Corbyn is right: Tory tribalism will be no protection against a bad Brexit

When life imitates satire: This mock “Brexit 50p” is now eerily indicative of the way Parliament has behaved over Brexit.

Conservatives cheered when MPs heard Labour’s bid to control whether the UK leaves the European Union with no deal had failed. Big mistake.

Jeremy Corbyn was absolutely right to say, “You won’t be cheering in September.”

A no-deal Brexit would be hugely disruptive to the UK – its systems, its services, its supplies, and its relationships with other nations and international organisations.

But never mind that; the Tories wanted to give their leadership candidates leeway, on the international stage, to make even worse fools of us than Theresa May already has.

All the talk that a no-deal Brexit won’t hurt us is just that – talk. Jingoism for the benefit of the tribe. “Everything will be fine because we’re British!”

It won’t.

But by the time we have proof of that, it will be too late to make a difference.

That’s the reason Mr Corbyn said what he did.

So you have to ask yourself: Who benefits from a no-deal Brexit? When you know that, you’ll know why we’re being herded towards it.

    I can see why people are trying to stop no deal but what we need is for people to get their heads together and make a deal. All that I see from Parliament and have done, for I don’t know how long, is Parliament saying want it doesn’t want; this will get us nowhere. I hate to channel Theresa May but she was right when she said that the best way to avoid no deal is to have a deal.

    This is just shadowy ERG manipulation at work.

    Boris bribing all MPs with a pay rise (raising the higher tax band) and dangling a carrot in the form of a position in his cabinet to manipulate the No Deal vote.

    Reece Mogg in the background telling them “Stick with us and we’ll all be rich !” like Mr Burns from the Simpsons.
