on June 23.
What a gang of raving hypocrites they are.
When Jeremy Corbyn and the rest of the Parliamentary Labour Party were travelling the length and breadth of the UK, talking to people “from Land’s End to John O’Groats”, as a party spokesperson put it today, the right-wing press didn’t want to know.
The only reason any of these hacks are taking any interest now is because David Cameron has slithered away in disgrace, having succeeded in putting voters off ‘Remain’, rather than turning them on to it.
If ‘Remain’ continues to be seen as a Cameron campaign – something these same right-wing hacks have been pushing for the past four months – then his career is doomed. It’s probably doomed anyway, but the Tories don’t have anybody to replace him, after Boris Johnson’s performance in the same referendum campaign.
So they’ve come up with this wheeze: Let Cameron step back, give Corbyn nine days in the spotlight and then be prepared to say a ‘Leave’ vote was all the Labour leader’s fault.
The Labour Blairites will love it, and are stupid enough that they’ll use it to rip their own party to pieces, leaving the Tories free and clear to do whatever they like for the next four years.
This has Rupert Murdoch’s greasy fingerprints all over it…
The best way to kill this skulduggery stone dead is to vote ‘Remain’, of course.
Not because it will stymie the slimeballs, though.
Vote ‘Remain’ because you believe it is the best choice.
