…a transitional period under Labour will be as short as possible, but as long as is necessary. It cannot become a kind of never-ending purgatory. That would simply create its own uncertainty and ambiguity.’
So Mr Starmer QC how long is a piece of string. Its a meaningless phrase from the party of meaningless phrases
Labour are trying to repeat their success they had at the last General Election conning people by getting the gullible students to believe they are going to cancel their debts, abolish tuition and maintenance fees remove the benefits for those in receipt of same and all paid for by Jezza,s magic money tree that he grows in his allotment..
Labour want power and if that requires welching on the 2015 Referendum result they will do it. If it requires blatant they will do that.
From today's Independent, "They, the Daily Mail etc, will equate this potentially indefinite transitional deal with barely leaving the EU. They will foresee it as a stepping stone towards Labour demanding a second referendum. And they might very well be right."
further from the same source,
"Starmer is offering a refined version of the constructive ambiguity he claims to be jettisoning. On the surface, he is sticking to the commitment to recognise the democratic will. A few millimetres beneath it, he is doggy-paddling towards reversing it.
