The Remain Brexit stance of Labour cost the party valuable seats in the north and west Midlands. Even though Mr Bradshaw did say the chance of a return to the EU is possible, in addition, he blamed the 2016 referendum and election defeat on Jeremy Corbyn.
On Thursday, Shadow Cabinet of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Emily Thornberry gave the leader “0 out of 10” for his performance during the election.
“You just need to take note of the current facts in British politics. “What else can I do?”
In the lead up to the election Labour and Mr Corbyn himself were criticised for their uncertain stance on Brexit. Indeed, its Brexit policy was just established by the party following the party conference in Brighton.
Talking to Sky News, she said:”Losing an election is probably the most crucial thing by which you’d measure a party leader, and obviously we dropped very, very poorly (due their rejection of the referendum out come in 2016)
Despite the united kingdom now looking set to leave the EU trade bloc later this month, Labour MP Ben Bradshaw told German Press TagesSpiegel, publication,
“Everything is possible.“And in politics you should never say ‘never’ anyway.“Unfortunately, re-entry into the EU is not an issue in the short term.“You just have to take note of the current facts in British politics.“But once the difficult decisions that Brexit brings are on the agenda, the debate will change.“That could eventually lead to full membership again.”
After Boris Johnson’s overwhelming election victory in December, the Prime Minister has been given a controlling majority to push on with his Brexit deal. The Labour party endured its worst electoral defeat since 1935, forcing his intention to resign from the party this year to be announced by Jeremy Corbyn.
“And on this basis, I would give him that nought from 10. Seats like Bolsover, Workington and Dudley North – all of which voted to leave in the 2016 referendum lost trust with Labour, bringing down the red wall and switched to the Tories in their desire to see Brexit happen.
