Keir Starmer has announced that under a Labour government, the UK would continue to abide by the EU’s free movement rules, accept the jurisdiction of the European court of justice on trade and economic issues, and pay into the EU budget, under the pretense of lessening the shock of leaving to the UK economy. That’s the UK economy that would be destroyed by McDonut anyway if Labour ever got into power.
Labour will also leave open the option of the UK remaining a member of the customs union and single market for good, beyond the end of any transitional period.
In other words we pretend to leave but actually nothing changes and we don’t actually leave at all.
Is treason too strong a word to use for this?
I don’t think so…
