Will Corbyn be next for a knifing?

Jeremy Corbyn has led the Labour party to defeat in the EU referendum. He and Labour were staunch supporters of Remain and they got slaughtered.

The statistics show just how out of touch Labour are with the electorate.

2016 EU Referendum results: Leave 52% / Remain 48%

YouGov polled between 17-19 June and was one of the few polls in the lead-up to the referendum to show Leave ahead of Remain.

Remain Leave Don’t Know
Lab voters 64% 26% 9%
Lib-Dem voters 59% 32% 9%
Tory voters 35% 55% 9%
Ukip voters 2% 95%  3%

As you can see, the Tories’ result was very much like the final result in the EU referendum. David Cameron is on the wrong side of that and he has resigned. Labour voters are completely out of touch with the rest of the electorate. Their leader is one of those out of touch. He must likewise go if Labour are to try to right the listing ship before it turns turtle.

Moves are now afoot with signatures being mustered calling for him to go.

Jeremy Corbyn has provoked a furious backlash from Labour MPs after calling on the Government to immediately start the process of withdrawing from the European Union. 

The Labour leader said that Article 50 needs to be “invoked now” in response to the EU referendum result because “many communities are fed up with cuts and economic dislocation.

Labour MPs, who repeatedly warned that Mr Corbyn was failing to do enough during the referendum campaign, said he was “absolutely crazy”.

It comes after a leaked Labour script claimed that Jeremy Corbyn is “uniquely placed as a critical Remainer” to help unify Britain in the wake of the referendum.

This morning he rejected reports that MPs are blaming him for the defeat, claiming: “I can’t believe there’s any attacks on me personally on a day like this”

His comments led to accusations that he is “delusional” and led to open calls for him to quit.

Mr Corbyn said: “Article 50 needs to be invoked now. Many communities are fed up with cuts and very angry. The message is that many communities are fed up with cuts and economic dislocation.

“Clearly there are very difficult days ahead. There will be job consequences.”

One Labour MP told the Telegraph: “Corbyn has to go. The referendum proved he is worse than even his worse critics said he would be.

“Even people who supported him have seen he is not up to it. He can’t motivate Labour voters, let alone persuade anyone else.

“He can’t handle a campaign or even manage to get a message across in an interview. But it is not just that he is incompetent and not up to the job: he has no ideas beyond the vacuous slogans he repeats.

“He hasn’t set out a single serious policy since he became leader and the views he does have – like on immigration and free movement – are diametrically opposed to the public’s.”

MPs reacted furiously after receiving  a 6am briefing from the Leader’s Office which instructed them to tell the media that Mr Corbyn had showed he is “far closer to the centre of gravity of the British public” than other politicians.

The briefing read: “He is now the only politician who can unite a divided country, as he can speak to both sides.”

Mr Corbyn has repeatedly been accused of failing to galvanize support among the Labour Party’s core voters and to convert them into Remainers.

Corbyn is a political retard and it is clear that neither he nor his party, in any way, have a connection with real voters.

Until Labour realise that they have lost touch with voters, and recognise it is they who are lost and not the voters, they will remain in opposition and sink into political oblivion.
