Labour has revised its policy on Brexit and – true to form – the UK’s right-wing media have got it wrong.

They’re saying Jeremy Corbyn’s party now supports remaining in the EU, and that isn’t right at all.

Labour will only support Brexit if it protects the economy, jobs, and UK citizens’ living standards – and will only campaign to remain in the EU if the Conservatives try to leave the bloc without those protections.

This is clearly the most sensible response to the 2016 referendum by any UK political party.

The Conservatives want Brexit on their terms – terms which would harm citizens’ human rights, working rights, environmental protections and more. If they don’t get their own way, they want to throw all their toys out of the pram and have a “no deal” Brexit.

The Brexit Party want a “no deal” Brexit under any circumstances – that would run down industry, open up the NHS and other public services to yet more privatisation, and shred environmental protections, rights at work and consumer standards.

The Liberal Democrats want to ignore the result of the referendum and force remaining in the EU on the UK’s population without giving anybody a say.

Labour wants a people’s vote (referendum) on whatever is proposed: A Tory deal, no deal or remaining. If the deal does not protect UK citizens and the economy, Labour will campaign for people to support remaining.

So Labour supports the best result for the people of the UK. No other party can say that.

Now: There is a by-election in Brecon and Radnorshire, where Brexit is certain to be one of the main issues.

Wouldn’t it be great if the people here were allowed to make up their own minds on the different parties’ policies, without the media trying to influence them?

The BBC was trying to do it on Politics Live today (June 9). I was tweeting in response to the nonsense, as you can see:

They didn’t get it right.

Well? How about it?
